Someone may have attempted access to your account and that is why it is locked out. Can you please describe your problem more clearly so that I can better assist you. Are you able to put your user name and password in and then after you submit it says you are locked out? Once I have more information I will be glad to assist you further. Also at anytime you can take a moment to accept and rate my solution.
Thanks,
Lee

Sorry to say,but, you are a victim of account hijacking, where someone else steals your password and then changes it to deny you access.

You should contact Yahoo Support

My phone was ok i was just looking through it all and it said sucurity so i pressed ok and it said phone lock and next 1 down said sim lock so i put a password in but cant remember them but a few days


If it is a sim lock then that is on the SIM card itself! If it is a phone lock then you can factory reset the phone to wipe the codes! This is done by a phone shop!

Cant get into my laptop keeps saying wrong password and its not


Have you tried upper and lower case letters?, did you have caps lock on without noticing it was on when entering the password?
Does it have and zeros or o's in the password, sometimes people put the wrong one in. Is it a real word or just random letters and numbers, may be one of them is incorrect.
