I just can't believe they get away with this. Not only that, but the tactic of leaving you on hold for 45 minutes! Each time I called ... including the transfer from the credit card company ... involved 45 minutes total time on the phone with these *censored*. I hope they go bankrupt!

That wouldn't surprise me at all, although my FM reception seems to be fine. I've had satellite since the truck was new, so never really spent all that much time on FM. After it's gone, I probably still won't. I'll just hook up an ipod or Zune with a month's worth of songs -- won't hear the same one twice in a month, so it'll be better than satellite!

I've received both email and snail mail reminders to re-up. I have 3 subscription: a portable unit, internet access and my 09 F-150. Here's what I was offered for the Everything package:
3 yr. @ 12.95/mo. + 9 months free. Tax and fees total = $ 330.31
2 yr. ... tax and fee total = $ 227.36
Lifetime $ 499, tax and fee total = $ 616.85 5 installments of $123.37 available.
I asked when my truck's sub ran out and she said it's dead now. I was just lising to it a few hours ago. Hmmm. When I got the truck 10/09 the Sirius radio was on. I received a free six month offer if I called before the first six month ran out. I called in Feb. 2010 and they didn't even have the unit listed as turned on. I busted myself! .... Long story short, I hung up. I'll see what happens, maybe it will just keep on working. I did tell them I've heard others quoted $399 lifetime and all she did was stammer.
Sounds like you were offered a much better deal than I was! That lifetime fee was only 3 years for me -- that's why I told them to ram it. Good deal on the free satellite thought! If I were you I wouldn't call them again.
Don't feel bad ripping them off, because they WILL do it to you, when given the opportunity.

I think I was growling more than whining ...
Your right -- gotta stay on top of everything nowadays. Verizon is famous for trying to rip you off a few cents here, a dollar there -- if you don't look closely at your bill, you'll get porked! Same with the state of MA's Fastlane passes (electronic tolls - no stopping). Every so often I'll get whacked 100x the toll I should have been charged. You call them up & they take it right off, but you have to be alert -- & read your statements! Everyone is a crooked son of a bitch these days.
