MiFi is a family of devices.

The MiFi 2200 has a reset button to return to factory defaults.

From there, you could activate to your account via WiFi connection.

 

"How do I reset the MiFi device back to factory settings?
The master reset button is in a small hole located on the bottom of the device. This button returns
the device to factory settings, including re-setting the network name (SSID) and network key (Wi-Fi
passkey) to those printed on the sticker affixed to the back of the device.
1. Place one end of an unfolded paper clip in the master reset button hole.
2. Press the paper clip on the button until the Service Status LED blinks green one full blink and
then a very brief blink (about five seconds)."
