Well finally got all mine today. I was thinking that perhaps you all were kidding about the whole username password being printed on this thing, but I open it up and sure enough, there for anyone to see. Whoever made this braindead decision should be fired. There really isn't any excuse for it. But I love the note below it. "Please take appropriate care in protecting this information." Seems they should have followed their own advice.

They sent me 4 today, 1 for each account I guess. Seems like a waste to me since unlike past guides this one is too big to carry in the car. They did a good job getting the word out on the changes.

I would really like to have a smaller one like I already have, its about 4 inches wide and 10 inches long and laminated.

I emailed them about that seen as I deal with IT security all day long and all I got was the link to change my password. No apologies or anything, just the link.

lame...

I got three of them today, but like TX WJ, I would have much preferred a smaller one that would have been more easily used in my truck. This thing is to darn big. It is nice though and very clearly lets everyone know what is coming, what is going, those channels being renamed etc.

I do agree that the username and password being inside was absolutely the lamest thing I have ever seen. So much for security. I think the account password can be changed once you log in. I haven't tried to change mine, but I certainly plan on it now. Though it doesn't appear that anyone opened any of mine but you never know. Sirius truly has ZERO sense of security... I mean ZERO!!!

UPDATE:

YES, I was able to log right into my account and change the password. You can even change your username. So those concerned by this lame breach of security, may want to log in and change their security info.

Have not received my 2 yet- but last week went to the website, used existing password and changed my password.

Received mine today. It's nice but I honestly prefer the PDF version.

Sounds like that would probably be the logical thing to do.

Me neither, but I am used to getting things late. I have lousy mail where I live. I can't tell you how many magazine I subscribe to that just never showed up, or arrive weeks late... Maybe it will get here today!

I called them to complain about the Username and password issue. I was told that they was supposed to be mailed out in a envelope. I think they know the messed up and came up with that to cover ther butts. When i recieved mine today and saw that, I went right to the site and changed my username and password.

Received mine on Monday. I thought the flyer was nicely done. Yes, they should have left off the username and password.
