Switching to different receiver?

Dish is pushing for ALL customers to be upgraded to HD recievers, if you only need a single tuner, 211 will be fine, avoid 622 if you do go for a dual tuner, 722 is much better
if you have your heart set on your 301, no, there will not be any charges for swapping the two
p.s. am an installer for dish, seen old 301 and 311's still kickin....

Swapping receivers should not incur a charge. As an added receiver the 301 will cost you $7 more per month on your account. Removing a receiver will remove it's fee. Swapping something older for a 301 shouldn't cost you anything but the time on the phone.
So, my question is, are there fees to activate and deactivate the receivers? If so, how much? Thanks.
(Unless the 301 didn't come from a clean account.)

... Most important you need a purple card in it or DISH will have to send one before it can be activated.
Is there a charge for the new card?
