I think thats crap... Like seriously why wouldn't they let the "911" feature be used regardless if there is a subscription or not? I just think it would be a good thing :read:

The 911 feature is the only thing that will work without subscribing to onstar. Just like a deactivated cell phone.

the Emerg. works its a law and it is free but if you want directions or to use the sat. phone its a monthly charge I think I am paying 45 a month for the Directions and ulimited SAT. phone. the cool thing about On-star is they can tell where you are at if you need help in an Emerg. just like this role over and as for the SAT. phone I get reception every where i go

What time was that at? I went through there at about 3pm... Hear about that wreck a couple days ago where the woman ran into the rear of a broke down semi without ever slowing down on 99 near California Ave.? Killed her 3 kids...
