I got my new ThinkPad X1 this week-end, and I'm also experimenting the SIM card not detected issue.
I understand this could be a manufacturing problem ? Is there a way to know from the serial number if the unit was produced before the problem was fixed ?

I bought my Lenovo ThinkPad X1 (model 1291-26U) several weeks ago in USA and using it in Uzbekistan at the moment. For the last several days I've tried to somehow use the SIM-card slot (by putting SIM-card directly to the slot), installed Access Connections, updated drivers - nothing helped, as if X1 has no integrated SIM-card slot.
Is there any distance solution to my problem (adding some drivers/soft), should I refer to local technical support (if any in Uzbekistan) or any other way? I'll be glad to have your prompt response.

I think it did not have, but I ended up shipping my X1 for repair(to Lenovo), and surprisingly it will take them 2.5months waiting for parts to fix it, so I decided to request it back unrepaired, worst customer care I've ever seen.

I know this is an old post, but for the benefit of others searching how to fix this.
I found a similar post on here https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Lap
I was experiencing all the same problems, with the sim not being detected. works out it was most likely not getting into the correct slot. What I did was take the back cover off, then pushed just under the sim card slot on the motherboard just enough to alow the tray and sim to slide in easily.
Powered laptop back on and sim was detected and connected.
Seems to be a slight hardware design issue, rather than all the driver and software installs people have been trying.
