Getting daily pre-recorded advertising/sales calls to our cell phone. Direct TV has no means on their website to complain. Their phone system is all pre-recorded crap that tries to force you to establish an account. No means to complain or ask them to stop calling. We will never subscribe to their service.
I got three calls from this number (866) 478-9814 on my cell phone today, thanks for letting us know who's behind it. I didn't answer, they didn't leave a message.
For the record, I'm also on the DNC list BUT Directv is my current satellite provider. I'm under the impression that if you are currently, or have done business with a company, they have permission to use your number for sales calls.
I just added this number to my contacts and edited the contact so all calls go straight to voicemail. :)

We do have DirecTv so my husband called to find out what they wanted. They did not call us! This message is claiming to be from DirecTv but is not! It has been calling my cell phone every morning for over a week now. VERY annoying.

They called, I answered. I got no response, repeatedly. They hung up on me.
I've rec'd 16 calls from this number this past week while I was in the hospital (up to 6/day). It's a recorded message from DirecTv. I've had that service for several years and recently discontinued it, so it's probably a sales solicitation to get me back. [Note: I've seen where other people were able to trace where the calls are coming from but I don't know how to do this. How do you do it? Any info would on this would be *very* helpful!] Thanks to all who use this site and provide valuable feedback!
I keep getting calls from this number and since I didn't recognize the number I would not answer the phone. Message are left about installing Direct TV. I did not order Direct TV. This is so annoying.
I am receiving calls from this same no. Daily. Sometimes, 2x a Day, and No ONE is on the other side of the line. I think you are correct. It is DIRECTV. Someone needs to put a stop to this nonsense. If they make a phone call, they should, at the very least, speak up. It is very annoying and upsetting that they go through all this effort to call and not say anything!

They just sent me a text! "PLEASE CALL".
I have been batting calls from this number the past few days. When I answer no one speaks. Nothing. These calls come through my cell phone which I use only for emergencies because I am disabled. These clls have really been a pain in the ass for me.
When I answer, no one speaks, nothing. I thought it was one of those scams where they charge you ridiculous amounts of money just because you picked up the phone. But I see it is probably DirectTV.
I think they owe me some money, my cell is on the do not call list. How do I collect from them? When I answer they never pick up. Yes I agree this is harrasment!
Sick of them calling. They have called repeatedly and don't leave a message. Then, yesterday, twice in 2 minutes......

When you get unwanted calls like this, instead of dumping the number from your cell phone, save it to your Contacts. Then go to the setting options for the ring tone and set to "none". When they call, at least your phone won't ring.
This is Direct TV. I called them back and got someone named James. I told him I have not contacted this company and that I am on the DNC list. I made it very clear that I am not to be bothered anymore. He asked for my name and I gave him a fake one and then he asked for my phone number. I gave him the correct one and he assured me that my number would be removed within 48 hours. I sure do hope that it true because the very next time I get a call, I am going to contact the DNC people and stay on it until something is done to the XXXholes who lie to you and tell you that "the number used to belong to someone else". I think we all just ought (in our spare time) to call them all day long for a change. From what I have seen so far the DNC list is a joke.
Calling nearly everyday.. I never answer the call.
I get very frustrated with calls like this. I do not answer unless I know who they are.
same number calls a couple of times a day for the last month or so. if it is direct tv is is probably to get me to sign another contract again. i just let the answering machine do it's work...
sOMEONE USING THIS NUMBER IS CALLING ME SEVERAL TIMES PER DAY AND NIGHT. How do I stop it???!!!
If it's DirectTV, I am on the National Do Not Call list. Doesn't that do something?
