Good to hear all these wonderful horror stories lol. The reason I ask is because my friend has tried to cancel and xm literally told him they can't do that, only put his account on hold so they can bother him a few months down the line. So until the end of time he will receive occasional calls from xm. And you can't just block numbers anymore because they'll just call you from another one.

First thing I would do is report the card you used to pay lost / stolen. They will send you a new one with a new expiration date / code. I don't know if they are storing your info but it is probably better safe than sorry.

After that any time they call don't let them even start their pitch. The moment you know it is Sirius cut them off and tell them to put you on their do not call list and that you will be reporting any future attempts to contact you will be reported to the FCC. They will need to read some legal shit and confirm which numbers are not to be contacted. It might help to tell them you are recording the call (even if you aren't) so that they believe you actually have evidence that you should be on the do not call list.

Also you can try this, not sure if they actually care about it though -
Go to siriusxm.com / Manage My Account / Login or Register

Click on the My Account Info tab, then the Communication Preferences tab, then under "Phone" choose "Do Not Call

No really sure what is the hassle on this SiriusXM subscription issue. At least here in Canada honestly they have a very decent costumer service. Wherever you want to do: activate, cancel add internet radio they do with no problem. They ask if you want to take advantage of some offer? yes, but as simple as you say "no" that's enough.


I like to clarify that I don't work for SiriusXM by any means, but I have been subscribed to this service since start in Canada (back then known as a Sirius only) back in 2005 in all the cars that I have it on all this time...I'm older than most of you guys, so I like enjoy some hard rock from 70's, 80's and begin of 90's so satellite radio is a really good option for me.


I always have use this "aftermarket" receivers that you can install on the vehicle, but my point is that in all this years I never have any "terror story" to tell... Maybe I just get lucky.

I don't think you understand what everyone's issues are. Of course you haven't had any issues, you have been using it since 2005. Why would they harass a paying customer with sales calls? They aren't calling you 3x a day at work regardless of how many times you tell them to take your name and number off their list. It sounds like you didn't get lucky, you just pay them.

They are a horrible company to deal with, that doesn't mean their product is horrible though.
