I seem to to recall a similar post a while back about On-Star doing things
that just aren't kosher. The simple answer is that although the On-Star
hardware is capable of doing this, the software doesn't allow it. There is
simply too much liability involved. On-Star doesn't "phone home" regardless
of whether or not you are a subscriber unless the airbags deploy or, in some
configurations, a "near deployment" event occurs.
