If it is the wrong size (too big), you need an adapter from the wireless carrier.

You're trying to put the nano-SIM card in the microSD slot. The nano-SIM slot is #2 in this drawing from the HMM. The other slot is the microSD slot.

There are two types of the trays in the x280' parts list:
- TRAY SIM SD (FRU 01YU004, 01YU006)
- TRAY SD (FRU 01YU005)

Re: ThinkPad X280 , SIM card tray is a wrong from Lenovo . what I can do?

Hi TinX280! Perhaps this will help:

 

You're in one of two situations:

 

  1. 1. You ordered an X280 with the mobile broadband/WWAN option, and somehow got the wrong MicroSD/SIM tray.
    OR
  2. 2. You ordered an X280 without the mobile broadband/WWAN option and are trying to add the option yourself.

In the case of #1, please use your warranty and call Lenovo, and they will happly exchange the MicroSD tray for a MicroSD/SIM tray.

 

In the case of #2, you have a project to complete, since to add mobile broadband to an X280 requires retrofitting the MicroSD/SIM tray, the WWAN card, and the WWAN antennas. I'm not aware of anyone who has done this yet.

 

If you are not sure whether your X280 has the mobile broadband/WWAN option, post the model number here and we will most likely be able to tell you whether it is present.

 

Hope this helps!
