It was the Riverhead store....I normally pay my OOL bill with my banks bill pay but knew I was going by there today...and a few months ago I had stopped there and asked about swapping my old modem and the girl said to bring it in and they will give me a new one.
So I unplugged mine and took it in there with me to pay my bill and as I was handing it to the girl I asked her if I could get the latest modem they had....And she replied absolutely and went on to say they just got the newest ones in....( don't know if that is true or not )
So she handed me a box with the modem in it, wrote down their local phone number on the box and told me to call if I had any trouble getting online and out the door I went.
It was an extremely pleasant transaction.
The number she wrote down on the box is 727-6300 if you want to call to make sure they have them still in stock before heading to the Riverhead office ( area code 631)
I've had good experiences at the walk-in store in Norwalk, except sometimes there is a wait.
I'm really glad to hear they are at least starting to hand out D3 modems without having to beg. I think it will help everyone. -- NOTHING justifies terrorism. We don't negotiate with terrorists. Those that support terrorists are terrorists.
