Default USB plug repair

Such a simple dilemma, it would seem, but I'm hitting a wall. I have a Novatel U727 USB Broadband Modem.

Thanks to a family pet that will remain nameless, the laptop took a leap. Thinkpad was ok, but the aircard's usb plug is severely bent, almost to the point of being severed. I've googled like a madman in an attempt to find a company that would fix the thing, and have only found one to date. Unfortunately, it took multiple attempts to make contact with anyone after multiple instant messaging and phone calls, so shipping this off to them sigh unseen is a bit unsettling. The last firm suggested I simply buy a new one, but with a list price of almost $300, I don't think so

It's simply a matter of replacing the plug - I just don't have the skills to do it. Anyone know of a good firm who can do this for a reasonable price?

Much thanks!
