What do you mean it won't unlock? Is it not accepting the password?

I would try removing the battery and trying again.

I had no password in it, simply went to icon and locked it. usually have to push * send to unlock but it is not giving me that option have pulled battery and sd card, also reloaded os but all with no success.

If it's not giving you the option, what shows when you select unlock?

Can you select any of those icons?

If you're seeing icons, then the device doesn't sound locked to me.

kinda sounds like "standby" and not "lock" or the battery is very discharged.

Yeh does sound like standby.
