Gobi 2000 modem with X120e

2011-06-06, 11:56 AM

Hey guys, I'm planning on buying an X120e when I visit the US next month (for some strange reason they're not selling it in Europe at all). I'm interested in the mobile broadband modem option, but $125 is too much for me to pay at this moment, and I'm not sure whether it'll be locked to US networks. I would therefore like to buy the Gobi 2000 or 3000 later on from eBay and use it in the laptop. Would this work fine on O2 or Three UK, or would I run into some odd issues?

I do not know if it will work, but when you look for a replacement 3G modem, make sure it has the Lenovo/IBM part number on that is listed in your X120e's Hardware Maintenance Manual as a generic OEM one might not work with the X120e.
