Re: Webcam and wwan card for X220

I assume you mean where can you get the spare parts to add to an existing X220 without them?


I think you might find a WWAN card on an auction site (search for F5521gw, though these cards have also had some problems - search on this forum). You should also check whether the 3G antenna is already built-in to your X220 - it may only be those that were shipped as "3G upgradable" have one.


Note you can't install a WWAN card if you already have an mSATA SSD drive (as they use the same slot).


IIRC there is also a restriction that you can't have the webcam if you have the 3x3 antenna for wifi (I forget the exact details - the Lenovo cart correctly stopped you ordering that combination) but I don't know if a 3x3 can be converted into a 2x2 or whether it's a separate part.


You'll probably want to spend some researching this to make sure you don't end up buying something you can't use...

The WWAN antenna should be in cause based on FRU 04W1409 (Wireless LAN/WAN antenna kit)

Webcam is part FRU 04W1364

WWAN is 60Y3257 or 60Y3277 depending on your region.

Just make sure you purchase the compatible FRU as there is a whiltelist in BIOS level which disable any WWAN cards which are not compatible.
