Default Still Waiting

Got My replacment 11/21 sent back my old unit 11/22, called to get a replacement for my replacement on 11/21 which worked for approx. 4 hrs and then nolonger would recieve channel information. Got the 7-10 days still no unit, as of 12/5 called again. Got the "We will ship it out overnight", please call us on Monday if you haven't recieved it by then line.
Overnight from Tuesday evening, I would think Thursday at the latest.
Canceled my subscription back when my replacement died after waiting 5+ months to get it, so I will probably never see a unit again. If I do this one is sure to see the return line of Best Buy for a store credit in the X-mas return line.

Its actually become enjoyable to call, and speak with a CSR and listen to them backpedel on everything they say when you've heard it all before for the last 1/2 of a year.

Default Monday and.....

Nothing, wow I never saw this coming. Called CSR spoke with Amanda, who assured me that it shipped today "overnight" yet again, and that I should have it Tuesday for sure. I let her know that I would be calling to find out what tomorrows line would be when it doesn't show up again.

Default Surprise surprise.

Well, it actually showed up not overnight but at least it showed up. Now I just hope that it works longer than 2 hrs like the previous replacement. This one showed up with I bunch of extras unlike the last one. In the box along with the S50 was an FM modulator, a cassette adapter, some line-in cables and a pre paid install card.
This I'm assuming is all due to the complaints, about the now poor Fm signal due to the "high tech plug" in the back of the car dock that took 6 months to come up with.

Since there have been no changes made to the flaw in the docking system and how it secures the S50 to the docks my guess is we will all be having problems with these units as well, so get out your rubber bands so you can travel a bumpy road and keep the thing frm shutting off.
I know all of my problems could be resolved by manipulating the thing just right in the car or home dock to get it to work for a while. Maybe I'm the exception to the rule, becouse nothing is really wrong with these things its all in your head.
