Dish Network is Opt-Out Telemarketing

I just got a telemarketing call on my cellphone from Dish Network trying to sell me on getting Cinemax. I’d cancel it, except my wife digs TV and I don’t have a neighbor I can watch SciFi Friday at.

I just called and changed the contact number to my wife’s cell, and apparently they can enter a note to put it on the do not call list. Sounded to me like she was typing a custom note in a TextBox created for customer wishes that’s saved in some obscure database table.

I’m fixin’ to email them and see if I can get my 2 Cingular rollover minutes back. Maybe Cingular can block the number? This is a business phone so I can’t have telemarketers costing me time and money.
