SIM Card does not work on ThinkPad X1 (Gen6)

2018-04-11, 13:53 PM

Hello there, people on the internet,

 

I just received the SIM-card for my new ThinkPad X1 today and inserted it into the SIM slot (and definitely not the micro-SD-slot). After booting into Windows, I checked my offered network connections since apparently the Network of my cellular provider should now show up - it didn't. So I reinstalled the WAN drivers and rebooted, just to make sure there was no problem with that. Still nothing. Now I'm wondering what I can do to fix this problem.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Which model do you have?

In my understanding there are no models of X1 Carbon 6th gen or Yoga 3rd gen with LTE available yet.

Even if there is the sim card slot you can not upgrade to LTE in future because no antennas are built in.

Enter your model number and look for column WWAN far right.

Unfortunately, my product number is not in the database. I was baffled at first but I guess it's because I have the campus edition. So for now I can't find a conclusive answer to the question. The product number is 20KGS03900. From my quick research, however, you seem to be right and the laptop does not have the necessary hardware.
