You will need to find a local cell phone dealer who will unlock it for you. Try searching for used cell phone dealers. I had the same problem with the AT&T scoundrels. The dealer near me charged me 20.00 and threw in a car chrger too.

I can't make calls directly from my BB8120 phone book because it adds +1 infront of the numbers. This phone is a T-Mobile phone bought in US and unlocked and sent to India

Hi , I think to make local calls you will have to add +91+ mobile no eg: 91XXXXXXXXXX in front of the mobile no. In order to make a call to land line you will have to add the city code + land line no . eg: If you want to call Hyderabad , the no will be like 040XXXXXXXX . To make a call to mobile no in other city add 0 in front of the mobile no eg : 0XXXXXXXXXX .

Wild card virgin mobile unlock

Give Virgin Mobile a call. They should be able to unlock the phone. If they can't, try taking it to another provider like Altell. They may be able to unlock the phone since it's technically an LG phone that they too provide. 
If those two options don't work, good luck getting the phone working.

Sim card not vaild

If the sim isnt accepted, that means that the phone is locked to t-mobile by the provider which she originally bought the phone from

The phone can usually be unlocked directly by T-mobile and would be worth a try to call T-mobile and provide them with the IMEI number of the phone (press *#06#) and get a unlock code from them.

Hope this helps
