Dish Network / just try leaving them

1 United States Review updated:

I never had any problems with Dish Network until I decided to leave their service and switch to a bundle package from my local cable provider that gave me broadband, telephone and cable tv service for one price on one bill. When I called to cancel my service (I had no contract with Dish Network so I was free to cancel at any time) the representative insisted that I stay a Dish customer for another 30 days while I tried out the cable service and then call them back to cancel. I ended up loving my new service and when I called to cancel the Dish service I was on the line over a half hour listening to sales pitches and listening to their customer service rep tell me how much I would hate cable service. After I finally got the rep to agree to cancel my account I hung up the phone and then the phone calls from Dish Network started coming. They call EVERY DAY as many as twenty times a day and as many as FIVE TIMES IN ONE HOUR begging me to come back to Dish Network. I wouldn't believe a company the size of Dish Network would act this way but just google "dish network telemarketing" or the number [protected] and you will see what I mean. This is their standard method of operation. They have harassed me to the point that I am considering having my number changed. I have asked them not to call, I am on their "no call" list and I am on the national no call list but STILL THEY CALL. This seems to be happening to everyone who leaves Dish Network. It is unbelievable. Stay away from them.

    DISH has been terrible to me... I am not looking forward to canceling, which I'm about ready to do. I have a suggestion which may help with their incessant calling... if you have a computer and it allows you to manually select "answer this as a fax call", you can do that. Then their equipment thinks your number is a fax number. This worked for me with another company which harassed me constantly (I never had even been a customer, and was on the national do not call list). I answered it, they got the fax tone, and they never called again!

    I am having the same problem with Dishnetwork. I left them and am now being harassed by constant phone calls. I called them and told them if they don't stop calling I am contacting a lawyer and filing a suit for harassment. Getting 5 calls in 4 hours every day. I will sue if they don't stop. I left them because I needed hight speed internet and also because they called constantly when you are a customer also.

    I am also on the "no call list" and also called them and put myself on their list and nothing helps.

    If they do not stop I will contact the BBB, attorney general of Pa, and also my lawyer.
