it was DISH, and they called because they noticed I was having a problem on my service (which I am, "signal loss" on one tuner). They are sending out a technician free of charge to fix the problem. Sounds good to me.
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.
We have gotten two calls from these creeps in 24 hours. Caller ID is Toll Free Caller.
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
I have Dish Network, but don't answer any call when the ID says "unavailable."
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.
My Caller ID says Dish Network calling me on a 9.21.2014 @ 10:52am I am on the DO NOT CALL LIST do not call me again you are hereby BLOCKED and who wants Dish Network when you have Directv.

This is Dish Network. It's either a sales call, or it is because your service has been disconnected, or you owe for their services, or a combination of the last two. Corporate address is: 9601 S. Meridian Blvd., Englewood, CO. 80112. Contact person is David Laslo, Supervisor, Complaint Department

It's Dish Network confirming a tech appointment, or a call back for a survey.
All2familiar Dec 01st, 2013

dontbotherme Sep 10th, 2013
I got two calls from here today, one at 2:22 and at 5:30. I also got three of them on july 26.. why doesn't someone do something about this spammer?
I received call this morning. I was automated and claimed to be DISH. Basically, it was a pay up call. The only problem is that I don't have an account. Time to call the attorney general?
oh yeah keep it up. You will being paying for all those dial and hang up calls you people are pulling on customers. Dish can be replaced. You are not the only game in town. You think you are too big to care that the government might favor your dirty dealing ways of telephone electronic harassment? Back Off.
SueCitySueYou Jul 19th, 2013
It is Dish. If you call it back and follow prompts you can remove your number from sales calls. If you haven't paid your bills, then quit trying to have Dish if you can't afford it.
Calling several days in a row, several times a day. Leave no message AND do not talk when I answer.
AND my bill is current! Harrassing! Call during work.
This is Dish Satellite for my TV. My payment is 2 days late. They left a message saying to pay immediately to avoid a $7.00 late fee. Whatever.
Two days in a row getting a call from this number. They hang up after I have been charged by my pay as you go phone for the call. Luckily I figured out how to put them on the reject call list. *Grins*
It was a call back from their automated system for the survey I agreed to.
These mother-f**kers call at least 5x per day ON MY CELL. Have tried suggestions on this site for getting off this list w/o any luck.
DISH NETWORK = SCUM OF THE EARTH
Mad Miguel Dec 26th, 2012
Follow up from this morning's dish network install.
Me no have Dish. Me no electric power.
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
>> KATE is his latest personal assistant as of Oct.31.2012, but compassion is not her best trait.

DISH NETWORK Oct 31st, 2012
Probably follow-up from yesterday's Dish Install - ignored. No message left. Now blocking on Google Voice.
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!
It's Dish Network wanting to know why they didn't process my payment.
Dishnetwork, they start calling 2 or 3 days before your bill is due.
Stan Coots Jun 14th, 2012
It's dish networks Vaal back survey
Had Dish Network service yesterday (01/15/2012) and Dish was calling.
Automated call came from 866-668-8047 stating a late payment problem with my Dish Network bill. Message gives 866-263-1911
as a call back number. I called. Its Direct TV trying to get me to swith from Dish. AT&T says they have no knowledge of the practice.
28 june 2011 -- 9:30 am -- dish network... left message. we are discontinuing our dish service. get several calls a day from them from several different numbers.
If you are late with DISH they don't tell you but they send your bill to a collection agency and they will not removeit, very bad for your credit rating?
1 June 2011 -- 2:32 pm -- Robo message left from Dish network.
02 May 2011 -- 2:09 pm -- Dish Network. Left a robo-call message.
The entire message was in Spanish - which I don't speak. DUH!
Two days in a row received calls from 866-668-8047 saying I owe money to Dish Network. I DON'T EVEN HAVE DISH AND NEVER HAVE!!!! 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?
3 Mar 2011 -- message left from dish network.
3rd day in a row - same call, same number, so annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!
just signed with dish network--stuck for 2 years--after that --do not know
but they do not need to call me again
I just got a call from them too. Called back and it was the sales and marketing team. Just needed to press #2 to be removed from their list.
I'm a Dish customer.
This just started today on my cell phone. Yep, was dish and I am NOT a customer. I followed the prompts to be put on the do not call. Now I just need to wait and see if it works.
I am not a pre-paid cell user, but would be pissed if every call takes away pre-paid time.
Dirty Harry Dec 07th, 2010
I am a known customer to them but this is annoying to receive 18 phone calls from them in 4 days. This must stop!!!
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.
DISH cust. too Nov 16th, 2010
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.
Dish Customer 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.
gearheadgary 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.
It's Dish TV. I've called them and asked them to remove my number. Even though they say that they will and that it takes 30 days to do so, they won't. Now they call and leave messages in Spanish. It's been going on for over a year now. I've never had Dish TV, and with this experience, I never will.
Have had several calls in the last couple of days. Was from Dish Network advising me of the "special deals" they were currently offering. I am a current customer, so guess they have the right to call.
Got a message from this number saying we hadn't paid our bill. This was on the 9th. I had mailed my payment in on the 1st! Called them back and they said it takes a few days for a check to post. So why call me then? Stupid stupid...
Calls and hangs up. I am a customer, but if it continues I'm switching to Direct TV!
Dish Network again.
I added their number to my "forward to voice mail" list.
gsbrickner Aug 13th, 2010
This is the reason I leave the fax machine turned on......
This is someone from dish network who has the wrong number and trying to collect someones bill they owe. I have never had a satellite tv and do not know how thwy got my number,i called and they said it would take 30 days to stop calling.
I also emailed them and told them to cease and desist or i was going to fcc.
gary peacock Aug 02nd, 2010
I will not pick up any phone call from unknown or no caller id, if it is not a recognizable phone number.
Called and said from dish would cut off if did not pay. I have never had any satelite service before in my life.
Sounds like scam!!!!!!!
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.
karen in tx Jul 16th, 2010
This is simply a computer recording reminding us that we have a service installing appointment set and it reminds of the date and time of appointment.
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...
When I answered this call, all that was there was air. I hung up.
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?
Pete Duquemin May 28th, 2010
My payment is passed due to dish network so they are calling me and telling me I need to pay.
I don't have Dish Network. Besides, I've had my new cell phone number for a month and I know I didn't give it out to Dish Network.
No message I have no clue who this is.
yes thay just colled me 3.9.10
Yep its Dish at least when I called the number back it gave me an option to be removed from the call list (which I did) however, even though I am registered on the "DO NOT CALL LIST" and have selected the option to be removed the recording tells me it will take them up to 30 days to remove me. That's BS. I agree that another $6 million dollar class suit may have to be filed to "FIX" their broken phone system.
some one called me from 866-668-8047 and didnot bother leaving a message.
soen one called me from 866-668-8047 and didnot bother leaving a message.
They called to say they are going to fix the dish which has never worked right since installed. They could at least have a person with a pulse to call, for what they charge for a PART TIME TV SAT. CO.
I just received two call from Dish today on my cell phone. I have Dish Network but never gave them my cell number when signing up? ....I feel another $6 million dollar class action suit in the making. I am willing to share in the wealth from their stupidty, how about the rest of you?
Who's going to answer someone that may be one of "those" telemarketers. I tried for 4 hours to be one. I got a new respect for them and once attempted to just say that they were wasting their time, hoping they would go on to the next number. However, some do not want to take no as an answer.
i called the number yesterday and hit #2, was told I'd be removed from their list. However, I just got another call from the evil DISHbot 8666688047.
these folks call about every 2 hrs, even on sunday. they call after 8pm. they never leave a message. I screen all calls. They are driving me mad!
Dish network marketing call -- they didn't answer in time on the ACD for me to hit 2. =)
Another pain I'll report to FTC
Dish Network - you can press two to get them to stop calling you back. It's a marketing call.
NUMBER ON DO NOT CALL LIST !
It is Dish. If you call they will take you off the list. Yo need to call the 866 number
..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.
DISH Customer Sep 09th, 2009
got a call from Dish Network early today that I had put out a call tag and they were coming to check it out. I did not call them to put out a repair tag. Then I get a call from this 866 #, picked it up and no hint of anyone there when I said hello. I hate that.
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.
A recording claimed I had called the service center, wanted 3-4 minutes to offer ?, I disconnected
I just started getting this on my cell phone. I tried to answer but no one stays on long enough to say hello. It is quite annoying. This number has called me 3 times in two days!
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!
This number called me repeatedly the last few days including after 9PM Friday night and at 10AM Saturday morning!
This telemarketer needs to be stop from calling.... at all hours of the day
Dish just settled a $6 million payout because of calls like these.
Dish worker Aug 01st, 2009
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!
calls 3-4 times daily. Hangs up when machine catches call. No message. Early a.m. and as late as 8:30 p.m.
