WWAN on Thinkpad X380 Yoga

My wife received last month the laptop in the object (italian version) as PC for working, but she can't understand if it support the SIM for mobile data; looking in the datasheet it seems it have the WWAN module but I can't find nothing on the configuration tool and inserting a SIM I don't have any response.

Re: WWAN on Thinkpad X380 Yoga

Welcome to the forum.


Some ThinkPad models are shipped "WWAN ready." This means that although they have a SIM card slot and WWAN antennas installed, they don't have a WWAN card installed. Check if this is the situation with the X380 that your wife received.


If so, then you will have to get a WWAN card installed in this system in order for the SIM to be recognized and for the WWAN feature to be used.
