    Maybe it was an unlocked iPhone, and now with 4.3.3 the unlock was closed by the update? Where did you bought it?

    Your phone was previously hacked to work with your carrier.  It is apparently carrier locked to another network.

     

    At least that's the way it sounds.

     

    Where are you. What network carrier do you use, and where did you get the phone?

    You can contact the carrier in Barcelona to which the phone is locked and request it be unlocked.

     

    If the carrier will not unlock the phone, you can always sell it and either purchase an unlocked iPhone in a country that sells them, or purchase another phone that you can use in Algeria.

    Only the original carrier can authorize an unlock. Depending on who the original carrier was, you may be able to have them unlock it. If not, I'm afraid you're left with a paperweight. Consider selling it and purchasing one intended for your carrier of choice or legitimately factory unlocked.
