"3GStore Re-Certified" U720, PX500 & AirCard 595 EVDO Devices Now Available
3GStore.com now carries "Re-Certified" Sprint Novatel U720, Sierra Wireless AirCard 595 and Pantech PX500 PC Cards for immediate purchase. These devices were used by a customer and returned to Sprint during a 30-day trial period for one reason or another, and are in excellent visible and physical shape.
If you have been wanting to upgrade to EVDO Rev-A but have held off because you don't want to pay full retail for a new device or to extend your Sprint contract for another two years, then this new offering from 3Gstore is exactly the solution you have been looking for!
The Novatel U720 was the first Rev-A USB modem Sprint started selling back in November 2006 and was a very popular item, even up to the point Sprint stopped selling it. Unlike the currently available USB offerings, the Sprint U720 does work with the Kyocera KR1 EVDO router.
The Sierra Wireless AirCard 595 is a Rev-A PCMCIA format card that is disappearing from Sprint's current line-up as stock is used up. In our opinion, it is the most robustly built PC Card and has a superior external antenna jack that stands up to a lot of use. The AC595 works great in the Linksys EVDO Router, and will also work well with forthcoming Kyocera KR2 Router.
The Pantech PX500 PC Card was a favorite of many customers primarily because it worked with the venerable Kyocera KR1 EVDO Router as well as the Linksys EVDO Router. The PX500 will also work with the forthcoming Kyocera KR2 Router.
All three of these EVDO devices are great upgrade choices for someone who is still using a slower Rev-0 device like a PC5740 or S620 PC card or a CDU550 USB modem, and wants to upgrade to a faster EVDO Rev-A device for significantly faster speeds and lower connection latency (when used in actual Rev-A coverage areas).
3GStore's re-certification process ensures that the devices have the latest firmware and have fully functional antenna jacks. More importantly, 3Gstore has also checked each device's ESN to ensure that it is clear of all overdue charges, and ready to be added as a new line or a replacement device to any Sprint account. (these devices cannot be used on any other carrier aside from Sprint USA network)
All three recertified devices are immediately available without contract/service for just $129.99 -- much less than full retail for devices like the U727 ($329.99) or the S720 ($269.99).
Purchase the U720 with one of the popular Cradlepoint EVDO routers (CTR350, PHS300, MBR1000) and you can get $50 off the combined price!
Purchase the AirCard 595 or PX500 with the Linksys/Sprint router (or the forthcoming Kyocera KR2) and you can get $50 off the combined price.
Of course, you can also get these re-certified devices with a new service contract. The U720 with 2yr contract is just $40, and the AirCard 595 or PX500 with 2yr contract is just $20!
