It appears to be a bug:
[REQ: PIN entry in gprs chatscript]

You migh be interested in these as well:

FWIW: I've no other knowledge/info regarding the Huawei, so try Google
as well:

[WWW] Huawei E220 uses a standard 6 PIN SIM card interface.

If you enter wrong PIN codes three times consecutively, your USIM/SIM
card is blocked. In this case, use the PIN Unblocking Key (PUK) code to
unblock it. If you enter wrong PUK codes ten times consecutively, your
USIM/SIM card is disabled. In this case, contact your service provider.

To avoid this, remove the PIN code verification from the SIM card. Place
it on a cellphone and disable it.
