3G standard on X120e ?

2012-03-29, 11:49 AM

About 9months ago I received my X120e (took some effort, as they are never deliverd in Ireland officially). And never bothered to look for the 3G as I didn't order it (so I thought).

 

Today I decided to clean the inside, so when I opened it up, there where 2 surprises. 1st, the inside was almost perfectly clean. Barely and dust. And as 2nd I saw that there is a SIM-card slot. 

 

In the thinkvantage Connections tab, there is a "Mobile Broadband" option. 

 

I have two questions: 1) does this work with any simcard with mobile broadband enabled, 2) does this work on the European 3G network?

Yes, if there is a Broadband card installed.  Was the Mobile Broadband option selectable or greyed out? (If greyed out, it's unlikely you actually have a card installed)

When you looked under the cover, to the left of the SIM slot, is the slot where the WAN card goes. If there is a card there and the antennas are connected, you do indeed have a Broadband card (the smaller slot on the right is the WLAN card).

 

The card should work with most major carriers without any problem.

Aah ok, the option was greyed out and left to the simcard there was no WAN card. The antennas where disconnected too.

Thank you for the answer.

Subquestion: where can I find the list of suitable cards to make this work?
