ThinkPad WWAN Upgradable (model 20HN002VUK)

Hi

 

I recently purchased this prodct.  I need to know what is required to upgrade it for WWAN use (specification states it is upgradable).

 

I know I will need the 4G/Sierra module, however does it come with the antenna already installed?

 

What about the SIM connection/carrier unit?

 

Would like some insight before removing the cover.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi _BM_,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

 

According to MTM, 20HN002VUK laptop is WWAN ready as it has preinstalled WWAN Antenna with it

It supports Micro-SIM card with the carriers of AT&T and Verizon (source)

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Thanks for the input.  I removed the back cover and yes, the cables for the antennae are there.

 

However, I still can't see how the SIM will be mounted.  I am awaiting the delivery of the module, so I will be able to check again then.

Please have a look on this Removing the micro-SIM-card tray, page 64 of the HMM of ThinkPad X270.

Ok, so looks like the SIM socket is there. 

 

My next problem is the module.  I purchased 

 

4XC0L59128 TP SIERRA WIRELESS EM7455

 

FRU 00JT542

 

but this has not been recoginsed in Device Manager.

 

Is this the correct module?

That module is the for older Systems with Skylake processors it will not work with Kabylake processors. You will need either FRU 01AX746 or FRU 01AX748 (source)
