The phone is sim locked to one particular network. You will have to find out which network it is sim locked to and get an unlock code from them.

By "SIM free" do you mean that the phone is unlocked?

 

If so, why do you think that it's unlocked? Was it sold to you as such?

I bought it from Amazon as it was described as Nokia Lumia 520, 8Gb, Sim Free Windows Smartphone - Black.

It's likely that the seller used misleading information, and the phone isn't unlocked.

Go to   'Settings'  on your phone, then open   'about windows phone.

 If it's tied to a carrier it should be there.

Thanks. It is locked to EE. Information was not correct on the website.
