Well, windows phones screen locks are pretty solid.You may have to factory reset. What is the model of your phone? The model will be under battery. You can google how to reset the phone by that model number from samsungs website. But here is samsungs windows mobile phones usual combination to get into recovery.

1. Make sure you have enough battery life.
2. Turn off the phone by pressing the power button and holding it for a few seconds then scroll down to turn off the phone.
3. Press the Volume Down Key + Power Key to turn on the unit
4. Still hold the volume down key, then release Power Key.
5. Wait for the startup screen booting with an exclamation mark " ! " then release the volume down key.
6. Look for your factory reset option.
7. Wait a moment and look at the screen, a message such as loading new software will start the hard reset process

SOURCE: forgot SIM lock

Did you try so called "puk" codes? If you did this that I'm afraid you will have to visit your operator. :(

Frigidaire Gas Self Cleaning Oven door open in lock position

Hello ericndiana6b - Was the unit in self-clean mode? Try pressing and holding the "Clear/Off" button to stop any operation of the EOC. Do this at the same time while pushing and hold the light switch to the left of the door lock. Usually this will trick the oven into unlocking the door. If it is ineffective, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and redo the steps. If door continues to maintain locked while open, the unit may possibly have a faulty door latch or a communication problem with the EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

If you're still stuck. More then likely the only thing to do is a factory reset, I locked my own self out of the phone within the first 20 minutes I had it. Only after a certain amount of incorrect inputs, it put a time limit, and at the end of the time, every failed attempt doubled the amount of time I had to wait. You will lose everything on your phone if you do you do this.

1. Press and hold the Camera, Volume Down, and Power buttons simultaneously.
2. Release Power when the phone vibrates, but continue to hold down Camera and Volume Down.
3. Release Camera and Volume Down when the Format prompt is displayed on screen.
4. Press Windows logo.
5. Press Windows logo again to confirm the hard reset.

This is exactly what I did, and it worked.
