Before the merger if an XM radio was reported stolen it could NEVER be reactivated again except by the original owner. A Sirius radio reported stolen would be reactivated. Now that Sirius is running things if my XM radio is stolen will it be reactivated? I can't get a straight answer from CS.

My guess is that the Sirius policy will win out. I think they wanted to cater to all the subs who bought equipment off e-bay.

Well the concern to me is how do they know for sure a radio is stolen. Just taking someone's word for it. I mean say your wife hates that you listen to Howard Stern and is sick of her husband listening to him. Can't she just call up Sirius and give them the SID and then she get's her way and the radio becomes useless.

No you would just call them back and give them the proper info and reactivate it besides, my wife HATES Howard, if she wanted to do that she wouldn't know how to get to the radio ID. Plus I know with XM, ONLY the owner can request deactivation. I would think the same goes for Sirius.
