Following Bell’s lead, Canada’s Rogers Wireless has issued a recall notice for the Novatel Wireless MiFi 2372 Rocket mobile hotspot on account of its faulty battery. Novatel will be sending Rogers MiFi owners a pre-addressed and pre-paid envelope so they can send in their device to have it replaced. According to Rogers, Novatel will have the MiFi back in the customers hands within 7 to 10 business days of receiving the device. It doesn’t look like Rogers will be giving their customers a Rocket stick to make up for the temporary loss of mobile data, although credits will be given for the time the MiFi is out of action. Anyone with questions or comments is asked to callĀ 1-866-511-5311.
