    My App became active when I received the VIN number (actually, the App was how I knew that I had a VIN number).

    It is said that the app originally came active when the car was built, but they got sick of people honking horns and such remotely so they switched to after delivery.

    In may 2013 I seem to recall the app connecting as this was your first indication of your VIN, but that remote access was disabled from the car.

    Yep, I have a similar recollection. The car showed up in the app as being "in existence" (your VIN was tied to your account) but you had no access to control anything. I don't remember exactly when that happened in the process but it was well before it was delivered to me.
