New Car XM
Posted 24 November 2008 - 10:08 AM
When she asked about a lifetime sub for the XM she was told the transfer only applied to portable units--buy a new car in 4 years with XM and you have to get a new full priced subscription. Has anyone else tried this.
I don't understand why a Sirius/XM company doesn't operate seamlessly. This is just as weird as Sprint/Nextel merger where they still don't have a seamless operation and it has been a few years.
Seems like you should be able to lifetime a system and add units no matter which brand of satellite receiver you have. Makes me think I should sell my SIRI stock except I can't afford to take the loss. Really poor thinking at the marketing level.

Mergers are often only an external facade. The internals are often still seperate companies.
Stinks, but it is the way it is.
