We had stopped listening a year and half prior. And yes, we had a difficult time communicating with them. Answering a phone is the first impression when not facr to face. And, you know what they say about first impressions. Speaking from a business owner point of view – “the customer is always right” and communication are things of the past.

I guess than can renew your service without telling you. Its just funny they charge the people who don’t want to be charged and don’t charge the people who want to. They owe a billion dollars for a reason.

But if you do keep the service, what changes would you like to see?

I’ve been a subscriber of XM for three years now and they haven’t charged me the last two years in a row. I get the letter saying they’re going to bill my account. I wait and I wait be they never charge my card. Not that I mind getting free service. But I really won’t like it when they finally get their heads out of their butts and all of the sudden charge me for like three years in one pop. I’d call them but if anyone has ever called their customer service they know that it is some of the worst service out there. I think they contract the service portion of their company to India or something. You call and talk to them and you have to ask them to repeat everything 10 times because you can’t understand a dang work they are saying. If I had make a comment on the new content they’ve switched to I’d say it sucks. I am seriously considering canceling my subscription as well.
