Subscriptions and Upgrades Clarified

Hi everyone,

There has been some confusion about upgrading and renewing Norton products, and subscription information. This thread is to clear up any confusions regarding these terms. You can also visit THIS SITE for more information.

 
Subscription: This is what you purchase. With the subscription you will be able to run the software and retrieve all updates and upgrades while your subscription is still valid.
 
Update: This is free with a valid subscription. Just like virus definitions that you retrieve through LiveUpdate, the Update is available to all users with a valid subscription HERE.

Here’s an example:


Tony buys Norton Internet Security 2008 on June 1st, 2008. This includes a ONE YEAR SUBSCRIPTION for Norton Internet Security and the Norton Internet Security 2008 software.
 
On December 1st, 2008, Tony decides to upgrade to Norton Internet Security 2009. He downloads the FREE UPGRADE for NIS 2009. Now he has Norton Internet Security 2009 installed, with a subscription that is still valid through June 1st, 2009.
 
Tony realizes that he wants to renew his subscription a bit early on May 1st, 2009. So he purchases a one year subscription to extend his current subscription. Now, he has one month left on his current subscription, plus an additional year he just purchased. His Norton Internet Security subscription is now valid through June 1st, 2009. The one month remaining on his previous subscription is NOT lost; the new year-long subscription is added to the existing remaining subscription.

Hi Tony,

thanks for the information. I think thats clear to understand how subscription and upgrade works.

Re: Subscriptions and Upgrades Clarified

There is another use of the term "Upgrade" that has caused me to give confusing/incorrect information and that is buying a retail package from a store and using "Upgrade Rebates" to reduce the cost.

The media is not specifically "Upgrade" -- as can be the case with operating systems -- but it is common to talk of Upgrading NIS 2007 to NIS 2008 by installing from that purchased NIS 2008 media which again carries with it Subscription rights although, if I understood you recently, these are not added on to any outstanding time on the previous version.

Re: Subscriptions and Upgrades Clarified

You are correct about the first part. Anytime you purchase any Norton product in a store, you really are purchasing a subscription to that product (the activation key). The product just happens to include the most current version of the product, to which the subscription is applied.

However,  to your 2nd part, a new subscription is added to any outstanding time you have for the subscription.

So that applies whether the "new subscription" comes as "part of" the retail purchase or whether it is an on-line subscription?

I think this conflicts with something I asked about recently. I can't search for it now but I'll be back on line later in the evening and will find it.

I believe a retail purchase will start your subscription time over, while a renewal will append the subscription time to your current subscription.

Very good question! In your example, let's say you have a valid subscription for NIS 2007 that expires on August 1st, 2008. If you go here:

http://www.symantec.com/newnis/

Download and install the UPGRADE, and you will then have NIS 2008 on your system. The subscription that was previously applied to NIS 2007 will now be applied to NIS 2008, which expires on August 1st, 2008. When that date comes, you can simply purchase another year (or two or more) of product subscription. When a new version of Norton Internet Security is released, you can go back up to the top and repeat.

I'm glad we're clarifying all these issues. The Subscription-based product purchase is a new concept that probably needed a bit of clarification. Thank you all for your questions!

I'll get some clarification on this point, but I believe renewing always adds the time to your current subscription, while activating a purchased key (from a bought product or the "Buy a key" option) gives you the subscription time starting from the time of installation or activation.Message Edited by Tony_Weiss on 06-12-2008 08:55 PM

Download and install the update from here:

Once installed, it will pickup your existing subscription of 59 days remaining and apply it to the new product.

Re: Subscriptions and Upgrades Clarified

I had purchased NIS2006 retail upgrade version with CD to replace an earlier Norton product. My Norton account showed "protects up to 1 PC". Then, I renewed in 2007 and 2008. Then, I downloaded the free upgrade to NIS2008 from the Norton site. My Norton account still shows "protects up to 1 PC". But if I purchased a retail upgrade version of NIS2008 with CD for same price as renewal, then I would be protected for up to 3 PCs? I only have one PC now, but I am going to buy a laptop and I want to know if I can use my current subscription for both a desktop and a laptop.

If you purchase the retail upgrade version of NIS2008 with CD which states that the license covers 3 PCs, then yes you would be protected for up to 3 PCs.

If you have NIS 2007 and want to upgrade to 2008, do you download the upgrade on top of 2007 or want to delete 2007 and run the Symantec Removal Tool to ensure all is well before upgrading to 2008 What are the correct steps to upgrade to 2008 cleanly and without incurring any issues?

Installing the free update to NIS 2008 with NIS 2007 installed will remove NIS 2007 from your system. This should not cause any errors. Thanks!

Somehow it doesn't seem fair to me that by renewing for $49.99 I am still only protected for 1 PC, but if would have paid the same

$49.99 for a retail upgrade with CD then I would be protected for up to 3 PCs.

Me neither, though I suppose you could always just let your current supscription expire and then purchase a new one that covers 3 PCs (there's a link in Norton Account for me which says add computers).

Of course it would make more sense if the license automatically upgraded to 3 PCs when you renewed.

Re: Subscriptions and Upgrades Clarified

I purchased (and installed) NIS 2007 around 15 to 18 months ago. Obviously the subscription that was included in that package has run out. Would there be anything preventing me from purchasing another copy of the 2007 version and using the key from that, to get another 12 months of updates? Also, should this work with Systemworks, as well?

For that matter, would it be possible to purchase a still older version, and use its key in the same fashion? If so, what is the oldest version from which the key should work, for a new 12 month autoupdate subscription for the 2007 or 2008 products?

Re: Subscriptions and Upgrades Clarified

PMJI but I've been off line for longer than usual, like since last night <g>

Is there some reason why you would not purchase a copy of NIS 2008 which already works better than NIS 2007 and which allows you to get a free update to NIS 2009 when it comes out later this year -- that will take over any unexpired portion of your subscription if I understand correctly the way things work.

Re: Subscriptions and Upgrades Clarified

So...if I have 2007 installed, and do the free update to 2008, I don't still qualify for the free update to 2009? My impression from earlier in this thread was that, when you purchase a retail copy of NIS (and possibly NSW too), you are essentially purchasing a 12 month subscription that just starts when you install the product or use the product key. I thought that Tony_Weiss was saying that the version updates to the software were always free. Is that incorrect, then?

To use Tony's method, here's an example:

Chris buys Norton Internet Security 2007 on March 1st, 2007. This includes a ONE YEAR SUBSCRIPTION for Norton Internet Security and the Norton Internet Security 2007 software. He receives an extra copy of Norton Internet Security 2007 (in a retail box), as a gift, or bundled with some piece of hardware, or a surplus copy from his company upgrading their computers, or some other similar scenario. Rather than try to return it to a store, he sticks it on a shelf and forgets about it.

Now he has a subscription that is valid through March 1, 2008. Additionally, he now has an extra copy of Norton Internet Security 2007, which also includes a ONE YEAR SUBSCRIPTION for Norton Internet Security and the Norton Internet Security 2007 software.

On December 1st, 2007, Chris decides to upgrade to Norton Internet Security 2008. He downloads the FREE UPGRADE for NIS 2008.

Now he has Norton Internet Security 2008 installed, with a subscription that is still valid through March 1st, 2008. Additionally, he still has his extra copy of Norton Internet Security 2007, complete with its ONE YEAR SUBSCRIPTION for Norton Internet Security and the Norton Internet Security 2007 software.

Now...in this case, would he be able to use the key code from his extra copy of NIS 2007 to add a year of free Liveupdate updates on March 1st, 2008, and still be able to download the FREE UPGRADE to NIS 2009, when it comes out? Or is the FREE UPGRADE only good from one version to the next?

If you're talking about the specifics of Norton Internet Security 2009, we do not have that information yet. I don't imagine it will be much different, but I certainly can't guarantee that your scenario will work this way for NIS 2009.

However, yes, you are correct. Barring any drastic change in how FREE UPDATES will work for NIS 2009, this should work as you describe. In this situation, I would recommend using the Activation Key on this program as close to your expiration time as possible. The existing subscription will not be added to the "extra copy" subscription time, it will just be the duration of the "extra copy" subscription time.This situation is also making a few of assumptions, like that "extra copy" has a year subscription on it, and that it hasn't been used on another system during that time. Thanks!

Re: Subscriptions and Upgrades Clarified

That's great to know. My dad gets extra copies of software from his work, either from surplus copies for upgrades, or stuff as giveaways for clients. He had an extra copy of 2007 that he hadn't installed, and didn't have anyone left to give it to (as he has copies of 2008 for giveaways now), so he let me have it. I just wanted to make sure this would work before I tried it.

Thanx a bunch!

Re: Subscriptions and Upgrades Clarified

I think I understand the subscription issue but I would like a clarification on my specific issue.

 

I have 29 days remaining on NIS 2007. Last night I purchased an upgrade to NIS 2008 but have yet to install it. It came with a NEW product key.

 

If I install 2008 now using the NEW product key, I will loose the 29 days remaining on 2007 correct?

 

The reason I went this route was because I was told that a subscription renewal would only be good for one computer, even though my 2007 license is for three users.  What sense does that make? Why can't a loyal Norton customer renew a subscription for all three computers?

 

Following this reasoning, I cannot take advantage of the upgrade to 2009 when it becomes available, because based upon the calendar date of my renewal, if I have 2009 on my machine at the time of renewal next year, I can only renew my subscription (as I assume 2010 will not yet be ready) and then I have the issue of a subscription renewal being only for one computer.

If you install and activate the UPGRADE (which is really a full retail version at a discounted price) of Norton Internet Security 2008, your remaining existing subscription time is not added to the subscription time give by the NEW activation key. So for your first question, you are correct.

For the second, however, you have been given some incorrect information. When you renew your subscription to a product, the "can be installed on up to 3 PCs" license is carried over as well. Likewise, if you have a product that "can be installed on one PC", this too is carried over when you renew. The only change the renewal makes is to extend the subscription period; it will NOT change a license from a "3 PC" to a "1 PC", or the other way around. We agree - a loyal customer should be able to renew their existing subscription. I apologize for the confusion.

Please send me a Private Message (click the  in the upper right of the Forum) with the information of the Symantec Employee who provided this information to you. I want to be sure that we all understand the process. Thanks!

Re: Subscriptions and Upgrades Clarified

The Private message should be on it's way to you.  So what options do I have now?

Can I use the 2008 upgrade from the Norton website and then use the new key when the subscription expires, or should I download the purchased product and enter the 2007 old key?

If the former, what happens to my account if I never download the purchased product from the email link?

Oh, and why is the website upgrade for 2008 a larger files size than what the email purchased product indicates?

I think by "2008 upgrade from the Norton website" you mean the FREE UPDATE to NIS 2008 that is available to all NIS users with a current NIS subscription. Is this correct? Then yes, you can install the free update to NIS 2008, which when installed will pickup your current subscription for the remaining days. This is the best way to go.

Your account and download will be waiting for you. See this site for information on retrieving that download info. Be sure to keep your Order Number information to retrieve the product at the later date.

What is the download size difference is listed on both the site and the email? Thanks!

You have answered my questions - Thanks.

I assume that if I download 2008 for the remaining days, I can use my new product key to activate the subscription renewal when that date comes due.

The file size difference is as follows: 2008 FREE UPDATE = 68MB    File size for purchased 2008 upgrade as indicated in the email order confirmation = 61MB  (but has net yet been downloaded).

Re: Subscriptions and Upgrades Clarified

Hello,

Just today, I had bought a  3-pc license of norton internet security 2007. (I have not still installed it!) And when browsing the norton community, i happened to come by this thread which i found very interesting.

Now i have 2 doubts:

1. If i install it, can i upgrade it to NIS 2009 for free when it is out? (I will have my subscription valid till next Jul 2009, right?)

2. And in case, after installing on 3 pcs (for which i have a license) and in  the future, if i happen to format my laptop, can i reinstall my NIS 2007 on it without any problems of having to buy a new key? (Do i have to deactivate one license in my account and then reinstall it or do i have to contact the customer care about it?)

Sorry if i am confusing all you guys with my questions. I didnt know how to frame them in a simple manner.

Re: Subscriptions and Upgrades Clarified

Why did you buy a licence for NIS 2007 when NIS 2008 is the current version (and is much better)?

However I understand that if you install it you can upgrade on line to NIS2008 without charge as long as your subscription is not expired and also that you will be able to upgrade on line to NIS 2009 when released, again if you subscription has not expired.

In my experience when you reinstall NIS from a downloaded file, or from media, if you have created a Norton Account you will get a screen that gives choices one of which is Use an existing key and if you select that it goes off and checks to see what you have in your Norton Account and uses that if the subscription is still valid.

But make sure you copy of NIS to use for installing is not stored on the laptop or any other computer ....
