Your phone has suffered a severe software failure and may need professional attention, but you have nothing to lose by trying the following steps (courtesy of GaryCutri on blackberryforumscom.au):-

1. Download the latest firmware from carrier's website - FULL LIST
2. Install the firmware onto a PC running BlackBerry Desktop Manager. DO NOT CONNECT YOUR BLACKBERRY TO THE PC YET!
3. Open Desktop Manager > Select Applications Loader > Select Update Software > Leave the Device PIN\Password prompt on screen.
4. Connect the device and when the PIN appears (or even if it says PIN: UNKNOWN) press OK. If the PIN doesn't appear connect the device with the battery removed and when the PIN appears press OK.
5. Once the device is detected it will show you a list of the firmware to be installed. If this is only a short list select Advanced (or Options on some version) so you can see the full list of software. Ensure you select all the required components.
6. Continue through the wizard and the device will be reloaded within 45 minutes. Please ensure you do not interrupt this process.
7. Once the device is reloaded you will need to resend your BIS service books or if you are on BES (Corporate users only) you will have to reactivate the device (you will need the I.T. department to assist you with this step).

I think your password counter failure has been reached maximum limit. You supposed to be use your puk code to unlock blackberry 8520 pin, the only option left that you can do is doing cable unlocking process at mobile repair shop. That method will make your blackberry unlocked from your current password and network carrier.

SIM CARD:

If you enter a wrong PIN code too many times, usually three, your SIM will lock itself. This protects you from someone using your personal information or making calls if your cell phone is lost or stolen. You may see "PIN blocked" or Enter PUK code" on your cell phone display. The PUK code stands for PIN Unblocking Key. In the U.S., the PUK code is rarely provided when you get your subscription.

If you do not have your PUK code, contact the Customer Care customer again. Give them your phone number and once they are sure it is really you, they will give you the PUK code.
You will then be asked to set a new PIN code. Once you have your PUK be sure to keep it in a safe place.

Note that if you enter a wrong PUK 10 times in a row, the SIM will be permanently blocked, and you'll need to purchase a new SIM card.
