Default Honda Radio un-lock code?

I just had to share! I have a 2006 Honda Civic and recently my battery died so I lost all power. After connecting my battery, I noticed that my factory radio would not play and all is said was "CODE" and then "err1"After doing my research on the internet I realized that Honda radios have an anti-theft feature that will not allow your radio to play unless you enter the correct code. The code was given to the ORIGINAL owner so if that's not you, then more than likely you do not have it. Some posts said that the code may be on a sticker under ur ashtray, in your glove box, side of your console, etc....mine was no where ofcourse!! I then called my Honda dealer and they wanted to charge me $45 to give me the unlock code AND they would have to take out my radio to get the serial number, what a bunch of garbage!!So this is what I finally found out!!A very easy and FREE way to fix your radio. Make sure your radio is OFF. Hold down the preset buttons 1 and 6 at the same time. Turn the radio on and your SERIAL NUMBER will appear. 4 numbers first and then 4 more. Write them down Then call (800) 999-1009. This is the number for American Honda Motor's main office. Make sure you have your VIN number handy because they will ask for it. They will ask for your name and approx. milage, and your radio's serial number. (If you have recently purchased the vehicle they will ask you to fax a copy of your license and registration to prove it's yours) They will then give you your radio unlock code. Easy as that!Has any one else had this problem? I wish I would have found this number a month ago when my radio went out!! Uughthanks, the website would have been helpful however, because I recently bought my honda, my info is not what they had on file. So I had to call, give them my new info, and then fax my license and registration for verification. So the website wouldn't have worked for me!And I did search my car up and down for this! The dealership said that many ppl don't leave the code in the car, in case it does get stolen or something...
