    Default Question for Sirius Subscribers

    I am currently a Sirius subscriber and when I got sirius I purchased the lifetime sirius subscription package.

    I just purchased a 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid and it comes equipped with XM radio.

    Initially I was told I was SOL as the boxes were not compatable and that I would just have to get a XM subscription rate (later another dealer today me I should be able to just use my XM# and call sirius and have the service transfered over, but I have a hard time beleiving it would be that easy)

    My car had a GPS installed in it yesterday, and the salesman was nice enough to send me my radio ID. I went to the XM website and keyed it in, and when I did so I was told it was a Sirius ID #, and I was taken to the Sirius website where I was told I had to purchase a new plan (1 years - lifetime plan)

    My question is, since I suppsoedly now have Sirius (how is it possible for that to change after a simple install of a GPS navigation system??) is it all possible for me to use my "Sirius box" in my new car and not pay for a new subscription?

    Thanks for your help

    You should call Sirius.

    That is my last resort, but I doubt they would advertise if I could use the same box.

    They are the same company now. They will offer you a deal of some kind, I'm sure.

    I did get the bar today, and it has Sirius radio in it.

    I am not sure if Sirius will let me transfer my subscription, but I will call tomorrow and find out.

    LA, they are the same company, but they still operate as two different companies, and use different hardware sets

    Sirius was great.

    They said they normally do not allow transfers unless a radio is lost, stolen, is destroyed by an act of god, but they gave me a one time pas and just charged my $75 to transfer the account over.

    Great customer service, minus having to run out to my car when it was freezing, which was own fault for being stupid and calling at night
