The VL version of this phone is using the CDMA SIM card technology which means that you need a CDMA enabled SIM card to be able to use the carrier networks.

After some search I've found that both GSM and CDMA technologies are available. Look for a CDMA SIM card and the phone should work.

Also, it might be possible that the phone is locked and needs a SIM card for the carrier network where the phone was attached to. Visit a local phone service shop and they should provide all the necessary details about this.
