I finally got around to putting my Verizon EvDO broadband wireless card up for auction on ebay. Not to sell it, but to rent it. Here’s my first post regarding this idea.

I got several bids and someone won it for $4.25 per day. He’s got it reserved for the end of the month, for about 7 days I believe. (My wife needs it in the beginning of the month for her travels.) So, I’ll net about $30 for that rental period. My cost is $65 a month (I have the insurance plan for $5 a month in addition to the $60 a month service fee.)

I can see this working quite well in the long run. Of course, this is one idea I don’t want anyone else to do since I don’t want TOO much competition out there. 🙂

There you have it, Nev. An update!

  1. Ha! Interesting concept of renting out the card. Good way to recover some of your costs while it’s not being used.

    I was wondering…
    Could you hook up an EvDO card to your laptop, in turn hooking your laptop to a wireless router? This would allow you to setup a wireless network anywhere.

    Thanks for the update!

  2. Hi Nev,

    There are a couple of options for doing this. The most famous one is the Junxion box. Here is the link to their site:

    I will be vacationing in Florida from 12/16/05 until 1/3/06 and I don’t have a phone in my condo. How much would it cost to rent your wireless card to use during this period. I will also need it for about 10 days in February and a few more days during April.

    Please advise. Thank, Jeff Leib

  4. are you still renting out your EVDO card? Interested if it is available. Please PM me.

    Thanks!

  5. Hello,

    I was wondering if you still rent the EVDO service? I’m interested.

    Thanks,
    Don
