I have 99 GA GT, keys have not worked for the trunk for awhile (not sure why), so I decided to not read the manual to see what the trunk lock did, and apparently it locks you out from using the button inside the door as well. :) Now, I cannot get into my wonderful trunk.

No keychain trunk release
No seat fold down (has to be released first in the trunk!)

Any ideas or sneaky tricks I could try to pry this silly thing open?

your key fob doesn't work? Nor does the actual key (the main ignition key also opens the trunk)?

Thanks for your comments, but no, the actual key does not work.....that's what my original note states...the key is not working...there is no remote trunk release...AND now that it is "Locked" the button inside the car on the door, is not working either.

keyless entry perhaps but actual key should still work regardless

Spray alot of a penetrating lubricant like Rust Check into the lock, let it sit for awhile, then start working the key in the lock. It should work. My old truck had keyless entry, when it went for service I gave them the spare key (no remote) Every time I got it back they were after freeing up the locks (I never used them) to get into the truck!!!
