Mobile Broadband

2013-04-29, 20:51 PM

In the “Hardware Maintenance Manual” I download for ThinkPad® X230 is pointed out to “Removing the SIM card”. I have also reviewed and I see that it has slot for SIM card.

Model: 23255CG
Serial: xxxxxxx

I also put a SIM card in this slot, but I do not know how can I activate it? Should I install a driver to use GPRS? Apart from the Internet, can it be used for both Call and SMS? Is there any utility to do so?

If you didn't fit mobile broadband card yourself you havn't that card in your laptop from the factory. It's wwan ready only, i.e.has internal wwan antennas and sim card holder.

If you'll decide to buy and insert wwan card you have not to download and launch application from Lenovo site "Mobile Broadband". It's for simless CDMA/EV-DO networks only.

Here are the specs for your laptop (SUPPORT -> Enter "23255CG" in QuickPath):

 

i7-3520M(2.9GHz),4GB RAM,180GB Solid State Drive,12.5in 1366x768 LCD,Intel HD Graphics,Intel 802.11agn,Bluetooth,1Gb Ethernet,UltraNav,Secure Chip,Fingerprint reader,Camera,6c Li-Ion,Win7 Pro 64

 

It doesn't appear to have a modem.  They all (AFAIK) have a SIM slot, whether it's connected or not.
