Hi and welcome there.. 

known a  user who got 3G working in S12 ION ....with  Huawei UMTS Modul EM770  in conjunction with a self layered antenna.. 

SE 3507 could be one possible 3 G  and

Gobi2000

 

But Sierra mc 8775  will not work... 

 

sincerely KalvinKlein

thanks for reply, with the card you suggested was it just a matter of plug and play? install the card, antenna and drivers and away you go?

 

the bios accepted this and no changes were needed?

 

thanks
