    Perhaps it was once locked to a carrier, then badly unlocked, and the restore has relocked it?

    Welcome to Android Central! Have you already tried a replacement SIM?

    If you changed the SIM, the phone may be locked to the old carrier - (does it ask for an unlock code - then you'll have to get the unlock code from them).

    Or if you changed regions (Asia to some other continent), it could be region-locked, and there's nothing you can do about that.

    And it has to be region unlocked before it gets locked, so unless your carrier can help you with it, you have a phone you may be able to sell to someone in Pakistan (or wherever it was originally working).
