I just deleted my FOURTH answering message informing me that Dish has purchased BLAH from VOOM and that, as a previous VOOM customer, I should call Dish to sign up. I can see one call -- maybe two -- but FOUR is just excessive. Especially since it talks about a deal and to call their number. I actually called it, and when I informed them that I already was a Dish customer, they told me that they didn't have anything for me and to just call Dish directly at their normal number (which they provided).

In other words, the number from the message is for non-Dish people only, of course. Which is fine -- but they can quit calling me now! Sheesh! Note that two of the four calls were AFTER I called their number and was told that they couldn't do anything for me. :rolleyes:

Just tired of the Dish/VOOM telemarketing -- and it's barely been a week!
