Had to call DISH to get a 721 replaced (yeay) and thought I'd call them on the "special" number 888-333-dish. It goes directly to a DirectTV seller!

I could have sworn I used that number in the past for DISH. A search here shows Scott giving the number last year. A Google search ties the number to DISH via a few websites.

Am I losing it? Didn't Dish use that number in the recent past?

Wasn't that the number given on the Club Dish cards?

I accidentally called 888-333-3474 a few times, and it was DISH support for existing members (actual americans!) and not toll free india !

888-333-dish is a dealer with a soud alike number. If you called them in the past, they always said t0 call 800-333-dish if you were an existing customer.

It's all automated now. It's harder to get a real person than ever for BOTH D*(I can give out their # as well.... :)) and E*. With D*, you have to give them the room location and serial # and half the time, the damn thing wants to argue with me about the fact that if can't understand me.... :(. Fortunately, I haven't had to talk to too many CSRs lately....
