So I added a wireless joey about 2 weeks ago and called in today to order a second. They are telling me a tech has to come out to install the joey and will not ship it like they did the first one. Customer service was unable to explain why a tech had to install . They did say I can purchase one at a retail loacation then install it myself. Things aren't making sense.
Any leased equipment that isn't a 1 for 1 trade, ordered directly from Dish requires a tech for installation. If you go through a 3rd party or retailers, you can order a leased or purchased WJ that they will ship to you.
If the warehouse is currently out of stock, local retailers and local hubs would still have wireless Joeys, thus it would require a tech to install (from the local hub) instead of being shipped from the warehouse.
None, other than Dish can charge you $95 for the tech visit. I bought mine because I wasn't willing to pay for something I could do myself in 5 minutes (and didn't want to extend my contract). You were lucky they didn't require installation for the first one, I was told it was required.
