If you mean you unlocked it by removing the tie to the company that was specified by Walmart who sold you the phone, then the cellphone carrier has locked it. They are subsidizing the cost of the phone, they need you to buy airtime to get the cost of the phone back and make a profit.

If that isn't correct, contact the cellular carrier or visit their shop or mall kiosk.

I can't find any cellular carrier called 'prvoided' as you stated above.
