Unlocking car with cell phone

Well, it worked for *me* on my Nissan Micra and my brother's high-powered Merc.

We tested it and it worked first time.

Next on the bench: the anti-theft wheeze of punching in your PIN *backwards*.

  • It's meant to give you your money (thus staying the thief from whacking your head in and allowing him to think he knows your number), but lock the account thereafter and signal the fuzz the whereabouts of this use of the card.
