Can a HP Elitebook 840 G3 use a T-Mobile SIM Card?

Elitebook 840 G3
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

A friend of mine is selling his HP Elitebook 840 G3 and I am thinking about buying it. The thing that attracts me to it is the SIM slot. If I can use my T-mobile data SIM on this computer I will definitely buy it. 

 

Does anyone know if a T-Mobile SIM card will work in the Elitebook 840 G3?

@ussvalor

 

You have to check

 

1. Does it have one of the following options

 

        HP hs3110 HSPA+ Intel® Mobile Broadband Module*
        HP lt4120 Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X5 LTE Mobile Broadband Module

   Go to Device Manager > Network Adapters.

 

2. If yes, please check with T-Mobile to see: dos it support the installed card.

 

Regards.

Can either of those two modules be added after purchase if my machine does not have it? I'm a skilled technician, I just need to know if the parts are available.

 

Thanks!

@LittleGhoti 

 

Sorry, the specs clearly says

 

   Optional Broadband Wireless (WWAN) requires a Windows operating system and is available in select countries as a standard, factory configurable feature only.

 

Looks like we can't add WWAN module ourselves. Please check your machine to see the SIM slot because

 

  All units have a SIM card slot and icon but units that do not support WWAN are shipped with a non-removable SIM slot plug

 

Regards.
