I recently dumped dish for verizon fios which was initially a financial decision more than anything it saved me over 100 dollars bundling things together. In may of 2006 I purchased a 622 reciever from dish because there was no lease promotion at that time. Around the same time I also purchased a 510 from ebay. Now I went to close my account and after 3 phone calls and 90 minutes of various hold time I am told that I need to return all recievers on my account. I dispute that the 622 was purchased and what I was told ultimately was that the 299 was for the privelege of leasing it and if I didnt return it they would charge me 599. Also the 510 needed to be returned because when they add any reciever to your account that you didnt buy from them they look at it as a lease. I have put up with the constant resets, the varying picture quality the poor customer service all for over 6 years and 11,000 dollars. They could care less because it costs much more to maintain an existing customer than to create 4 or 5 new ones. Just be warned that the equipment you think you own is never really yours.
