Apparently there are quite a few different models of the GOBI 4000, so I wouldn't use that link to the specs that I posted as the definitive listing of what frequencies the Helix version will support.

You're probably better off getting a USB WWAN adapter rather than trying to install a card yourself unless you really know what you're doing.

From what I watched of the repair videos its a mess to even remove the back from the unit.  get a usb or a mifi way simpler.

Just talked to my cdw rep and was going to have him fast track it, but he did not give me any promices.  He did however note that the date for that model was 4/24 so if thats true its only a couple days.  I will report more info as I get it.

Just spoke with our CDW rep. She told me that ship date for my 36984UU is now 5-6-2013 instead of 5-15-2013.

We'll see.

 

Also asked about 36984SU, she said she does not have stock.

I had asked her last week was there any problems with the WWAN models.
She told me today that she spoke with a Lenovo rep and the rep told her that there are no problems with the WWAN models.

My opinion: Lenovo doesn't know about what is going on itself. How in the world can there be so many different statements about a simple laptop!?

 

Somehow and someone is producing, shipping, packing the laptops - but this seems to be somewhere deep inside the Batcave, Neverland or Narnia as they simply appear and disappear within the blink of an eye.

 

 

So has anyone already got his/her WWAN Helix? If so, where did you get it from?
