That would be nice Stampederbarter said:When you call to disactivate your receiver, you can also tell bell to allow "who ever calls to activate it", to acivate it, they will make a note on their inventory. Although giving them actual name is better.
Agreed...last time I looked my account (on Bell's website) lists 14 receivers. Six of them were 6000s that Bell sent to me for ONE owned unit that they kept sending DOAs. I have talked and talked till I am blue in the face about these warranty replacements listed on my account.Not true, I currently have more than 6 receiver's registered to me, but only 6 active receiving programming. You can have more than 6 receivers registered, but only allowed to have 6 active. Two Bell CSR 's I have talked to have confirmed this. There is no limit of the number receivers that canbe registered to your name.
That's weird. Once you notify them that it's no longer in your possession then they have an obligation to deactivate it and remove it from your account. At the very least they must deactivate it so there's no way you should be on the hook for any ppv charges. If they use it for illegal purposes it doesn't effect you either but make sure you notify them that you have sold it.Just a word of caution on selling your receivers on an auction site, if the person buys it for illegal purpose (ie does not activate it with Bell) they WILL remain in your file until they do.
I have sold one 5100 2 years ago and it is still on my account... I have had some heated discussion with BEV to take them out but they told me it cannot be done..
That might happen but the correct procedure would be for the Bell rep to verify that it has been sold. They won't contact the original owner of the IRD but they inform the buyer that they must contact the original buyer and have them call Expressvu and verify the transfer. The Bell Rep then notes the account and the new owner's name is entered into the notes. When the buyer calls back he can have the IRD activated on his account.Another important issue to note, if you do not call and de-activate your IRD, the buyer can simply plug it into a dish, point it at 91 or 91+82, and get all your subbed channels. Knowing this. it is suprising that Bell will not call previous owners to confirm the sale. The buyer with good intentions, could get frustrated and simply plug the IRD in and enjoy TV, on your tab.
