I have heard the same thing about the deyless entry over the mobile phone but can't test it out.

I call my car (Dual Cab Hilux 4wd) 'Basic Barry' as it doesn't have climate control, carpet, velour interior, CD player or remote locking. It does however air conditioning. Can I turn that on with a mobile phone..... oh, what's the point???
