Default Stiletto for 6 bucks (sort of)!

Ok so I am a former S50 owner who said they would pass on the Stiletto even with my problems and never getting my warrenty claim.

Then I went into BB and checked it out. They had it in stock and didnt have any S50 (surprise). BB guy said product discontinued.

Earlier in the year I had already returned an S50 under 4 year service plan through them and I didnt think you could return it again unless you bought another 4 year service plan. The BB person told me as long as the orginial product is under manufactures warrenty you can return all you want. They didnt make me buy a new one for the Stiletto either and told me my orginial 4 year deal still covers the Stiletto for the remainder.

I had a BB coupon as a reward zone member and a 5 dollar off coupon. Returned the S50 because I still hadnt recieved my warrenty claim for almost 2 months and after my coupon the difference was 6 bucks!. Awesome.

To make the deal even sweeter Sirius was nice enough to do a warrenty swap on my lifetime so I didnt have to pay and didnt count against my swaps!

Havent used it much yet because I am out of town and my car and home kits from crutchfield are en route for the time I get back. For the little time I have used it I dont have many complaints except its hard to figure out when its charging, especially with USB cable.

That should be the worst complaint you have as the Stiletto suffers from none of the issues the S50 had. The interface is great and veryuser friendly and the controls are much faster and much more responsive.

If you live in a rural area, live portable reception will be a problem without the antenna headphones (even then it may be spotty) but the product is truly awesome. You're not gonna miss your S50.
