Unlocking my WWAN Verizon Sierra wireless 1xEV-DO card for worldwide access - Possible ?

2008-07-10, 1:11 AM

Hi,

 

Everytime i buy an electronic toy i try to get the best from it,

and thanks to many independent developers like xda or cdfreaks and many others i get that.

 

So i was wondering if someone knows how to unlock this antenna, i bought my computer with this WWAN built in antenna but i'm wondering how can i use it with my local cellular internet provider.

 

thinkpad tablet X60 6363 WDK 

 

I know that is not a question of hardware but of software, i have the sim input under the battery.

 

Hope someone can help me with this doubt. 

 

Greetings and joy  :D

Welcome to the forum.

 

There is no way of unlocking a Verizon card, like there is no way of unlocking a Verizon cell phone.

 

The card may work in certain areas outside of U.S. but since you haven't stated your location, I'm afraid I can't be more specific than I am at present until you do.

 

Hope this helps. 

Cheers,

George

You should be more concerned about getting the "1802 error" after installing a card that wasn't approved by IBM/Lenovo...

 

PCMCIA and USB slots may be your only way out...

 

Good luck.

Cheers,

George
