Cannot unlock ignition, unable to turn steering wheel to unlock ignition. The key is in the ignition. I cannot turn it, and am unable to remove the key from the ignition. The steering wheel is locked, and I am unable to move it.
Do you
have the same problem?

Sounds like the tumblers in the lock are jammed up. Try tapping lightly on the end of the key while trying to turn it and see if you can get it to turn on. Don't lock it again if you can. You will have to replace the lock.

Failed to mention that the key is broken off in the ignition! (Sort of like going to the doctor and not telling her where it hurts!).
