Good day and welcome to the community.

 

What is the FRU part number listed on the card's label?

 

Regards.

Also, I made kind of strange discover... I got 'old' T410 laying around and I pulled out GOBI 2000 card from it. GOBI 2000 didn't cause 1802 error on x230t or t420s even it should not be whitelisted. Though I was unable to actually find apn with it when it was installed to X230T (Works on T410)

Ericsson H5321gw is intended for X230 non-tablet, F5521gw for X230 tablet. Check the matrix http://www.lenovo.com/support/wireless

 

As for F5521gw you might experience random disconnection issue, the solution is here
