That message generally means that you hacked your phone to unlock it, iTunes has detected such, errored out, thus preventing your phone from activating.
Since Apple does not support hacking of iPhones, that's what happens, & since Apple owns this forum, we are unable to provide further support.

Thanks for the reply. I asked someone to get it unlocked and he only suggested me to restore it. And according to him the phone is been unlocked so I can use it properly now. Is it possible that the phone is giving this error even if it was unlocked by legitimate way?

I enquired everything about the mobile. Here is the scene. This mobile was first jailbroken and was given to me. I used if for almost 2 years. Then just few days back I asked someone to unlock since I was not knowing before that this is a jailbroken mobile. That person unlocked it by legal means. And when I restored it (which I was able to do properly) and activated it, it gave me the above error. So what should be the possible solution for this now? I hope there is some way to use the mobile again.

That's your problem, & why you got that error. The only way to get any iPhone officially unlocked, is to get the carrier the phone is locked to to authorize such. There is no other way to get an iPhone officially unlocked.
Get this "person" to fix things for you, as they are the one that hacked your phone.

ok.. This means even if my phone was jailbroken before. Now if is unlocked by the carrier, I should be able to use it properly. Without getting these kind of messages? How can I know that carrier to which my phone is being locked?

One last question. I asked the guy and he said he unlocked in by the carrier. But even if he didn't. What if he hacked my phone to unlock it. Is there any way by which now I can correct it since I don't want to use such an illegal mobile. It's my bad that I did not enquire all thi e before buying the mobile from him.
