Modern mobile phones are largely "Customised" for certain network providers. This includes "Locking" the phone to the network that has had the "Customisation" done for them.

Network providers have their handsets "Locked" in the attempt to keep their customers (Us) from using their handsets on other networks.
The theory is...If your handset only works on their network you will be less likely to move to another provider.

Since you have had your handset brought from the State to India I'm 99% sure that your handset is locked to the Network provider it was used on in the states.

So until you get the "unlock" code that the previous provider knows it can only be used on the one providers network.

However as your phone is not so new a simple search for unlocking will give you either IMEI unlocking where you send your IMEI number to an unlocking website and they will send you a code to unlock your phone.
Or you can use allgsm and it is all done for you via your data cable over the internet. Obviously all 3 of these options need require you to pay.

2.ask him or her to transfer you too customer care.
3.then ask the customer care agent for the SIM SUB SIBY unlock code.
4. he or she will ask you for the IMEI number, if you dont know that number, just dial *#06# or you can find it on the back of your phone under the battery. IMEI number is a 15 digit code.
this will let you use your sidekick 08 in another country.
