They only go off when the subscription gets cancelled so read into that what you want it might last for years or might just last for a couple of weeks its safe to use msn and hotmail but not recomended to use your N*L/TW based pop3 mail. When you use a mac off your gateway it will only work properley when the sub is switched off when the legitimet user fires up his modem yours will reboot then as your boots up his will reboot and into the cycle you go its really not recommended to use a mac off your gateway as it will raise suspsion if the paying customer rings up to complain about the problems theyre having and its also not very fair to person paying the bill.
