I have issues with cnnecting to 3G (or even 2G) network after updating to ICS. almost all of the time, my TPT cannot connect to the 3G network even though my signal indicator shows 4 bar (max signal but almost always with no intenet connection)
At first I thought this was a network problem, but when i use the card in othe android device, there's nothing wrong with the network. Resetting the tablet, using airplane mode, turning off/on mobile network, exchange sim cards, did not work. and for unknown reason, there are few times (under 10) that TPT will connect to the network.
Can anyone (especially from lenovo) help me? Do you need me to send the logs?
I'm using ROW version with the 3 network in Indonesia.

I have to agree with you. I've been holding my tongue about all the shortcomings and the unacceptable delays in rolling out fixes/updates.
Having had a great experience with my Thinkpad X200T Tablet PC, I went all out and got the 64GB Slate with 3G. With accessories and tax, it cost over $1200.
It's coming up to one year since I purchased the slate and I'm still unable to use this device to its fullest potential.
A couple of months ago, I actually purchased an iPad 3 (with 4G) and I have to say that it works flawlessly. However, without proper pen input, it's more for liesure than work. Now, if Lenovo could have had to pen input working properly and have a high resolution retina-like display, that would be the ultimate slate. Of course, the 3/4G has to work as well.

My 3G TPT connects with no problem whatsoever (sorry to brag). I'm on Telstra which uses the 850Mhz frequency. This is with the ROW version of the OS.
So, I'm not sure you can blame the software as I get the impression there's only one ROW version which I'm sure Singapore gets and think Canada too.
Which means it's more likely either the WWAN card or your carrier. My TPT has the Erricson F5521gw card ... does yours? Bear in mind that while it's a quad-band card, it doesn't cover all of the commonly used 3G frequencies.
Also, mine didn't work straight away and I had to ring Telstra to get them to configure some things their end. Data plans here are by default set up for USB modems which for some reason authenticate differently (apparently) to PC cards. After a few tweaks all was well. Perhaps the same approach might work for you guys.
