Um, this is how this started. Lying to E!psnarula said:check it here:
this form shows what channels are available to every address.
hint: find a pizza hut, mcdonalds, etc in the target zip code and add a non-existent apartment number to the address.
Actually E* lost distants for failure to keep records and failure disconnect KNOWN illegal subscribers - not because of "movers".Paul Secic said:Um, this is how this started. Lying to E!
Do they ask for a new tel number when you "move". I guess people just tell them that they did a self install also?psnarula said:i think this guy chose his parent's address because they live in that market.
other people just add a non-existent apartment number to the address of a fast food restaurant. the address you choose doesn't have to exist -- it just has to work in the computer. and the computer only keeps track of acceptable ranges of addresses (much like the postal service).
on some roads, the addresses jump in increments of 10. if you pick an address in the middle that ends with a 5, it'll work in the computer and you'll be assured that you won't conflict with a real subscriber at some real location.
Yeah, I was asked about it, and the truth is, we don't have a phone. We're cell all the way.psnarula said:no, they don't ask for a new telephone number. if they happen to ask, just say that you don't have a phone there because you use your cellphone at the vacation home.
It would be interesting to see what would happen if an NPS DNS customer transferred their E* service to an LIL area without notifying NPS. If the NPS DNS then disappeared, that would be proof positive that the two companies are acting in concert.gspguy said:Maybe I jumped on the NPS solution too fast.
The west coast ABC feed is poor at the moment.
I'm psyching myself up for the "move" call to E*.
