Default Anyone interested in a experiment?

I got an email from my brother today at work and was thinking that this couldnt possibly work, or could it? Anyone care to try the experiment? I will when I get home as I am curious.

Think of it as BC Mythbusters

Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone, from having to drive your keys, to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk). Editor'* Note: It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a cell phone!"

nooo I was curious if this would actually work or not and since i'm at work and cant try it right now, I put it to you, my fellow mad scientists.

When I get the chance, I'm going to try it.

Busted. I dont think any cell phone speakers can create a radio wave, let alone a microphone that can pick one up.
