What's the slot under the battery

2008-10-03, 22:58 PM

Just received my new T400 yesterday, and was very excited about it.

 

have one question here.  I noticed a place where the battery seven mental pins touch the laptop, under that place, there is a small plastic film with a board card with size similar to a micro-sd card. It has a figure also looks like a SD card (rectange with one corner cut). If I pull the plastic film, the card can also be pulled out, but the film stays in.

 

I can not find this anywhere in the manual. What is that slot suppose to do? I assume it's not the SD card reader, since it's on the left side of the laptop, not hide under where the battery fit in.

 

Thanks.

i think this is the SIM card slot for machine with the WWAN system. If you don't have the WWAN, it is just a dummy slot that doesn't do anything.

I recently bought  a new T400 laptop serial number * and model number 6474V86, I have the SIM card slot but I don't know if I have the WWAN available in my laptop or not.

 

How can I check if I have this service on my laptop or not?
