  1. For the sake of my sanity I really wish that it would end today. ? I don't know how many more days I can go with 4 hours of sleep. While staying in my pajamas is nice I would really like to take a shower and not feel anxious that I'm missing my opportunity to try and win. Not to mention I literally have gotten NOTHING done this entire week. My list of errands and things to do is now a mile long! When does this thing end?? I can't find the rules online.
  2. I feel like they played it the second time so early today that they will play it again later this afternoon. I probably should get a nap in as I'm running on fumes.
  3. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! That's amazing!! You will have a fantastic evening with the boys I'm sure. If you really cannot find someone who wants to go with you (LOL) I would happily pay you $1,000 to be your date for the evening!! ?
  4. OMG...can I catch a break??? I woke up at exactly 5am MST to start listening again. 5 minutes AFTER they played it. ?? My U2 luck is horrible!!!!
  5. A couple of the times listed on my call log are from when I had heard it and called are a bit different than what you have. Mon 6/4 - I can tell you that on Monday they played it at 4:48am (on the app) MST. So 6:48am EST. I had been listening all through the night and didn't sleep and just as I was about to go to bed it came on the app. Tue 6/5 - They definitely played it at 3:58pm MST on the app. (5:58pm EST) because I walked out of the grocery store angry that I hadn't gotten back in my car quick enough to have called when it first came on the radio. So did they play it 3 times also on Tuesday or is the time zone just off on what you have listed?
  6. Like I said earlier this morning at 6:20AM. The story of my life is missing things by seconds to minutes. I have been sitting here A L L D A Y L O N G since 6:20AM this morning with my phone in my hand and my Sirius receiver on. When one song ends I grab my phone and get ready to press the call button. I've been so tired today as I had little sleep last night. Of course what happens just now??? I accidentally dosed off for not even 5 minutes and when I woke up I heard Angel of Harlem in my earbud from Sydney playing. I called and called and called and called and called and called and then called some more. NOTHING! I really do have the worst luck when it comes to anything U2 related. In fact in the few vehicle accidents that I have gotten into over the years (none my fault) I had U2 playing in the car or in my headphones. One might think I play their music all of the time so that explains why U2 would be on when getting into an accident. No, actually in all of those instances I hadn't played U2 in about 2 weeks or so. So now when I ride my scooter U2 is not allowed to be played. Wrecking on my scooter while listening to Dirty Day wasn't fun nor were the road rash scars that came after.
  7. I have absolutely no idea how you might get that impression or come to that conclusion ? I did get this at Best Buy. They were out of the version that had the receiver and the home kit bundled together so I bought the version that had the receiver bundled with the vehicle kit and then bought the home kit separate. I figured it should work no problem and it did. I am already a Sirius subscriber so I called them and told them I simply wanted to test out having Sirius in my home and asked them if they could give me a 2 week trial and they did.
  8. So I decided to take Sirius' advice. Rather than sit in my car for the entire day in 95 degree weather I opted to purchase a satellite radio receiver for my home. The satellite home receiver IS in sync with my car while the app is still is delayed by 2min 38 seconds. (see photo) Finally solved the lag issue. Crossing my fingers that this works. I woke up round 6:20am MST today and looked at the receiver and they literally were playing AOH at that exact moment. (That really is the story of my life...just missing the moment by seconds to minutes) I tried calling in several times but didn't get through. I was told at the store that I have 2 weeks to return it if it doesn't work out.
  9. When I've called I get it to usually ring several times but it just rings and rings and rings and eventually the line goes dead. Almost as if someone picked up the phone and hung it up quickly. I do also sometimes get the long silence, recorded voice, etc...
  10. Did they just play Angel of Harlem about 10 minutes ago? I am trying to figure out a problem with my phone. Thanks.
  11. It's playing now on the app but of course with the delay there's no way.
  12. ...especially when they are giving away less than 10% of the total venue capacity to actual fans. LOL
  13. That's actually genius! LOL! I love it. If I had one I would totally do the same! From what I understand the person who won via the app did so on the first day of the broadcast and was either the 1st or 2nd winner in this promotion. I didn't even know there was a contest until Sunday. I hadn't heard the ad up until that point. I think many people were unaware and therefore the mass of people were not calling in at that moment, which is why the 2 min 38 second lag in the app probably wasn't that much of an issue. I absolutely think it's an issue now. Within 3 seconds of the first note of AOH coming on the app earlier today my phone was ringing and the contest was over. I was told by Sirius that if I wanted to win I should have bought a satellite radio receiver for my home. Oh...okay...let me get on that.
  14. The was the fine print on the bottom of my SiriusXM subscriber email to enter. They said 10.5 million. From the sound of it there seemed to have been several email broadcasts to millions of subscribers. It says "in the new york area" here but I am in Colorado. Clearly not anywhere near new york, but I would be if I had a ticket " *ODDS: This exclusive opportunity for this block of tickets is being promoted by only one email broadcast to approximately 10,545,000 subscribers in the New York area. Odds of winning depend upon the number of entries received in response to this email by the end of the Entry Period. If you are a winner, your RSVP will be confirmed and you will be sent a follow-up email with exact event details. "
