things to ponder late at night

just wondering if any one has tried this? and does it work?

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 mobile 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 mobile phone!'

Like KT we don't have any auto door locks on our vehicles. Their either too old or not fancy enough. I never lock my doors and have a bad habit of leaving the keys in the car My only "car" is a convertable so I always leave it unlocked. Figure I'd rather have them open the door than cut the top to steal something.

Some friends of ours own a few relatively expensive vehicles and by habit they never lock their car either. They say that if someone wants to steal your car they will do it whether or not your car is locked, so they save themselves a broken window. They made out of habit to always leave their car unlocked.

Not something I would start doing...

I tried that on our car. It worked! You have to hold the cell phone right over the keyless receiver though.

Cool. I could try this in some day.

Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
