I've never had a door remote for my galaxy since I have owned it, does anyone know how to get one and roughly  how much it costs

It depends how many working keys you have now (by working, they start the car). If you have two then you'll be in for a cheapish job as you'll just need a second hand fob, get a blank key cut and you can do all the coding yourself. (Locking and Starting)

If you have one then it'll be more expensive as you can't code the immobiliser (Starting) yourself, just the Locking.

They weren't fetching good money last time I looked so you may be able to pick one up cheaply - if you aren't worried about it starting the car then I suppose you could just grind off the key and simply use the fob for locking and the existing key for starting...

I guess he means the frequency the remote operates at.  If you have a remote key already it is moulded into the passing on the side where the CE mark is. Mine for example is a 5WK4 790/97/98 with the frequency in every smaller text above that I need a magnifying glass top read but is I believe 433.92MHz. OK I cheated and took a picture on macro then zoomed in on it!
