The interference caused by both remote frequency is why it didn't work.
This is normal, try it at home with your TV and stereo remotes. If they use the same technology and you try and use two remotes at the same time you will get nothing or unexpected results. Think back to high school science class when you have two waves colliding you get a different wave pattern. The same thing will happen with the remotes signal.

Apparently for some manufactures you can use your remote via a cell phone.
Any one ever try that on there Subaru or any other manufacture?

It happens to me all the time, we have 3 Subies, and our 04 FXT remote will do the same thing if my husband and I both try to unlock our cars at the same time . Sometimes at our weekly/monthly meets we have to take turns unlocking our cars otherwise it gets really annoying having to press the button 5 times b.c everyone else is too lol.

I thought my Ford remote sucked till I bought my car. Subaru has a longer range than the Ford but only works 50% of the time. Kind of a tossup on which is worse.
