How can I message unlock if it is locked individually?
Actually there is no problem in pattern but there was an option of locking message individually. Please read my problem carefully. I have hold the particular SMS long time and there was an icon of key lock and I pressed over there. I did not put any password over there. later on when I wanted to open it, that locked SMS could not open. please suggest what can I do?
You can simply press and hold the SMS again, and the same screen will pop up that you used to lock your message. Then, press the lock icon again to unlock it. However, there should be no reason you can't read the message. The lock function is just there so that you can delete friendly chatter from a message thread, and save the important messages.
So when you select a thread to delete it, you'll be asked if you want to delete protected messages or not. Checking the box delete the protected messages, while leaving the box unchecked will not delete them.
If this has not explained your problem, and you are still having problems, you'll want to restart your Android phone, and make sure you are only running core apps, so that you can troubleshoot why your phone is having problems. The message lock not allowing you to open or read messages is not a standard Android behavior.
