FWIW, I always tell my clients to cut the cord with their BP's at renewal
time. I have seen too many cases where the renewal letters went to the BP
rather than the end user, and the SWMA's expired.
I could be wrong, but I don't think IBM pays the BP a commission for the
renewals like they do on a new purchase, so why should the BP care?

Subject: IBM BP of record
I was contemplating changing IBM BP when renewing HW maintenance and SWMA.
The BP I'm thinking of going _to_ tells me I can't do that because IBM
won't allow it. I was told the only way to change BP is to buy new
hardware. As long as I have my current HW, I _must_ renew through the BP I
purchased it from.
