    opening your s3 with a mobile phone?

    Hello All,

    Can you really open your S3 with a mobile phone? I have read this is a hoax but a friend of mine swears he tried it and it worked. Basically today I locked my keys in my boot - the rumour is that if you get someone to call you when you are stood by your phone and blip the remote at the other end of the phone that some phone can transmit the signal.

    Will this work and has anyone tried it?

    Cheers

    Brian

    but it looks like a hoax. My question is has anyone actually tried it? I only ask because I locked my keys in my boot at lunchtime!

    So is someone prepared to try this ? hold the phone near the drivers door and get a mate to call you and keep bliping the keyfob at the other end.

    Sort it once and for all.......

    Just cause it works on one doesnt ment it will on all

    Different spec'd cars have different spec'd convienice control units. You may find it works with cars that have sunroofs but not on those that dont due to the different way of recieving the signal

    Sounds like rubbish. Thats like saying if you hold your phone up to your wireless router your mate can connect to your network.

    I tried this, held my phone up to the car and some mugging ******* hit me in the side of the head and tried making off with my phone.

    Couldnt follow him either as I didnt have the keys to my car! My mate had them 2 miles away

    lol! Another hoax!

    I tried it twice so 6 times in total... guess its a wrong number!

    I did notice however that if I said it into a phone while standing near a brand new 911 the doors opened and the engine started... could be a fluke tho

    Anyone wanna confirm if this works for me or not?

    Uk/European remotes generally work with a 433.05434.79 MHz (433.92MHz) wireless carrier wave, using amplitude modulation.

    A mobile picks up and sends a stunted set of frequencies from within the range of the average human voice.

    Even if a mobile could pick up the signals and transfer them through the packet based mobile system, the phone could not replicate the RF signal on the other end, and i suspect the timing would be altered enough for the remotes 'individual' signal to be 'broken'.

    And for the record, the moon 'is' made of cheese.
