There is no reactivation fee. Since it's a prepaid plan, you start with the full amount every time you activate the receiver. And for those of you that have paid an entire month just to use the service, you overpaid. Call Dish when you're done with the service and put the service on hold. Don't let the company burn through through your unused money.

You DO NOT call them to pause or suspend the account. That will result in a monthly $10 "Maintenance Fee" to keep the account active. What you do is call them and tell them to CANCEL or DISCONNECT your service. The wording you use is critical to getting a credit for the unused portion of your prepaid month. Then you will receive a remaining balance credit on your account against the charges when you want to restart your service or your can ask for a refund of your credit balance. I have done it this way for the past 10 years and never paid for more than the partial month I used.


I have never paid any fees to put the account on hold, regardless of what word I use.

I believe Dish has a mobile only plan... last I knew, it was $35/mo.

I just take the receiver from my house and pay nothing. I do sometimes call to change my locals at no charge.
