My t430 is supposed to have an integrated mobile broadband. I can not find how to activate and use it. Fn + F5 does not do anything. Please help.

Fn+F5 doesn't show any mobile radios? Have you reinstalled the OS? What OS?

Hi Rich,

Fn + F5 does absolutely nothing. Operating with Win 8.1  Machine came with Win 8 and i upgraded to Win 8.1 when I got this several months ago.

I don't currently have a windows 8.1 machine to look at, but you probably need the hotkey driver:

Easiest would be to run Thinkvantage system update:
