Warning: RE Lifetime Subscriptions and XM/Sirius integration
Be warned: Lifetime subscription apparently only means for the lifetime of your radio. My Sportster 4 died after only 1 year (just long enough to be out of service). When I finally got around to buying another radio (an Onyx) I found out
1) I couldn't add it to my existing subscription because it was XM. Apparently, even though the two companies have merged, their business processes have not.
2) They weren't even willing to transfer my Sirius subscription to XM, so i could use the Onyx.
3) They were willing to give me a 70 percent discount on the ugly, low-end Stratus 6, but not on any of the better radios. Even if they were, they now say there will be a $75 fee to transfer the subscription.
4) Despite asking to speak with a manager several times, I was merely passed around from CR to CR.
5) I'm stuck with a $500 lifetime subscription on a dead radio, and Sirius XM couldn't care less.
Exchange of service if at all possible
I have a lifetime on Sirius which I would consider exchanging for a new SiriusXM unit (XMP3i XM Receiver) if I could infact use it on this unit. In fact I have 3 lifetime subscriptions which I purchase way back when they first went into service. This one is in my 2006 GMC RV tow vehicle. I don't really like the one built into the vehicle as I can't move it from vehicle to vehicle. I drive many different vehicles in my work and most rental companies want to charge more daily fees if they have to activate SAT radio service.
