Remote to Genie

My Genie functions fine,About a week or so ago,when using remote to open up guide or playlist--it froze.

I couldnot escape out, change channel, play, delete, etc.

Reception is excellent. Also, about same time, my car alarm started going off randomly several times a day

for about 15 or more seconds and stops.  I checked battery on key fob, it was good, but fob lost programming.

I changed remote to genie --brand new and new batteries, couple days later program list frozen, had to wait minutes

to exit. Then my cell phone wouldn't ring in my apt.  Didn't work for about 3 hours.

What would cause the genie to freeze, my car alarm to go off & fob not work, and then cell phone to not function?

If not ghosts, then possibly Gremlins?
