Question So if the battery on the Key FOB dies....

....does that mean you won't be able to get into the car and/or start the engine?

I'm not sure the specifics of how the intellikey and system work, but at least with a conventional FOB, you have an actual key to use as back-up.

Actually there is an actual key inside the intellikey. You can slide it out easily if need be to get in car. Inside the car on the left below steering wheel there is a slot for the intellikey to go to start up the car in case of dead battery.

SIK1 beat me to the short answer, but check pages 3-2 thru 3-15 in the owner's manual for everything you want to know about the Intellikey.

That's cool... I didn't know there was a key that can slide out of the FOB. Anyone have a pic? So that takes care of starting the engine....but how would you get into the car? There's not slot for a key on any of the doors...just the button, right?

And Silent Z....I'm not an owner yet...but a potential owner, so I don't have any manuals to look through yet. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction though for whenever/if ever I get the car. (Currently also considering the Mazda 3).

Silent Z posted a link to get to the online version of the owner's manual, if you are interested. (click the "owner's manual" in his post...)

don't allow the battery to completely die, =D
if it dies, walk to the pharmacy and pick up a new battery

I would recommend checking out my sticky (2007 Altima Manuals & Guides (PDFs)) with all the documentation for the 07 Altima. It was a great help to me when I was in the market for the car. It provided great insight into not only the features of the car, but also their functionality.

Yep...Thanks for the link, Silent Z! *sigh* I saw it after I typed my last response, and immediately went on to read the manual. Thanks!

Yeah I was wondering the same thing , what I did was go to nissan.com, and under owners, I checked out the 07 altima owners manuel, cause I was curious about bulbs sizes, oil, cvt info etc, and yeah about the key battery dying, and the tire pressure sensor. Good thing nissan thought about that

There are three places on the car where you can use the REAL key. The driver's side door lock, the glove-box, and the rear-seat trunk-entry button. That was you can lock out the valet from the trunk with the button in the glove box, lock the glove box, and you only have to give them the fob, just slide the key right out.

actually, you dont want to give your key fob to valets. The key is for valets to use. Giving valets your key fob allow them to clone it. Same way as if you had regular keys and a normal key fob. You only had them the keys and disconnect the fob from the key ring.

That doesn't make any sense. You can't start the car without the fob. And you can't "copy" the fob the way you would a normal key. The physical key can't start the car, and without it they can't access any of the places that you wouldn't want a valet in (just like how a valet key doesn't work in your glove box). The fob is definitely the piece you hand to the valet.
I have LoJack installed on mine, and my key chain has the LoJack Early Detection system on in, so that if they drive my car more than necessary (like for 5 minutes, or a few miles), then it sends me a text message, and if I gave them the physical key, that would be attached. That would defeat the purpose. If, however, I take the key out and give them just the fob, then I have all the pieces I need, and the have only enough to drive the car a little bit.
