Take it to the dealer - they will unlock (think more than unlock - the unit has to be programmed) it for you.

2007 chevy tahoe touch screen radio will not respond to touch, everything else works fine.

If the electrical contacts that go to the rear door lock are corroded the lock/unlock switch will not work. Spray WD-40 (with the spray wand) from inside the truck into the space between the truck and door on the passenger side. A few squirts near the top and upper side will give enough electrical conductivity to energize the lock.

I changed the stereo in my 2007 h3 hummer and now it is locked how do i unlock it?

GM radios must be programmed to match the Vehicle identification number installed at the factory. Any GM dealer can reprogram this to work. Should cost half an hour labor. Get the price quote prior to service. I have done plenty.

Radio has what looks like a phone symbol on it. Nothing else works on radio. Volume knob still reacts. On star phone comes on and will disconnect. Radio, CD, etc never comes back on. Symbol stays on all...

The 2009 Saturn Aura added the bluetooth (phone) feature and many other GM models with similar looking radios had it in past model years. The 2007 did not come with bluetooth (or Human Machine Interface).
There are two possibilities: the radio has been changed from another vehicle and is incompatible with your car or locked or your OnStar is malfunctioning. Either situation will require a trip to your friendly Saturn dealership (or Saturn Service Center) to repair.

2005 gm delco radio, cd/cassette player rds to unlock

I recall having seen this problem posted by another and I think you are stuck going to the dealer (with proof that you didn't rip it out of someone else's dashboard) to get it unlocked. This is one of those things done to ding accessory thieves that often bites original owners after battery changes/failures.
