Would you expect your cellphone to work if deactivated? Or your Credit Card? or your internet service? Why would you expect different with DirecTV®
Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought. -- JFK
To make calls and send texts? NO. But to still have my photos and videos on it? Of course. If you deactivate your phone, do they delete or deny you access to the material you put on your phone when you were a paying customer? NOT! Do I have to take the baseball and gloves back to the store that I purchased when I was in good standing with my old credit card when I deactivate it? NOT! Do all the songs I paid for and downloaded on i tunes, or articles I've PDF'd or the stats from my slots game vanish when I deactivate my internet service? NOT! I paid for Showtime, HBO, Cinemax, The Discovery Channel and I bought and paid for my DVR and the service to run and record on it. But when I deactivated it, Directv stole it all away from me. The gloves went back, my photos, movies music all disappeared, and my computer went blank. Did Directv in any way make me aware of this? NOT! I was a customer for over 7 years, had a Genie, 3 other DVR's, and a lot of unwatched series, Movies, special events, and I paid for it all, and now its gone. Ya I.m the dummy and I just assumed it would be accessible, but who wouldn't?
