SIM Card slot in my laptop - what's it for?

Hello,


My only question here is, what's the SIM card slot in my laptop for? My laptop is an HP Elitebook 6930p and it has Windows 7 32-bit. I used the SIM card that's in my phone, but that didn't do anything. Do I need any new drivers?  Or do I need to purchase something in order for my SIM card to work? 

 

Thanks in advance for any answers. :generic:

SIM Card slot in my laptop - what's it for?

The SIM card from a phone probably wouldn't work in the SIM slot. The SIM slot is for WWAN (mobile broadband) such as you used to see for USB 3G modems. Phones are typically provisioned differently with different options on the provider side which could prevent a phone SIM card from working properly in the SIM slot.

The following document discussing the WWAN function of the notebook. You will need to contact a provider and activate the service to get a SIM card for it.

SIM Card slot in my laptop - what's it for?

My only question here is, what's the SIM card slot in my laptop for? My laptop is an HP Compaq 6910p and it has Windows 7 64-bit. I used the SIM card that's in my phone, but that didn't do anything. Do I need any new drivers?  Or do I need to purchase something in order for my SIM card to work? 

 

Thanks in advance for any answers. :smileyhappy:
