    Ok I have to debunk the cell phone thing.
    Phones operate on a full duplex system they transmit sound as we can hear it. The mic picks up the pressure waves of sound and the phone sends it as an electronic signal (digital in most cases) through a system. The receiving phone also full duplex does the same thing. There is no way a phone can transfer an RF signal. Microphones are simply not designed to pickup that type of signal. Nor are the phone companies charging for RF signal passing. I'm sure they would if they could.

    I am surprised it worked for the other guy.

    These days I use my cell phone to open car doors by dialing AAA. (*222 from most cell phones)
    Having spent sometime as a car repossesor one of my favorite tools was the wedge. Early wedges were made of nylon and lifted the door off the frame enough to allow use of various wire tools to open the door lock. The later wedges were the inflatable type and that made it easy to control the amount of wedge and prevent scratches to the paint.

    I have improvised by using a wedge made from scrap wood and a wire hanger bent just right.

    I'd get one of those tennis ball thingys but I think you have to be blonde for it to work properly!

    I know its kinda late now but for future reference when I locked my keys in my car my buddie told me to put any chevy key in the door and it would work. I didn't believe it would but sure enough it did. I have done it over 20 times to friends and family over the past couple years and it always works

    Not true at all. What would be the point of door locks if this were true? Granted, there are cases where more than one GM truck use the same key code - it happened to my stepdad once when he drove my truck for the day but though he had driven his 2005 sierra and the key worked on somebody else's identical sierra.

    THAT being said, there is absolutely no way you used any old chevy key on over 20 vehicles and got it to work. I think the tennis ball would have a better chance. No offence intended here, but what you said is just 100% impossible.

    I didn't think is was true either but I tried it and it works. If you don't believe me go try it. I've done it multiple times and I asked myself the same question. Why even have door locks.

    I have tried it. We used to have multiple GM trucks. Keys were always different and never interchangeable. My dad has worked in sales at a variety of GM dealers within the last 12 years as well, so I've used hundreds of GM truck keys, often the wrong one when keys are either labelled wrong or only by color & year. I've also worked in a shop that had a policy of not using the remotes on vehicles, and where keys were not labelled. If there were more than one GM, you would take all the GM keys and find the ONE that worked on that car. Never have I encountered any keys that work interchangeably. I won't deny it happens because I know it does, but I can't with any good sense believe that it could happen that often. I'd have to venture a guess that either you are a master of coincidences or that the door locks on most to all of these vehicles are broken.
