We've only just begun
In my lifetime, I've never had a fully depreciated "free modem" properly credited. But I anticipate it, so the staredown with the quartermaster and accounting is resolved without collections. A certain copper reseller is particularly inept in this regard.
But with the newfound "modem rental fee" price hike, we're going to see a million or two modem returns this year, and a good percentage of them will not be posted properly. I'm rooting for Mr. Himmelstein to prevail; not that he needs a big payday, but the publicity might cause industry to scrutinize their record-keeping habits.
