You said not to call and try to upgrade until 6. Was that Eastern time or what?

Yeah, I have a feeling this will be the only time I do this. And it's only because I just got a HDTV this weekend and have been stuck watching Discovery HD. I've seen "Rides" at the Autorama like 5 times now :-/sonnyboy11 said:heh- Welcome to the wonderful world of Dish Network! Like I said, they are being told to get people to call back later... MUCH later if possible, to help alleviate the call load when the systems do go up. Apparently, they don't understand the mindset of the hardcore videophile very well, now do they?
I wonder, will they charge the 299 to your bill or will you have to pay by CC?sonnyboy11 said:Well, the website is up. And I was finally able to login to my account. And lo and behold- I now have the option to upgrade to the 622VIP just by calling! So, I call... and I still get told to call back later. sigh
Oh, and they are really emphasizing the "$299.99 fee to upgrade". One rep even told me "Hey, I think that $200 rebate might apply to your 811 too if you just wait till April 1st". Whatever it takes to get people to call some other time.
