    I was wondering if anyone has had this problem when trying to get Directv retention. When I call 1-800-531-5000 it asks me the reason for my call. I say I want to cancel. It then asks me if I want to cancel my Directv account or change programming. When I say cancel service it then asks me if I am moving. It then says let me get you to the correct area for your request. The next thing that happens is it asks if you are calling from the phone number you called on and to push 1. When you do that it says let me process your request and it goes back to the what is the reason for you call and it is a never ending loop without talking to anybody.

    I went on chat and asked how to get to retention and they told me to call 1-800-824-9081 and gave me a pin. I've done this but I don't know if it was retention I was talking to or not. Anyway I wonder if anyone else has had this happen to them because I think that it is strange.

    That sounds like a programming error in the IVR. Did the people you talked to resolve your problem?

    Several have mentioned that the new name is 'Customer Loyalty'.

    I was told that...last year? They did admit to it only being a name change.

    Would you share your PIN?

    Shouldn't need a pin if you are calling from the number listed on your account. That's what it was asking for. :)

    When I was working with Case Management a few years ago, they gave me a pin but stated it was a one-time pin. Once I called in and used that, they had to issue another pin. So I'm not sure getting their pin would help anyone else.

    I wanted retention, but the recording wouldn't get me there, so I asked for billing. When it connected, I then asked for retention and got switched over there.

    Did you say, "Cancel service"? That seems to work for me.
