Samsung Galaxy 5 not allowing new sim card due to unkown sim card. In India and need help

Hi Tech Guys and Gals,
I am in India, visiting from PA, US. I purchased a sim card in India and put it in the phone, the phone states " sim detected unknown" it does not allow me to open the sim or use it. In the bar across the top of the phone it shows the sim card with a "?". I have tried every thing I can think of to access the new sim card. The sim card does work, I am currently using it in my computer. Any advice would be great, it sucks to be on the other side of the world without a phone!

Thank you ~Bobbie
