Recently bought a blackberry 8100 second hand, when I turned it on a screen came up to say I needed to unlock the phone, I had three options, 'unlock', 'emergency call' and 'cancel' I tried using the last 4 numbers of my mobile number..but think Ive locked the phone. I turned it off and turned it back on and now all it shows is a white screen with what looks like a tape in a circle with a line through it and the number 507 below. Do I need a Puk code? And if so how can I enter it when no button on the keypad will bring up an option to do anything? Please help (Thankyou)
This is exact thing happened to me. all i did was call customer service and tell them a friend of mine sold this phone to me and they never gave me the passcode. They unlocked my phone, although they wiped the entire thing.

With that error note, you need to unlock your Phone. It just simply mean that your Blackberry is still operator locked, and would just accept its original operator sim.
There are several ways to unlock your phone.
Unlock by operator- where you will ask for unlock code FROM the original operator where the phone is locked to.
Unlock by codes where you will buy unlock codes from sites.Have a search on Google for unlock codes for Blackberry, I cant mention examples, I dont want to be endorsing sites.
Lastly professional Unlocking which is performed by technician using special gadgets and softwares.
Hope This helps.
