    Well 2.30.03 baseband can not be unlocked. But if your bootloader is 5.08 then you can down grade the baseband to 2.28.xx, and then you will be able to unlock the phone. If you can't down grade the baseband, then you can use a sim adapter.

    As Zwayne says, you need BB 2.28.00 to use YellowSn0w to unlock. The fact that your serial number starts 5K means it is a refurb unit so there is a possiblility that you have BL 5.8 so can downgrade your BB.
    First download Quickpwn 2.2.5-2 and jailbreak your phone then download FuzzyBBdowngrader from Cydia and see if you can downgrade your BB
