BB 8520 not unlocking

Hello guys!! I have a BB Curve 8520. I use passwrod to protect my phone. But, now the phone is locked and when I'm entering the password, the characters are being visible which does not normally happen. I don't wish to format my phone as am not sure if I have backed up my data or not. Kindly guide me. Any help will be truly appreciated.
