With OmniLynx service shutting down - former customers have been told that they do not need to return the 6620L hotspot that they had been sent.
The 6620L is a great hotspot (see our review) - and has been the flagship mobile internet device on Verizon's network for most of the past year.
Getting to keep this hotspot is a wonderful parting gift from the short-lived OmniLynx service - this hotspot new from Verizon is $199 (without contract), and on eBay used models regularly sell for well over $100.
Because the 6620L is a Verizon device - all it takes is an activated SIM to put a 6620L to use on any Verizon plan, whether a traditional Verizon shared data plan, or a grandfathered unlimited data plan.
But what if you don't want to stick with Verizon?
It is actually possible to use a 6620L on T-Mobile or AT&T as well, if you know the right settings changes to make.
And it is not just the 6620L - most Verizon hotspots can be similarly repurposed onto other carriers.
