Hi Guys My fault I know. But I installed Vista Home Premium. Then found out my bt voyager 105 modem is not compatible with Vista. I contacted my isp Aol who promised to send me a new modem in 5 days fine. My worry now is the 3 day activation how will this effect me when I have the new modem ? Thanks Kopite

You have 30 days to activate it, not 3.

Hi Burr Why does it sat three days to activation if its 30 ? Thanks Kopite

It is 30 days. You can activate by ringing MS as an alternative.

You do get 30 days to activate Vista BUT having installed and activated Vista if it needs to be activated again for some reason you only get 3 days.

Maybe the kopite was reactivating hence the 3 days?

In case you overrun the 30 day activation period, get 120 days before activation click here

"how will this effect me when I have the new modem ?"

Items such as Modems don't affect Activation.
