dell sells a gobi card, http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/products/Wireless_WiFi/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&s... , that would physically fit in the T400s. Lenovo has qualcomm drivers .
Anyone have an opinion whether this card would work in the t400s? My concern is that it might be "locked" so as to only work wth specific Dell models.
The card provides compatability with multiple carriers such as verizon, AT&T, and others rather than just one carrier. Also could be used with GPS.
I cannot find a version of this card specifically designed for the T400s.
* Note for Lenovo - this would be a sought after option to avail your customers of.

That would be all you would need for a WWAN Upgradeable ThinkPad (orange and blue antenna cables already installed - see the HMM).
A non-Lenovo card like the one you mention would most likely give an 1802 BIOS error "Unauthorized network card".
I have no idea if that card is SIM-locked - maybe someone reading this does?

Thx very much - u really know your way around the site & manuals. That part # is spot-on! A bit steep at $266 delivered with tax. I should have bought the Verizon when ordering! Oh, well.
Help was very much appreciated.
