How to know whether the laptop having a sim card slot is dummy or working slot

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

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.

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 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.
