When your account is turned off, the modem's identification is taken off the records that tell the various servers to work with your modem.

It's very automatic and fast.

But the company that will give it service would have to talk to you about that.

There is no hack to pirate or pilfer unpaid access with this.

You might ask why so here it is -> If it was possible then the services would have nothing buy pirates and thieves using it and it would not be long till they shut down.

Hope this helps,
Bob
