X1 Yoga gen 6 with Quectel EM120R-GL 4G LTE CAT12 activated on Verizon?

2021-08-19, 13:34 PM

Does anyone have the X1 Yoga gen 6 with the Quectel EM120R-GL 4G LTE CAT12 WWAN modem activated on Verizon?

The Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 does not, and I don't want to go through the process and find out that the laptop won't activate with this modem either.

Well good news on this...I can confirm the the Quectel EM120R-GL 4G LTE CAT12 works on Verizon.  I took the sim card out of my Ipad Pro and put dropped into the X1 Yoga G6, and it connected to Verizon right away with no issues....

Hello michele654,

 


Greetings

 

 

WWAN feature is configured during order process.
There are some machines configured differently depending on the region, as well as available service providers.

Thank you for your response Lorenzo.  That doesn't answer my question though.

 

After researching that the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 modem is in use on Verizon's network, I purchase a laptop with that modem.  Verizon then said that the device (my Lenovo laptop) could not be activated on their network.

Therefore, before I try again with the other modem, I would like someone with personal experience to respond that Yes, they activated the Quactel modem on the Verizon network.

Hi michele654,

 

What are Verizon saying about the Quectel modem? Do they claim support? After all they are the final arbiters of this.

 

One would think that if they don't support the Qualcomm as they have told you, they must support Quectel, otherwise how are they ever going to support their X1Y6 customers?

 

Another explanation could be just timing, that they have not yet certified the modems.

 

Just some ideas! I'm using the X1C9 Qualcomm modem on AT&T.

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

I haven't bothered to ask, because if you ask "Do you support Qualcomm Snapdragon X55, Verizon",  the answer is Yes.  But not in the Lenovo X1 Yoga device.

I'm not sure Verizon ever asks "How will we support our X1 Yoga Gen6 customers?" to care one way or the other if they support one of the modems that is offered. 

 

Thanks for your feedback, AT&T does not reach my home, my only choice is Verizon, and I need to confirm if Verizon will activate before I go through this again.

 

For comparison, when looking at an HP X360 1040, when you select one of the modems it offers a SIM for one of three vendors, giving me clear information that it supports those vendors.

I should have an answer later this week.  I ordered with  Quectel EM120R-GL 4G LTE CAT12 and it is on the way (sitting in Korea presently) I will let you know when I get and try to activate on Verizon.

It looks like my new Thinkpad Yoga is stuck in Korea with UPS, so I won't be able to report on the Quectel activation on Verizon until at least next week :(
