Thank you for your words of confidence. How soon is "soon"? It has been over a month since your comment and I was just wondering what Lenovo's time scales are when saying "soon". This month? Next year?

I think you will appreciate that there are a lot of decidedly annoyed people out there, me being one, and rightly so since it's obviously a feature that was once before and no longer.

Is this just not being seen as a priority?

 

Thanks for your comments.

 

Regards

Re: Access Connection SMS Menu disappeared!!!!

Come on Lonovo's developer team.... This is the priority in the Business world, if not the top priority... I would rather long for this than Lenovo Toolbox...

 

It's been like 6 months time just for a very basic features... which I think it costs much less time than developing something like Toolbox!!! it WAS there before!!!

Re: Access Connection SMS Menu disappeared!!!!

I today received a call from the Lenovo Support.

They have information hat this feature is currently not supported. Furhtermore there is NO information when this feature will be avaible and if so!!!!

Basically the sound from this call was, that there is information if this feature will come some day.

this is a Sony OneClick Internet connection manager for Gobi 2000. Tested SMS and it works perfect.

Only small issue is that WWAN radio stays on even if you turn it off using Fn+F5 (at least on x201) but again, that is a small price to pay.

Awesome. Just downloaded and tested and it works great!

I have the X201 tablet and the Fn+F5 WLAN switch still works fine.

 

THANKS very much!

frcko.

WOW!!!

thanks so much for this valuable hint .... i can SMS again.

 

this also pretty much settles which brand will be my next laptop ... it will be a sony :-)

 

on my computer (W500, 64bit ultimate) the FN+F5 continues to work perfectly, and also access connections is still working fine.

 

thanks again frcko!

 

and lenovo ... go stand in the corner and feel ashame for your lousy lousy engineering!
