Now days, almost everyone has a cell phone; at least it seems that way. I use my cell phone for a few other things than just talking. Such as: taking pictures, typing notes in my notepad, checking the time; and using my calendar. We all know about these features, and even more. But what about tricks most people don't know about? I thought it would be neat if we might have have some to share. I'll start with one I found: Using a cell phone to unlock your car when you lock the keys in it. If You have a remote keyless entry, and have a spare at home, you can call someone at home and they can push the unlock button while holding it close to their cell phone, while you're holding your cell phone about a foot away from the door. I WILL unlock the door.
Sonny, I have never heard of that! Is that with OnStar systems?
The folks that rudely use cell phones in public places, or while driving, would most likely not appreciate my opinion of what they can do with them. So I will refrain from posting my first thoughts on this topic.
Not to change the topic, but those keyless systems are great about not locking your keys in. I have 2 cars and they work differently. On the one car if you use the remote to lock the car it sets the alarm. The other car doesn't have an alarm. So if the alarm is set on the one and you try to use the door key to open it, it won't let you and the alarm will go off. I have accidently done it several times and it looks like I am trying to steal my own car! And it is not the horn blowing type alarm, but the shrill siren type.
Anyway, back to cell phones, I think one of the neatest things is they have been able to find missing or lost people from the cell phone signals.
