Please help-I'm locked out of my 2002 325i

I can only open my driver's door with the key. I can't open the other doors at all, not even manually from the inside. I can open the trunk with the remote, however. Any suggestions?

Can the key turn at all it sounds like the locking mechanisms froze my 89 had a hard time with passenger door (inner pull wouldn't raise) but if i turned the key and held it i could open it. I understand yours is a couple generations newer but wth worth a try????

Also, did you pull the interior door handles ONCE, or TWICE? If you pull them twice they should unlock.
