A thread today re BT calling for the modem when you cancel prompts the question 'whose is it?'. I got a free one from AOL, so if it's free, it's mine,right? If you've bought one from BT, it's yours, right?
I was with AOL for more than 3 years and have kept the broadband modem as it is now legally mine. I had tremendous problems getting online and the AOL support was crap!! I have now switched to Onetel and am using Mozilla Firefox as my internet browser and Thunderbird as my e-mail system. Best things I could have done.
