GOBI 3000 on W530 - Connecting to Other Wireless Networks (or Network Locked to Sprint/Verizon???)

2014-07-30, 7:02 AM

Hi all


I've been trying to activate the Gobi 3000 in my W530 for the past couple of days.  Although I have installed the drivers and I am able to see the "Mobile Broadband Connection" in network properties, it seems to be locekd to Verizon or Sprint (deponding on which OS I boot into) and I can't find anywhere to change this, even though I have a SIM card from the local telco (Telkom Mobile in South Africa). 


Can someone please explain how to go about doing this? 


The Gobi 2000 in my W510 was simply a few clicks, but this seems to be a whole different can of worms.
