Erik, I feel the same way about the nickel and diming. I have one music station that I like, but am on the brink of cancelling. Norm
This here is why I am ambivalent to get a lifetime sub:
9. Lifetime Subscription Plan: A "Lifetime Subscription" is one that continues for the life of the Receiver equipment. A Lifetime Subscription is not transferable if it is associated with a Receiver installed by an automaker or an automotive dealer in a vehicle, except in the event the original Receiver associated with that Lifetime Subscription is stolen, accidentally damaged or if, in the sole discretion of SIRIUS XM Radio Inc., it is defective. A Lifetime Subscription associated with a home, portable, or dock & play Receiver is transferable from one Receiver to another Receiver, up to a maximum of three (3) times. Each permitted transfer of a Subscription is subject to a transfer fee. If you transfer a
Lifetime Subscription from one Receiver to another or from one person to another, you will be charged a transfer fee. The current transfer fee is set forth in these Terms. No transfer fee will be charged for the transfer of a Lifetime Subscription associated with a Receiver installed by an automaker or an automotive dealer if, in the sole discretion of SIRIUS XM Radio Inc., the Receiver is defective. Lifetime Subscriptions are nonrefundable. You may cancel a Lifetime Subscription but if you cancel during the first year of service you will be charged a cancellation fee set forth in these Terms.
XM has gone down the tubes since Sirius took over: those ridiculous two-city traffic reports, too many individual performer channels, standards channel pretty much hijacked by Sinatra music, Oprah channel over Take Five, Cosmo (ick) channel, etc. At least they left the 40s channel and Escape alone.
I tried emailing them abt three weeks ago, and got no response. I'm hoping a third party dev tackles it. I would pay for this app.
Current Phone: Galaxy Nexus; running smooth and with no complaints, thanks to dev Peter Alfonso. Keep up the good work.
Previous Phone: Droid (OG); unceremoniously dumped into the nightstand (I feel as if I should place it onto a wooden barge, set it afloat and light her on fire...).
Phone Before That: Doesn't matter.
I've had the XM lifetime since it came out....I've gotten my money out of it...It has gone down but still serves it's purpose for me...
A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.
