Life without Starlink

Recommended Posts

I got a free trial period of Starlink. I can't find much in it that I care about. I sure don't

want to listen to Howard Stern. But, since it came included, I was just wondering what is left if

I turn it off. Do I still have a FM/AM radio. Can I still play CD's? There is nothing in the apps

that I need or want. Does my hands free phone still work? Starlink lists 8 ways to make a phone

call. Who needs it? It's confusing. I wonder how many cars run off the road trying to make a call

with Starlink? Is there a way to just turn it off for a while so I can see the difference? Do I really

need a program that take 224 pages to explain how to use it?

all the subscription covers is the on call services and satellite radio. everything else will work fine.

Actually starlink doesn't cover XM radio (satellite radio)

It does the call center for roadside and emergency. It also does some other minor stuff but that's the jist.


XM is a separate company and has a separate subscription.


As for what you'll lose. Nothing. Just the call center service
