I HAVE AN HP ELITEBOOK 1030 X360 G2 Laptop. I want to know whether the sim card slot provided is a dummy slot (covered and unable to open it) or a working slot.

Hi:

 

In order for the SIM card to work, your notebook would also need to have the required mobile broadband (WWAN) card.

 

90% of notebooks do not come with that very expensive and optional feature.

 

I will anticipate your next question...how to tell if the notebook has a WWAN card?

 

Go to the device manager.  Click to expand the Network Adapters device manager category.

 

If your notebook has a WWAN card, it will be one of these models...

 

HP lt4132 LTE/HSPA+ 4G Mobile Broadband Module

HP hs3210 HSPA Mobile Broadband

HP lt4120 Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X5 LTE Mobile Broadband Module

 

If you don't see any of those devices listed, then the SIM card slot was covered for that reason.
