Unlocked 3G Broadband data card??

Hi Gurus,

 

Is it possible to buy  from lenovo an unlocked 3G Mobile Broadband data card for T400s TP?

 

Is it Qualcomm GOBI Mobile BroadBand Option an unlocked card I can use with any 3G/GSM service provider, globally?

 

Are there any performace differences between AT&T's, Verizon's and Qualcomm?

 

BR.

All the cards Lenovo puts into currently shipping models have unlocked cards.

 

The Qualcomm GOBI card can do either Verizon EV-DO or 3G.

The Ericcson card is 3G only.

Is this still true all Gobi cards ship unlocked?  I am going to purchase a T400s and I noticed that the Gobi cards are different prices for different carriers thus I am suspicious that they are getting locked now.

Hi g27c, 

 

Did you purchase your T400s with the Gobi card?  was it locked or unlocked?

 

Thanks in advance.
