    Unlocking your car from your cell phone??

    Advertisement



    so, i get a ton of "fwd" emails from my family...especially my aunts (they just love the internet).
    i received this email today discussing things you *could* use your cell phone for in an emergency and this was one...anyone ever tried this??

    Have you locked your keys in the car?
    Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come
    in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If
    you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at
    home, call someone at home on their cell phone from your
    cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your
    car door and have the person at your home press the unlock
    button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end.
    Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive
    your keys to you.
    Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away,
    and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote"
    for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).


    just wondering??

    I don't know about that... but I suppose I should give it a try to see if it works. If so then that is great!

    The instructions you listed are a little off.
    Try this -- It works!

    Call home.
    Have somebody hold your car remote up to their cell phone.
    Take three large steps backwards.
    Raise said cellphone in a sweeping motion up past your ear.
    Swift accelerate you arm forward, releasing the cellphone just as your right forefinger is pointing to your car window.
    With a little luck, the cellphone will go through said window, allowing you to easilly reach in and unlock to door.


    Sorry, cell phones and car remotes work on completely different frequencies, and that is the least of the technical problems with this bogus email.
