    Default Handy Feature for Mobile Phones and locked in keys

    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 boot).


    I got this from another site, and plenty of folk on there tried it various vauxhalls and even a few fords, all worked fine - give it a go, could really save time and hassle.

    I was going to try it, I asked the daughter to press the "door open" button, but it would reach the car from inside the house, so I will try it again somewhere else.... interesting to see if it works...

    Just tried it - nope, doesn't work for me. Stood far enough inside the house so that it wouldn't reach the car directly - and it didn't work no matter where the phone was held/pointed, how far from the car and phone etc.

    Edit: Did it work for you Ian?

    It's not April 1st so I'm hoping this isn't a wind-up!
