I stepped out of my car to put some air in my tires thinking it'd be ok since my phone was in the car and the walk away lock should not have activated, but nope! I closed the door and not even a min later I turned back around to grab some coins for the air machine and was locked out! Prior to getting out ofthe car I was playing music from my phone so it's not like the phone was not connected via Bluetooth!
The phone (iPhone X) as a key is pretty unreliable and 80% of the time I have to wake up my phone in order to et it to connect to unlock the car so I thought maybe if I called my phone to wake it up I might be able to unlock the car, but nope!
Ended up having to call Tesla's roadside assistance to unlock my car for me, it was very embarrassing...
TLDR: never leave your car with your phone and key card in it!
