If Verizon is going to put something in there store to make you thing there signal is great that also screws up cars outside, someone needs to know how to turn it off!
    Cell towers will put out the same frequencies as a booster, and have a lot more power. If you put another car in the same spot and it has a problem, then report the interference to the FCC. I suspect is shielding in our car, battery condition of fob, and the exact orientation you parked your car.

    To claim this is malignant deception is just over the top.

    I pictured it as one of those Chevron toy cars but with toes.

    Wait, is there no way at all to start the car without a fob/remote? That would be almost beyond odd.

    Stay away from Verizon Stores

    Sounds like more of a defect with the car.

    Btw, you don't need a fobbed Corvette to stay away from some stores. My hometown store's snootiness is sufficient.

    I'd like to see the other forum posts. I did a Google search and the only relevant thing I could find is this thread. Do you know for sure it's the "booster" that is causing this? From the basic research that I've just done it appears that the fobs operate at a frequency of 315 MHz which isn't anywhere near the frequencies that Verizon uses.

    Assuming that what you say is true I still wouldn't expect VZW to "know" that it's an issue since it doesn't appear to be a widespread problem.

    That's the new thing to make things "easier" for the consumer. There's new technology that makes life easier, then there's new technology that is just wasteful and a pain in the *** when it breaks down.

    The keyless remote is how the push button start cars work...you can keep the fob in your pocket and just push the button to start the car. I assume it uses something like RFID for authentication making the fob mandatory.

    It's that shiny, metal thing that can't be hacked, and still works even when all power is gone All this stuff is cool and exciting, but I have to wonder sometimes if we aren't making our world less secure.

    The more tech the better. We will now be able to bypass shopping checkout lines thanks to RFID tags and iPad like devices on our shopping carts as soon as you enter an item in the cart it appears on tithe screen and when you leave te front doors of the shop you are billed via your direct link to your bank account
