    Existing Customer - Can I get New Customer Deals?

    Not sure if the topic "crosses the line" on this board..If so, sorry.

    If not, then...

    Can I cancel my service and sign up for new service w/ my wife's name and SSN to get the DishHD DVR for free?

    Do they have restrictions on using the same physical address?

    You will likely launch a debate on ethics with this one.

    Is it possible, yes.
    Is it ethical, my opinion no.

    I read through the Terms of Service to see if they define "new, first time residential customers"...

    They basically say it's anyone who is currently not a subscriber (or in the previous 6 months) and has never has Dish for longer than 6 months.

    They do not define whether the customer is the "household" or the "individual account holder".

    I want to know.....If I call DISH and honestly tell them I want to cancel my service and sign up using my wife's name/SSN, will they let me?

    Not sure I understand why "ethics" would be in question.

    How much would the HD receiver cost as an upgrade?

    There is nothing wrong or unethical with canceling and signing up your wife as a new customer. Charlie the CEO would prefer you didn't though.

    How much the upgrade to a 722 would cost depends on how long you've been a customer. Cost would be between $199 and $249 (installation costs already included). Only way to find out for sure is to call 800-333-DISH and ask. The GOOD NEWS is that DISH is offering a $100 mail in rebate for each receiver you upgrade (limit 2). So that let's you shave $100 off the price. Plus, if you are a first time DishHD subscriber you will get that package free for six months. That's worth $120 right there!

    If you've been a customer for less than a year then forget about it. Can't blame them on that though. Those receivers cost them good money! Besides, I'm sure you got lots of goodies and freebies thrown at you when you first signed up.
