    I had the Sportster, Stilleto and online. The sportster died, the stiletto is almost dead and now mostly listen online. What should the cost be for that? They want to charge $159.99 for the year for the stiletto and computer.

    Better than what they want me to pay. I have 3 radios that don't work anymore. They want me to pay $90. A month!

    My advise,cut your losses and take that money and buy an outfit or some shoes.

    That's what I would like to do, but customer service says the computer is tied to the radio. Do you know if this is true and can I just get the online subscription and how much should that be?

    You should be able to get just the online subscription and I believe that costs around $35-$40 for the year. Ask to speak to a supervisor next time you call and they will transfer you to someone in the USA.

    Threaten to cancel all together and you'd be amazed what they start offering

    You can cancel your radios and just get the Internet sub for 14.49*/month that is not "tied to the radio". This also includes O&A and the other BOXM channels.

    I went through this recently. I had to cancel one radio, but it was connected to my internet account, so I had to go to a supervisor to turn off the one radio and switch the account to my car radio. The billing is very weird.

    To get the best deal, I always called and told them I don't use it so please shut down the account. They'll offer 3 free months. Say no thanks. Wait for the third offer, which should be a total of $9 per month.

    Play hardball. They will cave. I promise.

    The thing is sometimes they don't even bother to turn off your radio. I canceled, but my radio kept right on working for a few more months until it broke....
