when i hold the three buttons down for awhile nothing happens except that it buzzes the longer hold them but when i let go it stops and turns back on
2 and does the phone have to be off or can it be on while you are doing it?

I am getting the exact same issue as Jacob. The phone just vibrates and just restarts as usual with the "too many attempts" screen.
