How to use the Dell 11z Sim Slot and GPS!!! Solution Here! - 02-26-2012, 11:57 AM
As pointed out before, the Dell 11z has a sim slot under the battery area. The dell 11z comes with a Gobi 2000 card. Although the 11z is setup for sprint , WiMax you can easily change this, and also activate the GPS
the Gobi 2000 card can be used with verizon, sprint, GSM (like att, tmobile etc) You just need to load the right firmware and setup the proper settings.
First, download the dell Gobi 2000 drivers.
Next, you need the dell Gobi loader for novatel wireless, i got this from dells website although now i cant find the direct link. Install this software. Dell 11z Gobi Utility
Run the dell mobile broadband utility after install.
Under settings, you see "network selection" , to Use GSM overseas, i selected " Verizon wireless HSDPA" and hit ok. You might have to reboot the computer. Make sure your SIM is in , Also the APP has a GPS option which does work.
It should detect the sim, if not, check the settings and make sure you have them configured properly for your carrier. You might have to reboot, double check and make sure " verizon HSDPA " is selected. For some reason, this activated my GSM SIM slot
I can now use Smart in the Philippines on HSDPA. A big shame on everyone in the dell forums for saying its not possible or its locked.
