Have you locked your keys in the car? Does your car have a remote ?

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).

Wow, thats interesting, never heard of that trick. I do indeed have a remote for my van. I have never locked keys in the car yet that I can remember. I have lost the keys and had to hunt them down because I went to the car and couldn't leave! I hope I never lock them in! I would love to have onstar though, plan to get it on my next car, which will be a few years, I am forcing my van to last!
