Simlock means it is network locked. in other words, unless it is unlocked, you will not be able to use it on any other network apart from that original one probably a Japan network. the good news is that most models can be unked these days, you just have to take it to an unlock shop.

Why my sim card showing emergency call only

You may have accidentally called 911 and hung up. You have to call 911 back simply explain that you made a mistake and they'll remove it from your phone through your number. Another reason would be that you either have a sim locked phone from your service provider and there is a different sim card from another service provider installed. You'll have to unlock the phone. OR your phone is locked for security reasons. A person can easily lock the phone in settings and apply a password to unlock the screen to access the phone. All of the above will give you the sceen you decribed.
