    So, if I fail to renew my Safety Connect service, I truly won't be able to use things like Charge Management and Remote A/C or Heat?

    Or will they continue working anyway?

    I figured Safety Connect was only for emergencies and roadside assistance, not the entire EnTune suite of apps.

    Does it really kill all those abilities if I don't renew?

    I could not access the entune app without having a Safety Connect account. I suspect that it's needed because it provides the LTE cellular connection that passes data to the car.

    You need working Safety Connect service to provide needed telematic functioning for the Remote App. Without the Safety Connect service, your phone app has no way to communicate with the car. The fob remote A/C will continue to work, but all the phone app-based remote functions will stop working if you discontinue the Safety Connect service.
