I have a red rocket stick for sale ( Never Used ).. I paid $150 something at 
future shop for a novatel 2-3 months ago. Hoooked it up to rogers network, 
it broke a month later. I called rogers to send me a  new one which they did 
( the little red one ), I lost my job, and can no longer afford it. Make me 
an offer.
