I want to pause my service. I call a Dish Rep to do it. He cannot pause my service because "my equipment is out of date". I tell him my equipment works fine, but I do not want Dish service ATM, so why would I need new equipment.
No he says, he cannot pause my service until he has sent new equipment?
Well, says I, I would not bother to install it anyways because what I have now is working fine, and its not like I want to see more advertisements in HD.
And since I'm not going to use your service for 6 months, why bother me with new equipment right now in order to pause my service?
After much too-ing and fro-ing, the "back office boys" got it paused.
What's gong to happen next year when I want to un-pause the Dish service?
YUP, I will have to move to Comcast!
They supply my Internet anyways. So, if Dish insists on new equipment, it'll be Comcast I deal with!
