    DISH can't change name on accounts!?

    Greetings,

    Look time reader of this forum but now have a problem. My gf and I recently broke-up so she moved out. The DISH service is in her name, but I would like to keep everything as is with the Vip 622 and add another receiver for my new roommate.

    We called DISH today and they told me they could not switch the account to my name. In fact, she would have to disconnect service and I would have to start a whole new account. An installer would then have to come out and install everything back the way it is right now plus add the other receiver.

    Is there anyway around this if I escalate the issue?

    Thank you!

    Haha thanks, if it were that easy!

    I mean I used to work at phone company that wasn't always cutting edge but we could change liability on accounts! AT&T said no as well so I had do a whole new account with them. But at least they aren't going to have to bring out a new modem!

    Did you try what Scott suggested? He was being serious. That is the executive office and if anyone can help it will be them. Give it a shot.

    I will try it. I also don't want to pay an early term fee, since the account is 8 months into the 18 month contract.

    If the account is under her name then SHE would be the one to pay the early termination fee.
