When you called to get your new card, what address were you using? Your service address, your billing address, some other address?
I am still in that nervous, limbo state/condition over my new Dish service, if I have understood correctly, that I should not have this service where I am.
I got online to my Dish account and put in a new billing address, which is my mail service address in Nogales. But I have not changed my service address because I am afraid of creating suspicion.
I don't think this "purple card" thing is an issue for me. My service is very new and I peeked in at the card and the end that I can see is black and purple, so I am assuming I have the latest and greatest. As soon as I turn off the TV I will pull the card out and check it. But, there may be other issues, such as this one, where I am going to need to receive something from Dish via US Mail, and I am wondering when I can safely change my service address in my Dish account and not create a problem for myself.
You can only change your service address by calling Dish. There is really no reason nor advantage to doing so. The only reason I know of that would be a good reason would be if you wanted to "timeshift" your programs. If you move to the west coast, your programs are on 2 hours earlier. You give Dish more credit than they deserve. If you would want to change service address, just call and do it. The CSR's don't care. It happens all of the time. As long as you don't change it to Mexico, no issues.
Changing your billing address is all that you need to do if you need the new purple card. Dish statements and mailers will go to this address.
