I use X201 Thinkpad laptop, type 3680.


  1. I would like to know if WWAN card is pre-installed?
  2. If not, would like to know if there is any slot available which provides easy installation?
  3. If the laptop has to be opened, please suggest a link as a guide to install the WWN card.

I apprecite your help.

1. Look at the Device Manager, Adapters item. Or look at the Lenovo support site (http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/default.page?), press "Modify", type in your laptop MTM. If "WWAN" word persists in the short decription it means wwan card shoul be preinstalled. If you'll see "WWAN option" or "WWAN ready" it means laptop has wwan antennas and sim holder only. If you'll not see items as I mentioned above you should install wwan card AND wwan antennas. I'm not sure does the sim reader persist in this case or not.


2. x201 has wwan slot, mini pci-e

3.2. x201 service video isn't loaded on support site. But there is x200 video course, I hope it will helpfull too.
