ThinkPad x230t / Tablet sim issue

2019-03-08, 22:50 PM

In my X230 Tablet I have an Ericsson F5521GW Wan card installed and I have tried various different sim cards, but to no avail.
In the network settings it says Insert SIM. I'm not sure if I am inserting the SIM card in a wrong orientation or if the slot itself is faulty or if the wan card is faulty. I have been trying to google this issue for a while now but can't seem to find the answer anywhere. Even using the manual for this model did not work.


Below you can see that all neccessary drivers have been installed correctly.


 The sim card is not detected by the system no matter what I try. I hope someone can help me out on this.

Hi BIZKIT551! Welcome to our forums community. Sorry for the delay. Have you tried other SIM cards? This will help us isolate if the SIM slot works. The SIM card slot can be found at the bottom of the device. Please refer to the photo below.



You can also try reinstalling the WWAN driver here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-tablet-laptops/thinkpad-x230-tablet/downloads/driver-list/component?name=Networking%3A%20Wireless%20WAN. Update us how it goes.
