it's gonna take me a while to try and this is too good not to share till I find out if it works so give this a go

SECOND: Subject: 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). Editor's Note: It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a cell
phone!"

THIRD: Subject: Hidden Battery Power Imagine your cell battery is very low. To
activate, press the keys 3370# Your cell will restart with this reserve and the instrument
will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your
cell next time.

(number one was worthless)

If you think about it, a cell phone can only transmit audio...you don't transmit a radio signal (or whatever else the wireless signal is) to the other cellphone.

depends on the range of the speaker though...maybe some fabs transmit high frequency

Why your door?
The receiver isnt in your door...
I think they might work.
The key things
The battery power...
I doubt it.
Im too lazy to park my car at the end of the street and have someone call me with my keys.
Eventially i will though.

the antenna is usually up the pillar and around the top of the front windshield ... although sometimes its on the back windshield.

I think that's the radio not the recieving antennae for the key fab...I don't know though...my car it's in the trunk

the remote control door lock receiver (it's called the RCDLR) I think uses it's own internal antenna, I know it does on my car

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
