Re: SIM card on thinkpad T450

Hi and welcome, sarko

Could you explain more clearly what's the problem?
Also, what's your laptop Machine-Type-Model (MTM, 10-symbol code, begins with 20BV or 20BU)?

Thanks

Your laptop hasn't wwan card (wwan modem) preinstalled. There are sim card reader and wlan+wwan antennas only.

So, even though you insert the sim card, internet connection via mobile broadband network can't be established.

You can, but you have to purchase and install Lenovo approved wwan modem, for 3G or 3G/LTE networks.

Re: SIM card on thinkpad T450

Dear moderator,

 

I have the same problem with my Lenovo T450. Can you tell me where I can find a Lenovo approved WWAN modem driver?

 

Thank you in advance for your help.

 

Kind regards,

Marc

Hi  Moderator,

 

I have a Lenovo T450 as well. 20BV-000BUS

 

Are you telling me they put a SIM card slot in, but no actual modem?

 

Thanks
