Whenever new or improved technology becomes available, folks who own older equipment often wish there was a way they could exchange their now-outdated products for the latest and greatest models. Usually, these folks are out of luck and stuck with their old gear, but not this time! 3Gstore is offering a special trade-in program for our customers who purchased a KR1, KR2, MB8000, MB6800, MB6000, Linksys WRT54G3G or WRT54G3GV2-ST - send us your "clunker", and we'll give you a credit to use towards a brand new Cradlepoint MBR1200!

What is the Cradlepoint MBR1200, and why do I want to trade my clunker for it?

Cradlepoint MBR1200With its three USB ports, ExpressCard and PCMCIA slots (it's the ONLY Cradlepoint router that supports PCMCIA cards!), the MBR1200 officially supports more 3G and 4G modems than any other cellular router. The MBR1200 is also the first cellular router to offer a built-in four-port ethernet switch that offers not just 10/100 speeds, but also 1000mbp/s LAN connectivity (a.k.a. "gigabit ethernet"). It also features a huge wireless range, thanks to its built-in wireless "N" radio, and you can even increase that range with optional external WiFi antennas. 

The MBR1200 is a great solution for many 3G and 4G mobile broadband users, and for folks with PCMCIA cards, it's truly the BEST option on the market! To learn more about the MBR1200, click here to read our full review.

How much can I save by trading in my "clunker"?

The Cradlepoint MBR1200 has an MSRP of $299.99. During the "Cradlepoints for Clunkers" program, 3Gstore will be offering up to $150 off MSRP when you trade in your eligible "clunker" router. Below is a list of the eligible routers and the price you can get on the MBR1200 when you trade yours in:

Trade-in Model Your MBR1200 Price
Kyocera KR1 $199.99
Kyocera KR2 $199.99

Top Global MB6000 $199.99
Linksys WRT54G3G $199.99
Linksys WRT54G3GV2 $199.99

Your old router does not have to be in good condition, or even functional! As long as your router model is on the above list and you purchased it from 3Gstore, you can trade it in for a discount on the MBR1200! Please note that ONLY customers who purchased their clunker from 3Gstore (formerly can participate in this program.

Sounds great! How can I take advantage of this offer?

Once 3Gstore has verified that your clunker is eligible for trade-in, you'll have two options: you can choose to mail in your clunker first and then purchase the MBR1200 at the discounted price once we receive it, or you could choose to purchase the MBR1200 at full price and 3Gstore will issue a credit back to your credit card for the difference in price when we receive your clunker (this is a good option for folks who are still using their clunkers and don't want to be without a router while they wait to receive the MBR1200). To get started, email clunkers (at) with your invoice number.
