    I would prepare for this post to be locked as this is something that violates TOS of DirecTV and of DBSTalk.

    i dont see how this would break any rules. the receiver i have i just want to upgrade and i just dont have the account number for it. so if theres no way that anyone knows of to obtain its account number with only an active access card number then i will just have to live with it. (i used to have it years ago but lost it) im not asking for anything illegal or for anyone to violate any TOS. just lookin for info thats all

    and the only reason why i asked twice was that i felt it needed it to be addressed in its own thread as i thought it might be complicated and it didnt get answered in the original. no worries

    How do you not have your account number? It's on your bill. Or do you not have an account & you're using someone elses box? Also, you can't use your newly acquired card on a new box.

    I have no idea what my account number is. I pay annually via CC auto-debit and never get a paper bill.

    I could get it though by calling Customer Service.
