the password can be unlocked easly, but unlocking the rlock command is difficult and impossible.
if you need help , then the only way is contacting your service provider to unlock it, or buy new modem which should be unlocked.

Well i took to long typing my answer, so i'll recap in short.

force a redboot
uses its cli take control, and modify what you need. this will fix the console password.
if you want telnet and remote password changed.
find an opt file with a password you know works, then copy this block into your current opt file that is passworded.

     password = @#kjhkj323234

save and reload.
If you can get the opt file cause the modem is locked. after utilizing redboot, navigate to the falcon.opt file and modify from there and after you save the file, reboot and you should be good.
