You can unlock it by flashing your mobile if your mobile is a CDMA mobile...
The procedure for flashing your mobile is in the link below
It has an video explanation.

If your mobile is not an CDMA mobile , you can get the network unlock code(NUC) by just contacting the current network provider customer caredepartment.It is free of cost.

Therestrictioncodecan be got from your old service provider..This restriction code iskeptto prevent someone who stole themobile from using it withanotherprovider...

They will have a security check done with your date of birth verify whether you are the exact owner of the phone..

After that they will provide you the restriction code to unlock it and use it with another service provider..

It is all free of cost donot pay anyone for this seeing some advertisement over internet . That is all fake ads.

The above proceudre works and you can verify that by seeing the rating of an happy customer here..

Restriction code unlock

If you purchased your handset directly from your network on either Pay As You Go or Pay Monthly, there is a reasonably good chance it'll be locked. There are some tell-tale signs of a locked phone:

The phone packaging/box has your operator's logo on
The phone itself is branded with the operator's logo
You see your operator's logo every time you turn on your phone

There are items relating to your operator in the main menu (e.g. Vodafone 360, Orange World)... although sometimes you'll see the branding even on a phone which isn't locked

The best way to definitively test if your phone is locked is to grab yourself a free Pay As You Go SIM card from a network apart from your own. If your phone is unlocked the phone should start up as normal, display the name of your new network and allow you to make calls. If your phone is locked, it'll will display an error message or ask you to enter a "subsidy PIN".

If you purchased your phone as "SIM-free", "handset only" or "unlocked" then you should find that your phone is unlocked.

Why are phones locked?

In the USA, service providers often offer free phones that can only be used own their networks. They lock out other service providers should you decide to give away the free phone for use by anotheron a different network.

In the UK, the networks operators often subsidize their phones. They do this in an attempt to attract customers to their network - consumers, particularly Pay As You Go customers, tend to be fairly network agnostic: they choose a phone that they want and then they find the network which offers the phone for the least amount of money. In order to attract these customers, networks subsidize the phones and often sell them as a "loss leader" hoping to make back the money through selling airtime. So that you can't simply buy a subsidized phone from Network A (which loses money on the phone) and then instantly use it on Network B (which makes the profit from the airtime), the phone would be sold to you "locked" to Network A so you could only use it on that network.

Am I allowed to unlock my phone? Is it legal?

Yes, it is totally legal to unlock your phone so that you can use it on a different network. This is different from unblocking (modifying a phone so it works after the networks have blocked it because it has been lost or stolen) which is illegal.

How do I unlock my phone?

The "official" way of unlocking your phone is to call up your network and to ask for a "subsidy PIN". This is a code which you'll need to enter on your phone to unlock it. Your network should be able to give you a quote to how much it'll cost to unlock your phone and provide instructions on how you use your phone. The cost of obtaining a subsidy PIN is typically around $10-$15 but it could be a lot more for newer phones.

If you've got an iPhone, the process of unlocking differs. See our detailed guide to unlocking your iPhone.

There are some "unofficial" ways to unlock your phone - for example by jailbreaking or rooting. These will almost certainly invalidate your warranty, can damage your phone if carried out incorrectly and may require you to unlock the phone again each time a software update is released. Personally, I would recommend paying the fee to unlock your phone properly.

Is my network legally obliged to unlock my phone for me?

No. They are under no legal obligation to unlock your phone. However, most networks should unlock your phone for a small fee (around $10-$25). The exact amount will depend on which phone you have and occasionally how long you've had it.

Cannot detect other sim card

It is possible that your phone is locked to the network as it is working only with the present SIM.
So please call up your operator to confirm and if so get the unlocking code specially if the period of locking is over. This can be used to unlock your phone to work with any SIM.

Before you can unlock the phone so that it can work with other networks, there are some things you might need to know.
These are
1. The phone might not work to the best of your satisfaction after unlocking. Note that, I said might not work. This is because there might be frequent loss of network and failure to detect new sim card sometimes.
If you plan to go ahead with the unlocking, There are two major ways by which it can be done.
First of all, you can go to a local phone repairer and ask him to help you unlock the phone. he would unlock the phone using a computer and it is usually not very expensive to do.
On the other hand, you might want to go online to certain websites that help you get the unlock code for your phone for a small fee which is paid through the use of a credit card.
Some of these sites are
