$12.95 per month is a little expensive but if you use it on a daily basis, i'm sure its well worth it.


*note* The title was suppose to read "sirius" sorry trying to figure out how to edit that.

It's all relative. Granted, the online only version is 2.99 a month for streaming, but they don't anticipate you to be traveling with it. The car/home units that hook up to your stereo cost 15 a month. So, what's to stop somebody from turning off service on their car/home unit and going with a cheaper route such as the cell phone? When you think about it, 12.95 is still pretty decent.

One draw back to going through your phone only is that you loose nationwide coverage. I can be out in the middle of nowhere and still listen to Opie and Anthony even when I don't have cell phone coverage.

With the cell phone, I can go through tunnels, under bridges, and into the mountains and not drop my signal due to line of site problems. ;) One man's trash. . .

Ps. Not to mention into the city. I live in Seattle and when I'm driving downtown, my Sirius signal always fades in and out as I pass buildings and such. All places I listed (tunnels, bridges, and in downtown Seattle) I get 3-4 bars of 3G signal on my cell phone, while driving on the highway 'I-90' through the mountains I do flux between 2-3 bars of 3G and occasional flip to 3-4 bars of edge. . . but realistically, I can still stream music with edge.

It depends on where you go I suppose. I do a lot of outdoor recreation in the middle of nowhere and there are time I can't get any signal on my phone but I always have XM.

Completely agree. Some options might not be available to everyone. . . like living in an apartment facing the North-East sky when you want Dish Network. I had to wait out my lease (a year) before I could move into a place that faced South-West. lol

Pandora usually stops abruptly whenever I enter a tunnel... I hate that.
