    ok first you just need to go to the website on you computer and sign up for a free seven day trial.. all you have to enter is a name(which can be fake) and an email adress..

    so i have done this 2 times now.. ( i have a few email adresses )

    i signed up for 7days with one email..it expired and then i used a different email and its working all over again..

    and it asks for your phone number But you dont have to put it in .. its not a required field

    you can afford a $30 data plan but not $3 for sirius?

    go ahead everyone do this so they will get rid of the trial period

    If I were not a subscriber of XM already I would not mind paying $3.00 a month. However, since I am an XM subscriber it is crock that they would charge subscribers an additional $3.00 to bring their already super compressed audio service to our portable devices.

    As for the OP ... eventually it'll get tiresome having to re-register each time.

    Thanks tapout. I appreciated it. Tired of all these companies squeezing every little penny out of you. They said the price will go down when they merged not go up. Screw sirius xm.

    they could have charged for the app or maybe they just give everything away for free and go bankrupt....

    for a company already in finaancial trouble they had to come up with something to boost them up i dont think they are making a killing with the $3 thing but at least more people will start to use them

    It isn't $3 if you don't already have an account with Sirius/XM. If you have an account, then it is $3 extra to add it. If you don't then it is $13.

    if only this app was able to run in the background like the "iPod", then i would see my self paying the $3/month.

    But right now, i don't think i will even think about paying anyone anything!

    You are a thief. Don't try to rationalize it. You are stealing. In life, sometimes there are things you can't afford. If so, you go without. You don't steal it and make excuses about how if only it was priced right you wouldn't have to steal it.

    Thief.

    As an XM subscriber with 2 radio's for almost 5 years, I can tell you that the internet service was free to subscribers up until March of this year. It's complete BS if you ask me. Further, more than half of the channels now have commercials. Some in excess of 10 mins of commercials at a time. It is really annoying and I am canceling my service. Why do I pay almost $300 a year to listen to commercials? If I want to listen to commercials I will listen to terrestrial radio for free.
    IMO, skip this app and the monthly charge.

    Have fun calling and canceling. I did that a month or so ago and the guy spent 15 minutes trying to convince me to not leave. It was pathetic, I kept saying no but they kept pushing.

    Maybe if everyone does this, then satellite radio will continue down the road to bankruptcy and then nobody will be able to use it when they stop broadcasting.

    The idea that it's some big company gouging people and making obscene profits is absurd.

    whats absurd is that you think that 20-30 who do this will bankrupt a major company..

    its really not a big deal.. now if the hundreds of thousands of subscribers do this. and every single person who has an iphone does this then maybe .. but to suggest that a few dozen people on a messageboard will cause a multimillion dollar company to go down the drain is a bit unrealistic..

    I did sign up for trial and used it all day today. Sounds like someone's farting. terrible sound quality. I listen to slacker/lastfm all the time in the car. I am used to good quality sound.

    I wouldn't even pay a cent to their service, am/fm quality broadcast.
    Also I used to be a fan of XM BPM, what the fk happened to that channel ?
    Lame LAMMMMME

    there are so many FREE/ better quality alternatives out there. Not worth a penny in my book....
    bah!

    I wish their internet service was not so crazy expensive....

    Does anyone know if you can be listening on your car installed unit and the internet at the same time.....so two people in the family using the subscription at once?

    You are paying $300?!?!? I'm on my 3rd year at $77. I wouldn't pay any more than that, especially with iPod integration in cars getting better all the time.

    And yeah, I used to listen to XM on the computer at work until March when they started charging. Pandora does the same thing for free, so forget that.
