X61s with WWAN - Outlet Store - Internationally

2008-04-02, 15:40 PM
Hi,
 
I ordered a X61s from the Lenovo Outlet Store with a WWAN card.
The lenovo.com site mentioned that the WWAN in the X61's is a Verizon CDMA2000 Card.
Does this mean that it will not work with Vodafone UMTS in Germany? If it does..where and how do I unlock it?
 
THANK YOU ALL!

Hi:
 
Your CDMA2000 wireless card will not work in Europe or Asia.  You need a GSM/UMTS card.
 
Good luck.

It will work only with a HSDPA (MC8775) card, approved by Lenovo with a Lenovo FRU# on it, the part list is found here:

if you want to install a non approved by Lenovo card which would also be unlocked (could be found on Ebay, you may want to read this:

The solution is there,

 

Good luck!
