Got another call from these Anal Sphincters. Caller ID said Toll Free Caller. They left a message that started during our outgoing message. It wants us to pay a Dish Network bill now to avoid a $7 late fee. We don't have and never have had Dish Network.

To 4 letter word: "A full-bodied and timely delivery of a whistle into the ear of a caller I hear tell works wonders!' So does the sound of a fax machine. You'd be surprised at the drop in all t-marketing calls I get. Used to be 10-12 a day, now maybe four, if that many. Average "hang-up time" now is about 3 seconds. :D

We don't have and never have had Dish Network. But we got the same recorded call every one else reports. Forget the ineffective no call lists and buy a call blocker. At least they work after the first bogus call. Do not call lists only work on legitimate businesses anyway and frequently not even with them.

Harassing phone calls from DISH NETWORK?? They are just hanging up. No caller ID to identify themselves and will not leave any message identifying themselves. The actions of a crank call.

>> To stop these calls call CHARLIE ERGEN at 1-303-723-1010 or 1-303-723-1005.
>> KATE is his latest personal assistant as of Oct.31.2012, but compassion is not her best trait.

from poster "Buster":
EchoStar which is the Parent Company of Dish Network, at 9601 South Meridian Blvd, Englewood, CO 80112 - 303-723-1000. The Man In Charge there is named Charlie Ergen... President, CEO, Chairman of the Board and Mr. Invisible... almost. You can reach the person reported to be his Personal Assistant who goes by Marcie [KATE] at 303-723-1005... Oh and Mr. Ergen himself... Try 303-723-1010.

Got first call and it got my machine beeping. I answered second call to see who it was . A survey from the Dish network about a recent service call. I don't have the dish network, but since they called I decided to answer their survey, Had to give them ones....not pleased with service, Then they give you 90 seconds to talk!!!!! Joy. I was able to inform them of the fact I am not a customer and they have tmessed up my machine I also told them I was happy to tie up their line and now they have to pat someone to listen to my nonsense. Waste their time and money!

I called the number back, press -0- and talk to the stupidest rep ever. He said he cannot do anything about it. It is a third party???? I responded that HE must be the third party since he answered the phone. Told him to stop calling. He says it takes 24-48 hours to remove the number. Oh, he says maybe a prior customer had my number and that is why they are calling. Bull! How do we stop these calls?

I live in New England. And DISH calls me every day. I've opted to be placed on their no call list. This was ov er 2 months ago and they still call. They said they will still call if you're late with a payment. Another thing is that, in New England, DISH and COMCAST are fighting for customers. COMCAST hs been by my house four times within the last several months. They said they're visiting former COMCAST customers trying to get customers back because they are losing customers fast. COMCAST has just simply become too expensive. I've told them that if they can't give me the exact same package I have now for $20 less a month than what I'm paying now then there's no incentive for me to switch back to COMCAST. It's the middle of November now and there hasn't been any COMCAST reps by my house since. I guess they finally understand.

If you call the number there's an automated recording. You will be given menu options. After you choose which language you want, you will be given other options. Press "2" to be placed on their no-call list. However, it can take up to 30 days to take effect.
 Nov 16th, 2010
Dish Network indeed.

Sometimes their due dates don't line up with my paycheck intervals. So sue me.

They are wasting time/money/energy calling with stupid reminders. They pop up a window on my receiver when I'm a week or so from shutoff, that's all the reminder I need.
Michigan
 Nov 05th, 2010
It is from Dish Network and I see so many negative comments...but I am a current customer and choose to have my bills delivered online. I am sometimes bad about not checking email and forget 'due dates" . So I for one know that when I get this call its a friendly reminder and will route me to a person who is just letting me know that i am currently due for payment to them and have approx 7-10 days to make the payment. It does not offend me that they call and yes sometimes its bad timing, but when a customer's satellite gets cut off then we all would be fussing we didnt know the bill was due. I for one say if you are a current customer you should apprecicate the phone call. For those of you that are not, block their number.

We just signed up w/Dish today for a family member. Worked with a great rep in NJ, after speaking with several who gave bad info & were in the Philippines. 1 of them was supposed to call us today at 4pm, but didn't. Now we get calls at 1040pm????? Probably from 1 of the NOT good reps who lost the sale from bad info. Guess they didn't bother checking time here in the US..... And they called both my home phone AND cell, but didn't bother leaving a message.

I have never had dish network service in my life so I have no idea how they got my number, but if you call the number back (for me it was 866-668-8047) there is an automated system (you don't have to wait to speak to anyone) to put your number on the do not call list. we'll see if this actually works...

The company "Dish Network" has louaed up my account from the start. They transferred the account to Century Link and they suck even worse than Comcast, so it seems. How come these dumbass TV and communication related companies can not get their act together? After all, it is bad enough I am practically forced to pay in order to see TV, and after paying I get to watch a bunch of fucking commmercials. THis is another example of shitty quality coming out of the USA! When will the crappy quality products and services and low life companies with their faked fucking professionalism ever end?

That's BS. I agree that another $6 million dollar class suit may have to be filed to "FIX" their broken phone system.

..the message was nothing more than a 53-second long high-pitched tone. I called back; it is DISH Network. They were trying to reach us as we are new customers and they wanted to welcome us and to see if there were any issues with our service to date. We were customers of DirecTV for ten years before switching recently. We never had anything close to this type of customer service with DirecTV and are glad we made the switch.

I have discontinued my service with Dish but still get annoying calls from this number. I have repeatedly told them that I am no longer a customer and that I am on the Do Not Call list, but I still get calls. Now, when I answer, no one is there which makes me think these are just harrasment calls. The last live person I spoke to very angrily asked why I discontinued my Dish service. When I refused to answer, he got beligerent so I hung up after informing him not to ever call me from Dish again.
Today I spoke to Tom at this number and he said it was not a Dish phone number. I asked why, when I call it, it is answered "Dish" and I was directed to him.
These calls only started after I discontinued using Dish, and I have had up to 3 calls in one day.

Dish Network.

I got a call and they left a message alerting me that my equipment needed to be shipped back. UPS arrived with a replacement receiver a few hours later, so Dish was ahead of the ball. I looked at this page and did a bit of research.

The INBOUND number will direct to Dish Network's "Outbound Alerts" IVR. This number is odd though. When it calls you, it could be actual Dish Network with an important message, or it could be one of a few other things.

Dish recently had problems with third party retailers setting this number in as the Caller ID on their system and calling pretending to be dish. They'd try to force a hard sell, get credit if they got it, and could never get caught if they didn't because the number was apparently Dish.

The second problem is that if somebody steals Dish network service and gives YOUR phone number for the account, you will get the call. Dish does not automatically verify numbers when accounts are set up (Nobody anywhere does though). Therefore Chris Criminal can start an account with stolen information including Your Phone Number. Then when he skips out, steals the equipment, etc, Dish will call you about it.

The third issue is that even if it is completely valid, Dish's outbound calling system is somewhat kludgy. It calls OUT, then when it reaches a person, it rings IN to an operator if it's not an automated message. If there is no operator available, it puts you on silent hold while it tires to reach one, or just gives up and hangs up.

So yes, this number could be good to hear from, or bad. It's just a gamble lately.

Got this call on my cellphone, which is strange considering I am underage and of course living with my parents... I'm not the one who pays for the Dish Network service, I didn't sign up for it. I don't know how they got my cell number; I'm thinking my parents gave it to them, but I can't think of a reason why they would.

I got this call at 6:20 am, so at least I got up in time for school? They left a voicemail but all it said was "Press Two" in this creepy robot voice, then a bunch of static.
Reading all these comments, it sounds like they call more than once... Maybe they'll call at the same time tomorrow and I won't have to set my alarm!

I don't appreciate the calls from Dish Network especially since my own message systems ask for the name of the caller to leave a message; they have called 3 times a day and this gets very annoying..In my Caller ID all I see in the window is 866-668-8047 or Unkown Name at different intervals..I have left a message on my answering machine to stop calling if they cannot leave other than *Unkown Name* and *number* I am on the Do Not Call List but apparently even that isn't working!
