Q: Thinkpad Yoga 260 WWAN

Hello,After purchase my Thinkpad Yoga 260 I've tried to connect with a 3g operator through the side slot (wich costed me an extra) just to discover that my laptop doesn't have a WWAN module. Now I need to know if my laptop as the possibility to add one (wich I hope so because it was one of the main reason why i bought it) anyone knows how to? Anyway it's very hard to me to understand why give me the choice to assembly it with the slot if there's no way to use it.

Is the WWAN slot on the side of my new Thinkpad Yoga 15 just for show?  I cannot seem to find out anything.  What kind of SIM card does it take?  What carriers would support it?  What would I tell a cellular carrier I need in order to buy service and plug a SIM card into it.  There seemto be as many SIM card types as there are snowflakes.   What is my IMEI number?  How do I find it?  I know I sound like a dweeb, but I'm really interested in being able to use this feature if in fact it is not just for show.  It would be SO nice to have anywhere cellular service when I travel.

A:WWAN on Thinkpad Yoga 15

Hello and welcome,
 
Not all TP Yogas have WWAN capability.  Most laptops and convertibles have a SIM slot since that's part of the basic structure of the machine but it doesn't necessarily mean there's a WWAN card installed.
 
What's your MT-M (machine type-model)?  It will look something like 20DQ007YUS - an example which doesn't have a WWAN card installed.

Does anyone have a 1st gen X1 Yoga that is cellular ready? Mine has been nothing but trouble.  Bought laptop at Microsoft Store in Stanford Shopping Center with my son on 1/7/17. I was told by sales person that the ThinkPad was cellular ready. Well, after spending two days on the phone with customer service at Microsoft, Lenovo, and Verizon I have learned that Microsoft's sales person lied to me about the X1 being cellular ready, Microsoft's extended warranty is worthless, Lenovo tech support and Verizon tech support know nothing about this machine or how it works. I spent 3 hours Monday and 5 hours Tuesday with tech support from each and no one has resolved my problem. After reading a few posts, I discovered that lenovo sells these with sim slots even though they are not cellular ready. What is the purpose of having a sim slot then? This is fraudulent. I'm returning the computer at Microsoft Store.

A:Thinkpad X1 Yoga (1st Gen, Oled) WWAN lie by Microsoft and Lenovo.

Good day and welcome to the community.
Sorry you're having difficulty.
 
In my personal experience, a ThinkPad that is described as cellular/broadband-ready has meant that it had a SIM card slot and that it had the appropriate broadband antennae installed, but did not have a WWAN card installed. That is left to the purchaser to do. One exception (there may be others) to that would be when a purchaser configures a ThinkPad on the Lenovo sales site, and selects the optional WWAN card. That machine would come as cellular/broadband-equipped, requiring only the customer's SIM card.
 
Again, this is my personal experience.
 
Regards.

HiI have a Thinkpad 450s with a WWAN card in it and have been using 4g quite a lot. It turned out that when my computer was on and connected to 4g it blocks phonecalls for my phone as i use a twin simcard with my phone. I thought it could have something to do with my drivers for the WWAN card, but when i downloaded the sierra software and drivers my 4g stopped working and the WWAN card seems to have dissapeared from everything, even the device manager. i tried uninstalling the software, but that didn't help.

Hello! I was inquiring into buying a Lenovo X260, and one of the main reasons I was interested was because it has a SIM card slot. I have Project Fi, and was interested in using a data only SIM card for the laptop. Project Fi is compatable with Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular networks, and I wanted to ask if anyone had any experience using the sim card slot with any of these networks or perhaps even a Project Fi sim.

Hello! I just buy X1Y without WWAN-modem, because I don't really need it for now, and try to use empty WWAN M.2 slot for SSD like I did with all my previous Thinkpad's - so I install Transcend TS256GMTS400 that perfectly works at my previous Thinkpad Yoga 12... but SSD does not apper at BIOS! At "BIOS - Boot priority" there are some empty device named "NVMe0" - because of absent of external NVMe ports and present of Samsung SSD as different device at M.2 2280 slot, its possible can be support for NVMe-PCIE SSD at that WWAN-slot... but I can not find any SSD M.2 2242 NVMe at all world...  Also I dont find any WWAN-antennas near WWAN-slot. Also because of gluided Yoga touch screens its unpossible to install WWAN-antennas by user without waranty lose. So it seems that X1Yoga's that sell's without WWAN-modems does not support WWAN-modems at all! So after all those problems it seems that at all configurations of Thinkpad X1 without WWAN-modem this WWAN-slot is absolutely useless!!! PS Also X1 have flimsy soiled case, loud keybord and a specially very loud touchpad buttons and trackpad buttons!  Does Thinkpad X1 with such problems are really premium device?!?!?!  Any suggestions for WWAN-SSD?!

A:ThinkPad X1 Carbon WWAN Upgrade Question

Hi, VMarcoUnfortunately Gobi 3000 card you have isn't compatible with X1C Gen 2:- mechanically as it is in the mini pci-e formfactor vs new m.2 formfactor (formerly NGFF) new X1C supports;- logically as your card isn't approved by Lenovo to use in new X1C, it isn't whitelisted for that so as result laptop with that card will be blocked.There are several wwan options for X1C Gen 2 depend of the carrier you'll work with and the speed of wwan access you need:1. Ericsson N5321, HSPA+ 21Mbps:, FRU 04W38422. Gobi 5000 (Sierra Wireless em7355), LTE/EVDO/HSPA+, FRU 04W38012a. the same as item #2., with SIM sku, FRU 04X60383. Sierra Wireless em7345, LTE/HSPA+, FRU 04X6014IMHO the best choice is item #3:- supports both networks class 3g and LTE- supports frequency bands and network carriers almost worldwide, European as well as US (LTE Verizon, AT&T, Sprint)em7345 supports win8/8.1 natively w/o 3rd drivers. For win7 new drivers should be published soon officially. The only lack  there isn't a soluton for card activation within Verizon network yet. Lenovo and Verizon know about that and work for the solution.

Hi Guys,First off, thank you for this very wonderful resource. Now, I will try to make this short and simple and hope someone can help me out.I currently am using a T430s which I ordered a Sierra MC7550 (GOBI 4000) mini PCI card for to have internet (4G) on the go via verizon.I followed all instructions and installed the card without any issue. I booted the notebook and notice a little popup in my tool tray that said the hardware was not successfully installed. I then tried using System update to install the driver which seemed to have installed everything successfully. I opened my network connections and still didn't see the new device so I decided to open up device manager and saw that something was wrong.The MC7750 was listed under "Other devices" instead of "Networking" and had the yellow exclamation point next to it.Currently the exact error is as follows:The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)There is no driver selected for the device information set or element.To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.I tried manually downloading/installing the driver from Lenovo's site, using System update, manually pointing to the downloaded driver's path and nothing seems to fix it.I am hoping someone could help me here. I'm not sure if this is Lenovo branded or not however I'm not getting any BIOS errors upon boot.

It installed and I was able to see it in my device manager under Network adapters.I'm not sure if its fully working yet because I had no idea I needed a sim card.. I thought i could just call up verizon with my IEMI number and have it activated... either way I consider this one step closer and it leads me to believe that something is up with the driver download from LENOVO. Also, could I buy a prepaid Verizon sim card and use it in here or? IF this works fully and flawlessy, I hope this helps someone to prevent them from going through what I went through. Hopefully Lenovo updates their drivers.*** I ask that you guys still kindly reply to let me know if I am missing something here. Thanks.

A:No WWAN capability for Yoga 260?!

Hello TD22, welcome to the community,
 
The user guides are generic and cover all possible system configurations, the same applies to harware maintenance manuals, and may feature options which are not present on your particular system.
 
The early Yoga 260s were not equipped with WWAN or WWAN antennae because at that time no international agency approvals had been received for the transmit and receive functions. Systems which are agency qualified may have WWAN integrated at the factory or be WWAN ready with factory installed antennae but no WWAN module.

The cable required to connect the NFC card to the motherboard is only available as part of a kit that is rather expensive - so if that cable is missing, it will not be a cheap upgrade. Previous posts on the forum suggest that Lenovo do not support WWAN or WiGig on the OLED version of the X1 Yoga. It is unclear whether this is a physical limitation (no room for the antennas) or a regulatory issue (unwillingness to qualify the OLED version for WWAN and WiGig). I would proceed on the basis that there is no way to add WWAN or WiGig to an OLED X1 Yoga.

So I have been searching and searching and searching on information of a possible whitlist for our devices.  Ihave seen another thread talking about this on a different X series laptop. And that had a link in it to another thread that also discussed it as well. But, if any one knows if our X1 Yogas have a white list on any part and connector to part list.

I have an x1 yoga WWAN where SIM card occasionally not detected. This can even happen in the middle of an active LTE connection. Reseating the SIM helps but even without reseating if I run an AT!RESET to reset the EM7455 wwan card, it will start working again. I have not done any troubleshooting but would like to know what the most likely failure mode is:- Bad EM7455 card- Bad sim slot with a glitchy contact- bad solder job or other connection issue between EM7455 M.2 slot and SIM slot. I.e. how likely is it that replacing the EM7455 will resolve this? One other poster on this board had Lenovo come out and replace the entire motherboard but that seems drastic in my case as it works fine 95% of the time.

Hi, I just received a x1 yoga oled and inserted my sim card. Entered the pin and everything works fine. In my network selection pane (the one to the right bottom in Win 10) I then de-clicked the mobile toggle because at home I use my wifi, which is faster and is free. When then restarting the notebook or closing and re-opening the lid the mobile toggle disappears and the cellular network says "deactivated" with no option to reactivate it. The only solution to again use my sim is then to reinstall all drivers which I found on the Lenovo site. Anyone know how to stop this weird behaviour? Thanks,Paul
