Heheh. Customer Service Cube Monkey. :

Best way I found to get past dealing with XM is to get Spotify.
I have 4 or 5 of us on a plan that I pay like 16 bucks a month for.
XM cannot compare to how awesome Spotify is. It truly is wonderful.

I have an Aetna story.
One of my pensions, and it's just an afterthought thing that amounts to a box of smokes a month, they insist everything is faxed.
Because I've climbed all the way up the bucktooth corporate structure a few times, insisting on another option that's more reasonable than the equivalent of smoke signals, they actually capitulated.
I got a phone call from the VP of something and he explained I can now email documents to expedite affairs. He was super thrilled about it.

So I call their girl to get an email address.
She explains that I can email the document, she can send this month's check to my new address, but I need to mail the actual document.
If it doesn't arrive before my next check is cut, they'll just hold them.
My head exploded.
I mailed the document 6 months later cause the kid wanted money.

The reason I go through this?
They have yet to embrace direct deposit.

I tried streaming a podcast on my phone into the truck radio and the buffering drove me nuts. Although the XM signal is occasionally blocked by terrain, it's way ahead of cellular data. I've found plenty of places where my cell reverts to analog on interstate highways. It seems that every time they upgrade the signal standard (3G, 4G, 4GLTE) they start all over at the population centers on the build out and abandon unfinished work, giving a reverse wedding cake profile like a TCA.

Just my $0.02, I yield the soap box.

I wound up going with the 5 months for 33 ish. They agreed to paper bill me for that plan but not for the 60 for a year. I will have to possibly go through the same song and dance right before it ends.

I just go a 60 a year notice, but it does not say for which vehicle?
My wife only uses the radio in her car for a traffic report and that is on the am side.

I have tried my best and then some to get them to paper bill me for that plan and they just won’t bite. They will however let me have a paper bill for the 99 a year plan.

Just got our 2018 letter...'this is not a bill', but a notification that we're going to be getting a bill; $218 invoice coming soon. I'll have to set aside an evening for negotiations. It's in my wife's car and she loves it so, into the fray....

They just emailed me and thanked me for renewing my subscription on what I presume is a vehicle I haven't owned anywhere from 3-10 years now. I don't know which one either. I just know the current one, and the one I just got rid of never had it. So it has to be two or three vehicles ago.
