Hello! For almost a year I am the owner of this laptop! Magnificent and I am very pleased. RAM has increased with the help of your forum, thank you!
When you install the memory pointed out that there is a slot for 3G/GSM/GPS adapter with SIM card. So the question arose, what adapter you can connect without any problems there? Is there any lock in the BIOS?
model - x120e thinkpad without 3g.
At the auctions have seen a lot of cards! But what kind of suit - does not understand. And what better to put, GSM / GPS / 3G? Or better to have separate GSM and GPS card? I would like to GSM+GPS in combination, for better coordination and communication in general And if anyone knows whether strongly affect the energy consumption of a laptop? Thank you!

From looking at the Hardware Maintenance Manual, the following 3G adapter cards are supported:
Integrated Mobile Broadband (Gobi 2000 3G with GPS) FRU # 60Y3183
Integrated Mobile Broadband for Malaysia SKU (Gobi 2000 3G with GPS) FRU # 60Y3259
Integrated Mobile Broadband for Russia SKU (Gobi 2000 3G with GPS) FRU # 60Y3245
Integrated China Mobile Mobile Broadband (Leadcore LC5370D) FRU # 60Y3225
Integrated China Telecom Mobile Broadband (Huawei EM660) FRU # 60Y3227
I believe that the model you require is the first one, but please check with your local Lenovo support to verify this.

Thank you very much! Now a slightly different question is specifically about the gobi:
Is it possible to use the Gobi 2000 marked other notebooks? Third party, such as DELL, HP. Specifically, under the Lenovo is not so easy to find, and counterparts - is on every corner. For example: (from ebay)
Gobi2000 UN2420 HSUPA 3G WCDMA WWAN UMTS WiFi Card GPS
Dell 5620 Gobi2000 Un2420 3G WCDMA WWAN UMTS Card GPS
Or is it better to stick to the recommendations at the Hardware Maintenance Manual. (link, If anyone needed - http://www.overnightpcrepair.com/manuals/maintenance%2520manual%2520x100e-x120e.pdf )
