Trick with Key Fob - You won't believe it! (Well I didn't)

My wife's parents were telling me how someone told them that you can unlock and lock your 370Z doors by using your cell phone. I didn't buy it at all.

Default Trick with Key Fob - You won't believe it! (Well I didn't)

My wife's parents were telling me how someone told them that you can unlock and lock your 370Z doors by using your cell phone. I didn't buy it at all. I figured it was one of those jokes where I would go home try it out and then get made fun of for believing the story. Well...it worked and it completely baffled me! Sorry if this trick has already been posted in another post.

I called my wife at work on my cell phone and told her to put the key fob up to her phone and hit the unlock button. At the same time I was holding my cell phone next to the door and all be damned it unlocked!!!

Try it out!

so let me get this straight. Your wife had the spare key fob at home, and while talking from her cell to your cell, she hit the unlock button, while you had your cell next to the door handle?
