When I got home, and plugged it in, it received all the channels as well.
But I am a 1-year prepaid customer anyway, so I decided to just do THE SWAP anyways, even though the unit was already receiving programming anyhow. Felt like it was bad idea to be receiving it, even though I never set it up nder my account yet
Even though your unit has been getting service for 4 months, that is still considered THEFT OF SERVICE. And if you get caught, be aware that there are consequences.
I don't know if you are a prepaid customer, month to month, or lifetime.
But if you just bought the unit, and never contacted Sirius to set up an account, and the unit has been working for 4 months, you are stealing service, and may eventually get caught.
Especially of the unit was a returned one from another customer, and they complain to their Credit Card company that they are being charged for Sirius even thought they returned the unit.
Hope you paid cash(I can't remember if the CC employee asked me for my name, or phone number before ringing me up), and not by Credit Card, where they will Definitely trace it too you
Theft talk is not condoned here, that is for sure.
Sorry to sounD like I am on a Soapbox here, but just too make you aware of what you are actually doing.
