Can not use SIM card on Lenovo x380 Yoga (Windows 10)

Hello,

 

I have a Thinkpad x380 Yoga (running Windows 10) which has a SM card slot but I can't seem to see the SIM card on my network devices once I insert it. I have downloaded and installed all the WAN drivers from lenovo support center. 

 

Anyone with any ideas??

 

Cheers!

Hi BlitzBM! Welcome to our forums community. Have you tried using other SIM? Have you tried inserting the same SIM card to other device? If yes, did it work? Let us know

Hi,

 

I have to ask: does your laptop have a WWAN card installed?  Typically ThinkPads have the SIM slot even if they don't have WWAN hardware installed.

Check the network adapters in device manager.

 

As a double-check, what is your laptop's MT-M (like 20LH000WUS as a random example of a US model) ?  We may be able to call up the laptops specs with the MT-M.

Machine info on the support page does not show a WWAN capability.
