Default Confused about WWAN port - 02-02-2009, 06:09 PM

I own a Verizon Wireless Dell 5720 WWAN card in my Latitude D630, and want to move it to a Dell Mini 9.

I have talked with a few people from Dell and am getting conflicting reports... Someone in Outlet sales said all the Mini 9's come with internal WWAN ports even though they were being reported as not having them on the site.

The person in new system sales said that if it was ordered without an AT&T card there would be a slot for sure but didn't think the VZW card would work?

The user's guide seems to show a WWAN slot on it...

Can someone confirm what would happen if I were to order a refub on the site? They all say "No WWAN card slot"

Thanks

It must say "wan slot" otherwise there will be no slot.

And if you order a new system, without the att broadband, you will not get the wan slot neither.

Maybe you find this interesting:

Interesting.. they have 2 different motherboards for the same system... Very unlike Dell...

No issues just swapping a VZW 5720 into the system that came with an AT&T card though?

They do not come with the WWAN port/sim card reader/3g antennas. You have to look for ones that say WWAN port.

If I buy one with the AT&T card, and swap the VZW one in everything should work though?
