Check the handset is tri band.

And that the handset is unlocked to all networks. If purchased from an auction check the wording on the description. You can launch a dispute in certain circumstances.

Try an alternative sim card and another network sim to see if it's the sim your using is defective or not. Most market traders can unlock handsets for a nominal fee.
