Because it is perhaps a RIM-locked unit or a factory testing model, or just plain dead that was never intended in the public.

Bottom line: it is a dead BlackBerry and nothing you can do.

Where'd you get it?

No, you can't change a PIN on a BB.. it is hard coded into the device.

taobao is like eBay, you should be more careful and get your money back from the seller.
Buying a BlackBerry off eBay - BlackBerryFAQ.com

For telephone and SMS use, no problem as it is.

Good luck.

You can use it as a phone, SMS, calendar, address book.

You cannot get a BB Data Plan or email to it.

It's good to have you in the group, fzw83!

We are all in continuous study, too. That's the fun of the forums.

Sorry your lesson had a price this time. Good luck.
