or for $19.95 you can activate one year of Uconnect Access and unlock the car from your cell phone. that's what i did when i walked by my jeep one day and pressed the lock button as a usually do to make sure the wife locked the car (she forgets sometimes) and then left for work. i didn't know her keys were in the car when i did that, so i activated the Uconnect Access and unlocked it from my phone.

Unconnect Access is not available in Canada...Not available on a Sport either, I don't believe.

Also....I was out of cell phone range.

When I got out of the car, in the middle of no where, I left my wallet, my cellphone, my house keys, my spare key, my sunglasses, my licence and registration, my lunch....and my dog, all in the car because I was not intending to lock the car when I got out. I was not worried about someone stealing those items from my car while I moved the branch. It is unlikely that I would have said, okay, I need to pocket my spare key, because the dog will stand on the armrest and lock the doors after I get out. If I had thought that far ahead with what prescience I might have had, I would have taken the car key out of the ignition and put that in my pocket. Or lowered my window. or not shut the door. Or taken the dog with me. **** happens. That spare key is not always going to be where you want it, when you want it.

As it happens there was a big rock lying next to my car which did the trick.

Went to a get together for a birthday party and threw my coat in the back-end and walked in. Partied on and toward the end, I wondered where my keys had went - they weren't in my pants pocket: "Hmm...where did they go? Were they in my coat in the back end? Did the door actually lock" - given my experience where the keys were in the front seat, the doors don't lock.

Time to leave and the wife and I walk to the Jeep and it is at least 3-degrees F out. I'm confident the keys are in the Jeep and expected the door to be unlocked because the keys were in it. But alas, guess the back-end is far enough to register as "out of range" and locked the doors. I panicked - it was cold and my wife doesn't like the cold. I tell her to go back inside and I call MOPAR to get a month of uConnect service pack. After about 10 minutes in 3-degree weather getting the 3rd degree for a month subscription, they got it open.

That was fun.......

I think it was about $14-16 for the month; it's been a while....
