Hi Ehab, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

It will help to have the 7-character model type of the T400's, and operating system you are using.

 

Fn-F5 should allow you to see all the wireless devices in the system, and power them on and off.

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.

OK Ehab, let's take a look at the support page for that model:

 

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/quickPath.do?quickPathEntry=6474DV9

 

Since you mention SIM cards I think you're looking for wireless WAN (WWAN), not WiMAX?

 

The 6474-DV9 is WWAN upgradeable i.e. by default it has everything you need, except a WWAN card. Did you add WWAN cards? If so which type? If the drivers are correctly installed any WWAN cards you added should appear in the list when you press Fn-F5.

I guess you are right, am trying to use the WWAN, I can see the SIM port is below the battery is it the card or I shell get anther part also along with this, in case I need the card, how can I get it if it is not available locally.

You need to add a WWAN card.

 

From the Hardware Maintenance Manual, you need the "Ericsson F3507g Other - Wireless WAN card" FRU 43Y6513, but please check that this meets your requirements. Buy one and check it out before buying 50.

 

Here are the Lenovo dealers in Bahrain. If you can't get WWAN cards through them, call Lenovo or try another country which is easily accessible to you.
