[CDV] Motorola SBV6220 support for CDV...

Even though the Motorola SBV6220 telephony DOCSIS 3.0 modem isn't on the approved list, would it work with Comcast telephony service in the Chicago area? I currently have Blast level service and an Arris TM502, which isn't listed for Blast, and I've been thinking of just going out and buying my own modem, but I also have CDV. Would the SBV6220 work?

the only modem you can buy is an arris from select local best buy stores...

NO OTHER MODEM YOU BUY WILL BE ABLE TO BE ACTIVATED.

Just to expand;

The current consensus is that the only customer-owned telephony modem approved by Comcast is the Arris TM722G, which you must purchase from your local Best Buy (if available) that has a Comcast Communications Center/kiosk. About $150 for the modem plus professional installation. Some stores/areas will allow a "self install". Those may supply a kit that looks like this;

Also be advised that some market areas do not allow customer owned eMTA's at all. It's best to call in a see what your market area's policies are.
