It looks like it isn't going to stay cheap long...

RIAA gets Sirius?

No onehacksit because no one wants it.

If this was a high demandproduct it would have been hacked long ago.

However, short of hacking it, I have read a very simple way to get around paying.

#1) Get the promotional period for free, or buy the retail version and activate it.

#2) Call to say the radio is broke and you want to cancel. If you buy a unit, only pay monthly plan.

#3) Do not turn radio on for a couple months after cancelling.

The key here is to tell them the radio broke. Do not tell them you just want to cancel, then you'll get them trying to give you a few more months free, plus you will be put on their list that does automatic cancellation signals.

By telling them it's broke, they will assume you don't need to be on the list of monthly/weekly pings to cut you off.

a couple months later when you turn on the radio it will still work. The gamble here is they don't keep trying to ping your receiver to shut it down.

Many poss exist of people who bought an older model on ebay that the owners stopped using years ago and then decided to sell, but never turning it on.Thus the pinging of the unit eventualy stopped as SIRI assumes it is dead after pinging it for so long.

This is not a hack but is a way to get around the automatic kill system SIRI utilizes to kil radios.

GOOD LUCK

You cant use another radio they have there own unique registration number. Mine broke also but I was able to fix it. It was rather easy. You HAVE to use the SAME unit that was once registered with Sirius.

There's a PD auction site that sells XM & Siruis receivers. I've bought and resold a few Delphi units from them (never paid more than $5 per unit). I always hoped I'd come across some units that were still activated, but no such luck.
