Re: x1 carbon (20FB) sim card

Hello and welcome, teuton

The clear answer depends on the laptop specification - whether it's equipped by the internal wwan modem, factory or by someone installed.

So, post here, please, the full laptop Machine-Type-Model code, or, if it's a CTO model, provide me, please, its serial number via the forum private messages service (take a look at your profile page).

There isn't wwan modem factory preinstalled in your laptop. But laptop is "wwan ready", i.e.is equipped by sim card slot and wwan antennas set.

Re: x1 carbon (20FB) sim card

Hello, 

after inserting the SIM, there are no pop-ups or other signals from acceptance..

i think i do not have the right modem yet.

where can i buy this and get the proper installation?

 

kind regards,

 

Dries

Re: x1 carbon (20FB) sim card

driesdl,

do you mean x1c 20FB either? Its parts list with FRU # is below
https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/x1_carbon_4th_gen_20fb_%2020fc_20170509.pdf

Unfortunately, IBM/Lenovo on-line spare parts store doesn't work since May 2017. So, call Lenovo support
https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht100750

...or the site below
