I Think My Phone is Blocking the Key fob From Doing its Thing

I have an HTC Mogul (Sprint) and I've noticed that if it's in the same pocket or within 6" of my key fob, comfort access won't work. I take the phone out of my pocket and it works. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hmm I have noticed that my comfort access doesn't work sometimes but could never figure out why, but this could be it... maybe another member on the forums has more info on this? (i haven an iPhone)

I have noticed that as well. This morning my car showed the no-key sign when I was in the car with the key; however, I did have my iphone with me. I'll investigate this situation more to see if there is a corelation between phone and key, but not sure if there is a solution to if there is. If any finds out something let everyone know.

I have a 335i but it has CA and I've noticed the same thing. If my cell is in the same pocket with the key fob, CA doesn't always work.

Then it works, it only seems to be an issue if they're right next to each other. It's not really an "issue" for me, I just make sure now that I don't carry my cell and keyfob in the same pocket.
