KRAZYK will become famous soon enough
Default Got my system installed + Sirius story

Installed my system a few days ago (still waiting on a box for my sub) and so far I am very happy with my work and the system.

Pioneer AVH-P3200DVD
Sirius tuner + Pioneer kit
Polk Audio DB351 for the dash speakers
Rockford Fosgate R1693 for the door speakers
Kicker ZX700.5 amp
Kicker L7 waiting on box..

Before I started ANY of the project I wanted to find out if my "Trial Year" of Sirius would transfer to a new HU (because I still have ~9 months left on it).
First time I called I was told NO, it can not be transferred. When I got my Sirius paperwork in the mail a week later I was reading through it and noticed it said in fine print "Any subscription can be transferred but there will be a fee of blah blah blah".
So I called back ready to put up an argument that ANY subscription can be transferred. I got a girl on the line and she said "Yeah you can transfer it to a new head unit, no problem.. there wont even be a fee because its on the trial year." I didn't even have to put up a fight, she was very helpful .
So I go ahead and order all my parts and get it installed last weekend. Had to buy the Sirius kit for $100 but hey Im getting a free year of it so why not? Plus I have found some good music on there.
Call them with my new sirius ID for the transfer and I am told "Sorry but we cant do that, its against the agreement for Sirius and Chrysler. BUT we can give you 5 months for $20 or a year for $75."
I called 3 different days and got told the same thing.. each time I asked for a manager after the first person told me NO and the managers would offer me different packages for a discount.
The 3rd time I was on hold for a manager I got disconnected so I called back and got the girl that told me it was gonna be NO PROBLEM. I told her the story and she said "no problem!" ..
All I had to pay was the $15 transfer fee
So after 4 different people told me it was impossible and that option was not even in the system, once I got a hold of the right person it only took 2 or 3 mins.

When your free year is up, think wisely when you renew your subscription
the longer the length of the renewal, the cheaper it is per month
they have 4 different renewal options, as of February 2010
1 year... $12.99 monthly
2 year ..$11.99 monthly
3 year .. $10.99 monthly
Lifetime package price .... also extra charges of $75 if you switch radios, which they allow you do 3 times

the operator that i talked to, wanted me to buy the 1 year plan, i had to ask her for a longer period several times, i even asked her what country she was in. then she must have found out that there was more then 1 page in her booklet, because she finally said that they did have 2 & 3 year plans.
i still think she was from a out sourced country

the telephone lines in India are somewhat messy, we are lucky that when you call SEARS, you don't get an support operator from HONDA

a two-year multiple subscription plan, you receive three months free and a three-year plan gives you five months free. By choosing a longer term plan, you'll save even more than 30% off our $12.95 monthly base rate.

Good to know GT!

ya I asked about the lifetime plan.. they said it was like $700 but it can be broken up into 5 payments.. But we'll see how much I use the sat radio in 9 months when its time to re-up.

Has anyone done this recently? I tried to do the same thing and was told 3 times by Sirius that the dealer has to make the transfer.

when you call, ask them to transfer the call to Sirius Corporate Office,
it is here in the USA, not India

By the way, i get email all the time from Sirius, they are offering a special 6 months plan, it is about 1/2 the normal cost
I signed up for email specials that come up

some specials jump up after 6 months
when you tell them to cancel the order just before 6 months is up, sometimes they give you another good deal

Just have to keep on it.. like GT said maybe try to get someone in the US who knows what they are talking about. Dealer shouldn't have anything to do with it - as long as you know how to find your Sirius ID number.. thats all the dealer would do.
