Looking to purchase on modem time warner

I recently upgraded my internet plan to the ultimate plan and was sent a new Arris T852G modem, but with the new monthly charge I am considering purchasing my own modem. I currently have phone service thru Time Warner as well so I require the eMTA modem and from what I understand my only options are the Arris T852G or T862G modems. However, I have also read that if you have their phone service that you may be required to keep their own eMTA but can still purchase a separate modem. If that is the case then I may be better off purchasing one of the Motorola options SBG6141 or SBG6150. I use my own wireless router for wireless and routing so I don't need those features. I would appreciate it if anyone can help me shed some light on my situation and recommend the best modem to purchase. Thank you in advance for your help.

You can't buy your own eMTA. That's included with the TWC phone service free.

Buy a SB6141 and use your own router.
