I need another (3rd) modem. A few people here are using the US Robotics
Courier V Everything as they are so rock solid. I was going to get another
one until I rang their tech support to ask a question. Seems that unless
your modem is less than 3 months old you have to pay $25 to speak to a
technician, if there is a fault with your modem they will refund it. Now I
have had great support in the past. My power pack died and they sent me a
new one for free, but this new policy just irks me.
Anyone recommend another modem what works well with mgetty (ob linux)? I
really want it to support a last call info dump ATI7 like the vEverthing
does. Something with good tech support. Or should I just stick with the
VEverything. Am I being weird being anoyed by such a support policy? They
must get a lot of nutters with winmodems asking why they can't get 56k all
Um ... ponder ...
