I would do the most logical thing which is to call them first.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

Yes my problem is is they were suppose to do this 5 months ago when they realized they had the equipment whenever I would call they would say me having Internet through them isn't showing up on the account the person I talked to that found out they had the equipment I haven't been able to talk to him and everyone else I talk to gives me the run around if I could get it credited to my account I would be ok with that but it seems like no one wants to help

I've had 1 Dish customer and 1 DirecTV customer (myself) (that I know of) charged a non-return fee for a receiver still active on the respective account! No idea how THAT can happen, but it did, LOL.  DISH could not get the charge off the account and wound up just issuing a credit for the amount, I'm not sure if the non-cancellation of the original charge is going to be a black mark on that's customer record forever or not, despite the credit for the same amount.


Things get messed up on the computers all the time, be pleasant but be persistent.  


I'm still owed around $100 (NAICT), and am just waiting for a non-busy day so I can burn off an hour trying to get it fixed.
