I have a 1 gig contract with Vodacom. It ran from 06/02/2007 and currently it is still active on a month to month basis. (I have not renewed the contract). I had a hardware failure on the Huawei E220 modem (which I received with the contract) on the 21/12/2007. the modem was replaced and last week after upgrading firmware and software the modem stopped working. I took it into Vodacom and was informed that the 24 month warranty period cover the initial 24 months of the contract (06/02/2007 - 05/02/2009) and not the modem that was replaced (21/12/2007 - 20/12/2009). I would have thought that the warranty referred to the modem and not the contract. Please confrim. Thanks.
