Default Is my Mini 10 likely to have an active sim card slot? - 10-13-2009, 07:12 PM

...Purchased a Mini 10 with the DW700 GPS option...

I note that the sim card slot is present in the battery compartment, and my sim card successfully clicks in and out.

My receipt says I have the "WWAN option" (as the GPS card occupies it...) and the antenna cables are present and routed.

Therefore, if I was to remove the GPS card (I would like to trade it away...) and replace it with the 5530 WWAN card, do people think my sim card slot would be connected and active?

Second question: are the 5530 cards usually operator unlocked?

Thanks in advance...

If it clicks in and out I'd say its there. My Mini 10 with TV Tuner has the slot but when you put a sim card in it just disappears inside it!

Please do not send me support requests via PM.
