Novatel MiFi 2200-still good for anything?

Bought it around a decade ago from Walmart to use with their Internet on  
the Go service-you know, the one that let you buy data as you needed on  
a true pay-as-you-go basis via prepaid cards.  Their oft-repeated  
promise that data, once purchased, would never expire was, of course,  
not kept.  Eventually they ratcheted it down to 60 days before doing  
away with it altogether.  IOTG's successor now requires you to buy a  
hotspot directly from them and only offers monthly service-and calling  
them re my current device and unused cards was a joke.

So much for that.  Anyway, does anyone know if there's still any  
provider out there that I could use this thing on?  It apparently  
doesn't have a SIM card slot, which would make sense as I believe IOTG  
was a Sprint-affiliated MVNO back when I bought it.

Not that I'm really likely to start spending hundreds of dollars a year  
for what would amount to having a backup for my home service in case of  
outages, mind you-but you never know.

Like you, I was a happy IOTG user through a Walmart purchase for several
years. Because the MiFi 2200 was a 3G device and can not use 4G LTE it would
be pretty useless even if Sprint or IOTG still did offer interesting plans.
