Can not use SIM card on Lenovo x380 Yoga (Windows 10)

2018-11-12, 10:56 AM

Hello,

 

I have a Thinkpad x380 Yoga (running Windows 10) which has a SM card slot but I can't seem to see the SIM card on my network devices once I insert it. I have downloaded and installed all the WAN drivers from lenovo support center. 

 

Anyone with any ideas??

 

Cheers!

Hi,

 

I have to ask: does your laptop have a WWAN card installed?  Typically ThinkPads have the SIM slot even if they don't have WWAN hardware installed.

Check the network adapters in device manager.

 

As a double-check, what is your laptop's MT-M (like 20LH000WUS as a random example of a US model) ?  We may be able to call up the laptops specs with the MT-M.

Machine info on the support page does not show a WWAN capability.
