I received a mailer telling me that one of my Fords is eligible for a free preview starting on the date above. Curiously the other Ford we own is not. If interested you may want to contact them---or just tune in to see (or I guess hear).
The satellite signal might not hit a car in a garage or under some other obstruction and don't get turned off when service cancelled...the cancel signal is only for a few minutes and very often misses a radio..it would still be usable once it's back in satellite range..soooo..they put all radios in free preview mode..and send a turn off signal to all unsubscribed radios every once in a whileHuh?
Radio has to be on..really doesn't apply to car radios..just the ones that are like adaptors or used in housesIf the unsubscribed radios are still on couldn't they just send out such a kill signal periodically without authorizing all of us?
Also note that for some reason not all radios are eligible for this. I have another vehicle that is not eligible.
Got in my car this AM and there was no free preview. I called the number on the screen and they insisted there was no free preview and also insisted my 2012 Ford has an XM radio not Sirius and refused to tell me how to get the radio ID on a Sirius radio. Later in the day t was on.
This underscores though the frustration in working with this company on account related matters.
I just cancelled my service and it wasn't really a hard time. I just told the Indian call center representative that my wife is now driving that car and doesn't listen and I have no need for it any longer. They try to offer special deals be but just say no thanks and that was it. Got an email confirming my cancellation.I just keep throwing out the constant mailings and had forgotten, but don't want to subscribe, even at reduced rates, after all the horror stories of how much you go through to shut off service when it ends! My biggest complaint was the awful quality of the sound...don't know if any of it ever got fixed, but "bad mp3" is the phrase that comes to mind on my radio, at least....from when I was subscribed with the new (used) car.
