Has the iPhone been locked to a carrier in the past?

If yes, has it been officially unlocked by that original carrier?

In that case it could be, that the restoring process locked it again to the original carrier, if the software of the phone had been modified to allow the use of other SIM cards.

But, it might also be, that your SIM card has been damaged and you'll need to get it replaced by your carrier.

I think the network lock got restored. There are many ways to unlock an iPhone and I sort the safe way to unlock mine, through permanent unlock service from Simpleunlocking.com and you can try there too.
