Unlocked 3G Broadband data card??

2009-09-30, 14:07 PM

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.

Thanks in advance.
