PostPosted: Tue Oct 31, 2006 2:06 pm    Post subject: Buying Motorola VT2442 Reply with quote Back to top

My problem is that my Linksys RTP300 adapter went kaput (maybe due to voltage fluctuations) and hence I have been thinking of buying a Motorola VT2442 adapter.

In this I have 2 questions:

1) Ebay: I have read through the topic "If you are thinking of buying a Vonage device off ebay then don't" (http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic14928-0-asc-0.html). Is this still relevant? I'm not able to see the particular guide mentioned in ebay, but I found another which says swapping the MAC address is possible:

http://reviews.ebay.com/Selling-or-Buying-Your-Vonage-Router-on-eBay_W0QQugidZ10000000001691286?ssPageName=BUYGD:CAT:-1:LISTINGS:2

Also I'd like to know if such a swap is possible if the original owner has cancelled their account and have no pending charges towards the same?

2) If the above option is not feasible at all, then is there any other place (other than Vonage itself) where I can buy the Motorola VT2442? I'm seeing that it costs about $80, but I see no other places offering it. I can see discounts on all other routers offered on sites like Best buy, Circuit city, Target etc. But I cannot find VT2442 at all.

Thanks in advance, for all your help Smile.

When did you acquire your RTP300.

Vonage used to have only a 90 day warranty.

I convinced Vonage & they now have a one year warranty on all products they sell.

And, in answer to eBay purchased Vonage devices, Vonage will not permit a device to operate for anyone other than the original purchaser, despite what a seller on eBay may tell you.

I bought my RTP300 in April 2006. I called up tech support and after the routine of asking me try every step and it not working, they said they can't help me. They didn't say anything about replacement.

I got the device directly from Vonage and I didn't buy any warranty for it. So does this 1-year-warranty apply to me?

Yes, your Vonage warranty is valid until April, 2007 if you purchased in April, 2006.

They will send you a replacement and delay billing for 14 days for you to return the defective unit.

However, you have to pay return shipping (I recommend w/delivery confirmation).

Thanks a lot! You sir have been a great help Smile. I really didn't know about a replacement at all.

Just one more question. In this case will the replacement be an RTP300 again? Will it me possible for me to ask for a VT2442 as replacement? Or upgrade to it, if it costs more?

they will most likely ship you the same model of the device you have now, unless they have stopped production on the RTP300.

The Vonage site terms and conditions (http://www.vonage.com/features_terms_service.php?lid=footer_terms) say:

Quote:

4.5 Device Warranties (Does Not Apply to Business Plus Customers).

(a) Limited Warranty. Except as set forth herein, if you received a Device from us and the Device included a limited warranty at the time of receipt, you must refer to the separate limited warranty document provided with the Device for information on the limitation and disclaimer of certain warranties. Remedies for breach of any such warranties will be limited to those expressly set forth in such documentation.
(b) No Warranty. IF A LIMITED WARRANTY DID NOT COME WITH YOUR DEVICE, YOU ARE ACCEPTING THE DEVICE "AS IS". YOUR DEVICE IS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR REPLACEMENT, REPAIR OR REFUND AFTER THE MONEY BACK GUARANTEE PERIOD.
(c) Retail Customer Limited Warranty. For Retail Customers only, we will provide a limited warranty on the Device as to manufacturing defects only for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase. This Retail Customer limited warranty does not apply to any defect or failure other than a manufacturing defect, and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, does not apply to any defect caused by damage in transit, retailer handling or Retail Customer handling. A Retail Customer's sole remedy for any breach of this Retail Customer limited warranty is to obtain a repaired or replacement Device, by following the return procedures set forth in Section 2.10. Retail Customer must include with the returned Device a letter stating that the Retail Customer is returning the Device for warranty repair or replacement and stating the nature of the defect. The Retail Customer limited warranty will also apply in lieu of the limited warranty included with the Device if such included limited warranty is less favorable to Retail Customer than that contained herein.
(d) Disclaimer. OTHER THAN WARRANTIES AS TO THE DEVICE EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THE DOCUMENTATION PROVIDED WITH THE DEVICE AND THE RETAIL CUSTOMER LIMITED WARRANTY EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS OF THE DEVICE FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT OR ANY WARRANTY ARISING BY USAGE OF TRADE, COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR ANY WARRANTY THAT THE DEVICE OR ANY FIRMWARE OR SOFTWARE IS "ERROR FREE" OR WILL MEET CUSTOMER'S REQUIREMENTS. THE FOREGOING WILL NOT BE DEEMED TO LIMIT ANY DISCLAIMER OR LIMITATION OF WARRANTY SET FORTH IN THE DOCUMENTATION PROVIDED WITH THE DEVICE. DEVICE WARRANTIES DO NOT APPLY TO BUSINESS PLUS CUSTOMERS.


There was no warranty mentioned at all when I received the device. And the money back guarantee period is only 1 month. Are you sure the replacement is applicable to me? This was the reason why I thought it wasn't applicable Sad.

PostPosted: Tue Oct 31, 2006 4:18 pm    Post subject: Warranty Information Reply with quote Back to top

All Tier II Tech Agents were advised that the Warranty period had been extended due to the number of people that were cancelling service who only had their devices less than one year.

If a non-us call center gives you a hard time, ask to be transfered to the US call center, Tier II Technical Support.

The RTP300 is only available if Vonage has recertified units in stock. I have no way of knowing which ones Vonage has in stock.

Support will know.
