Forgotten iPhone passcode - how many attempts do you get before it locks permanently?

I seriously can't believe I've done this, but I changed my iPhone passcode tonight and can 't remember what I changed it to!! I think I know the 4 or 5 digits involved, but that's still a lot of combinations!

How many passcode attempts do you get before the iPhone locks permanently?

As a result of incorrect guesses, it's been disabled for 1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, now 60 minutes!!
