Unlock Your Car With Your Mobile Phone

Have you ever foolishly locked your keys in the car?

Have you used your mobile to call for help?


Well, if so, perhaps you could use your mobile phone and the contents of this email to solve the problem…

Lock the keys in the car?

If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are home, call someone on your cell phone.

Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the other person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the 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!)

It works fine! I’ve tried it and it unlocked my car!

Of course this is utter rubbish, an email hoax that simply doesn’t work. You cannot unlock a car with RF signals so don’t waste time trying!

  4. *Eat what you like and stay active*…secret mantra of life is revealed to one and all…

  5. Sure Scammy I make good junk food at home…though I would prefer to call it tasty food!
    Tasty food is healthy food…what say?

    • I eat what I want, when I want and that makes me happy. Being happy then keeps me motivated to do other things I enjoy and so I keep fit.

      Who needs diets and fancy health foods huh?

  6. Yeah…I was reading the comments on xango and i think what everyone really needs is a break, c’mon go have a coke it is good for your health!!!! Stop worrying about health you will do enough good to yourself by not worrying. Everyone there sounds sooo health conscious.I want to scream.

    • You sound like my kind of girl… all I need to do now is get you round to cook me a some greasy fries and burgers 😀

  7. Let me guess you are upset that my avatar keeps disappearing, right? I was just seeing whether it came up without entering the url…

      I’ll have to write another post about dogs to get Emma back here!!

      • yeah and what happened to that guy jon? he just kind of dropped off the map didn’t he?

        Oh wait, there I am!

        sorry for my lack of comments, I don’t think I will come anywhere near contending with aruna/rani this month 🙁

        by the way, thanks for linking to my photo site here, do you want a better picture for that ad?

        I would be more than willing to provide one for you!


        • Yes, a better picture would be extremely handy please Jon.

          Busy with work this month??

        • Ok Jon, I shall upload it as and when I get it.
          Told you Rani was cute didn’t I!

        • I’m sure she’ll go all shy now!

        • yeah, we are finally getting a project off the ground that I suggested a while ago, so it is sort of a pet project and its not going anywhere if I don’t drive it so….

          Plus, I have been spending a lot of time researching on problogger and others, so that my blogs have less fluff, all meat! I am experimenting with wordpress and I think I like it better, but I don’t want to make the switch until I know what my ‘purpose’ is and which blogs will stay/go.

          I will email you a better picture when I get a second, meetings all night tonight and an early morning tomorrow, so maybe tomorrow night.


          love the picture Rani!

        • thanks


          you did

        • ha ha, bet you are really

        • Thanks Jon, Scammy
          Shy? me? Never! 🙂

  9. Yes! No one can work here on Diwali with all the crackers and noise!!!

  10. yes it has a story behind it…wikepedia describes it better. Generally, every Hindu gets up early at about 4 am, has oil head bath, wears new clothes, bursts cracker, eats sweets visits relatives and friends.

  11. Day after tomorrow is Diwali celebrated in a big way here, much like your Halloweens day lots of sweets and crackers.

  12. It is probably the season…this time of the year people are either busy celebrating, functions, and festivals or falling sick, I think

  13. thats ok 🙂
    the overall design is good!

  14. That’s a much better picture by the way 🙂

  15. Funny!but what if both keys and cell are in the car?!
