Re: Thinkpad X240 sim card

jarmonwhaim,

in order to install sim card just insert paper clip into the tray hole. For more details refer the laptop User Guide.
Be sure your laptop has wwan option (wwan card installed)

Re: Thinkpad X240 sim card

If wwan card and its drivers have been installed properly, there should be appropriate, wwan card related item in the Device Manager -> Network Adapters node.

Lenovo approved wwan cards for x240 are:
Sierra Wireless em7355 (Gobi 5000) - 3g/LTE
Sierra Wireless em7345 - 3g/EVDO/LTE
Ericsson n5321 - 3g

Re: Thinkpad X240 sim card

If wwan modem relaited items (known, with drivers, or unknown) are absent in the DM, it means wwan modem hasn't been installed into the laptop. So, get modem from the store and install it yourself. Or contact with Lenovo Authorized Service Provider.

Hi

You have to install the 3rd party connection manager with SMS features, depending on the wwan modem. If the OS is win7, Lenovo Access Connections application supports SMS either. It might work under another OS but the installation of the application needs additional efforts .
