Lenovo Edge E120 - Cannot detect GOBI 2000 WAN Card

Question: Lenovo Edge E120 - Cannot detect GOBI 2000 WAN Card

Hi I hope someone could assist. I bought an E120 as my country does not see the X120e I had purchased a GOBI 2000 WWAN Card from Lenovo re-seller. The card passes through the whitelist just fine although it is not stated as one of the supported WWAN devices. I tried installing the 7xwc48ww.exe (X120e and Edge 11 WAN drivers) to see if it would work. The GOBI Loader installs, but the driver does not load, meaning - Under device manager - PORTS - Gobi loader - Under device manager - Network Adapters - No Gobi WAN Card I also tried the solution from -http://curiouslynerdy.com/2009/05/qualcomm-gobi-wwan-card-on-windows-7/ but still no joy. I believe the X120 and E120 are very similar, so I assume the Gobi WAN should be able to work. Can someone suggest another solution? Thanks much!

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Edge E120 - Cannot detect GOBI 2000 WAN Card

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Lenovo Edge E120 - Cannot detect GOBI 2000 WAN Card

The Edge E120 is like the X121e, a GOBI 3000 or F5521gw will work. I tried a GOBI 2000 in my E120 with the same result as you.

I'm getting such mixed information from retailers, and no answer at all from Lenovo after hanging on the phone for an hour. Some retailers say this machine does NOT have WWAN, some say it can be upgraded, and some say it is enabled (ready to go?). I appreciate that there is the NVY4LUK (glossy screen, WWAN upgradable), and NVY5FUK (anti-glare screen, not WWAN upgradable, but I am specifically looking at the top model NVY5EUK.Can anyone state the true position? I don't want to assume it's included if it's not, because the retailer will just claim that they never said it had 3G Broadband in the first place!

Answer:Edge 11 - NVY5EUK: does it have the Gobi 2000 card installed?

An update ... I placed an order today with a UK supplier for an NVY5EUK on the condition that he first find out whether the machine was fully equipped for 3G Broadband - their web site stated 'no', their techie stated 'no', I quoted the 'onebookcatalogue.pdf' from the Lenovo web site, he managed to speak to someone at Lenovo and came back with the answer that it does have full 3G Broadband.As the majority of Lenovo sellers don't seem to know what they are selling (similar problems with the AMD specs too), I wonder how many potential sales are lost because customers think they are getting less than they really are with Lenovo, and go elsewhere for the features they are looking for. Or they get a machine that does not live up to the retailer's spec, and blame Lenovo.It is surely not beyond the wit of Lenovo to publish on their web site a definitive and accurate specifications of all the machines they are currently selling - after all, they are the only ones who can really know. Most retailers seem to rely on www.icecat.biz, which is at best incomplete, and at worst misleading.When my Edge 11 arrives in a couple of days I will know for sure. I trust it will also have the anti-glare screen I am hoping for!

When I place a simcard in the cardholder. The Lenovo software says 'no simcard installed'It's a KPN(dutch) simcard. If I search on the internet I can only find information about this controller working with Vodafone cards. Is this my problem? Is there anything I need to change about my settings or anything? When I use the simcard in another USB WWan device it asks for a pin. When it is the lenovo it only says 'no sim card installed'. I hope someone can help me out. thnx for the support.

Hello, I've just bought a Gobi 2000 WWAN Card for my Thinkpad Edge 13 in order to use WLAN and WWAN. I assumed that, because I can use this both functions on demand with my T400 (with integrated WWAN option). Now as I got the card I was shocked, that there are not enough screws to hold the WLAN and the WWAN card and that there seems no way in sharing the antenna cables. Do you know a way run the WWAN card together with the former installed WLAN card, cause I would like to use the WWAN option as well as the WLAN option without changing the cards and antenna connectors. Do you know a way to use both cards and share the antenna cables or it is only possible to run one of this both pcie cards ? Regards Jens

HiI recently came by a HP GOBI 2000 wwan cardThis exact model: NEW HP Gobi2000 HSUPA 2G 3G WCDMA WWAN UMTS Wi Fi Card GPS UN2420 I know this might be a long shot, but are there any workarounds to getting such a card to work in a W530?I tried pluggin it in, and whereas the first driver installs, the "Lenovo broadband activation" fails, the card shows up with a question mark in device manager, and troubleshooting it in "adapter settings" states that "there might be a problem with the driver"I know that the chipset should be supported, so what is the problem here? Driver signing? Or Bios whitelist?Any help much obliged

Answer:gobi 2000, wwan not detected - non-lenovo GOBI 2000

Hi, eyeland
 
Do you have a SIM card inserted in the machine? If not, this will be needed for WWAN access. Also, which version of Windows are you running, and what drivers did you download to get the card to work?
 
Thanks in advance,Adam

When the fan starts, it makes alot of noise, even in low speed. when system gets a bit warmer, noisey fan calms a bit down. but not quiet. I removed both keyboard and the cover below, and removed all the dust (not much dust) by an air blower. But the problem still exists. Should I change the fan or it still have a chance to live?

I use ATT so I ran the Gobi coniguration utility to use the ATT image (2) which it seemed to do with no errors. I also updated the Gobi based code as suggested on the driver downloads site How can I tell whether the Gobi card is installed without opening the machine up? Thanks Mark

Hello,
 
I found a spec sheet for the Gobi 2000 here and the one for the Gobi 3000 here.  From looking between the two, it appears the newer 3000 model is ready for UMTS - AWS and EV-DO/CDMA ? 2100 MHz (standards which may not have been ratified when the 2000 was released), supports faster HSDPA speeds (14.4Mbps vs. 7.2Mbps) and is 2.5 grams lighter.

Answer:Installing a GOBI 2000 (post-sale upgrade) - Mini PCI express card

I think you can, provided that you obtain a Gobi 2000 card with Lenovo FRU. A generic Gobi 2000 card or a Gobi 2000 card from another vendor will not work in your W510 without BIOS modding.

You have  ThinkPad Wireless WAN (UNDP) Driver 1.1.250 and ThinkVantage Access Connections  5.95 for windows 7.  ThinkVantage Access Connection 5.95 for XP and if this is correct I would suggest you uninstall both driver and Access connections.

Question: T510: Gobi 2000

I am an insurance salesman, not an IT guy, so it was a painful experience, but I got it done. When delivered, I had chosen configured for WWAN.  I discovered that I had to now order a Wireless card.  That done, I followed the picture for installation that one needs a magnifying glass to read.  There is no instructions on how to hook up the wires to the card, and I had to struggle to get the wires to lay in a manner that would allow me to close everything up.  The first couple of tries resulted in the wires popping off as soon as I tried to secure the card in its slot. Next was getting a mobile broadband data plan.  I chose Verizon and wanted a minimum monthly plan.  To choose the Lenovo option would mean a 2 year committment at the highest price per month.  The only problem is that few people at Verizon know how to set this up.  I was transferred to a tech I think may be in Atlanta, but he was the only Verizon tech that understood what I wanted.  You have to insist to Verizon that you have an embedded chip wireless card.  They will try their best to get you to install a USB dongle.  With the Gobi chip, your equipment is customer provided (CPE) so Verizon will allow you a month to month contract and no cancellation charges.  I found out that I could make a small software change and get the Gobi to work with Sprint, so I am waiting to see how Verizon works out.  If I don't like them, I can switch without...

You probably need to configure a custom profile in Access Connections to get it working. However, you will not be able to get 3G speeds on T-Mobile with the Gobi 2000 since it does not support T-Mobile's 1700mhz 3G band.

I am poised to purchase an X201 any minute now...but I need some info before I do...
 
I am currently using a Verizon Wireless USB "air card" (VZAccess) for my mobile/anytime/everywhere internet connection.  I was going to upgrade my device to the new LTE 4G card and extend my plan for another 2 years for wireless through Verizon.  However, I am just now learning about GOBI - I was NOT going to include that option in my new ThinkPad, but now I'm wondering if I should.  I would LOVE not having to mess with that card sticking out of the USB port all the time, so the GOBI option sounds appealing.
 
My question is this:  the only GOBI option is 2000 3G.  So what is actually the better option - and what are the advantages...Verizon 4G USB modem with 4G monthly service plan (now actually cheaper than previous 3G plan), or the integrated GOBI 3G.  If I am completely confused about the whole 3G/4G thing, will some please explain?  I am of the mind that 4G is better, that the plan is better, but the actual card is a nuisance...that GOBI would be more convenient, but then is an older, almost outdated technology... ??
 
Any help would be appreciated!  Thank you.

Answer:Help, please! Verizon LTE 4G USB vs GOBI 2000 3G

Hello mate, First you have to know what the cariers call 4G is not really 4G. LTE is really a pre 4G.The Gobi 2000 support HSDPA+ who is 3.5G. HSDPA+ is the most commun connection for the moment. LTE is faster but the network just start to be deployed means there is a lot of black spots. In theses blackspots you will connect in HSDPA+.I think you will have at least 2 years before the LTE network will be deployed.Normally the real 4G will be finalized soon. The race is beetween WIMAX 2 and LTE Advanced. Normally LTE Advanced should be compatible with LTE but really nobody knows.For my point of view, for the moment, it's a bit risky to change everything to gain a bit of speed. This thing remembers me the war beetween HDDVD and BluRay. And at the end people who bought HDDVD have now a useless thing you can't use anymore. For my usage the Gobi 2000 is perfect because is just a second connection when i'm away. The speed is far enough to browse the net and check the mail.

I just placed an order a T410 with Mobile Broadband Gobi 2000 GPS 3G.I selected Open SIM card for Verizon May I ask if this card support GSM (e.g. able to use GPRS, EDGE and 3G)? Is it unlock and could be use with any GSM carriers around the globe? (I am frequent traveller and have to switch the mobile number quite often) Thanks for the information, I appreciated!James [Update]: I just called the Technical support to ask about this and the technician told me that, I cannot use other SIM card than Verizon one. This means I have to stick with Verizon Open SIM forever???? Is it true???

Answer:Gobi 2000 GPS 3G is unlocked and is GSM?

well...the answer to both of your questions is YES.Verizon tech support (and it's NOT the first time i encounter it...) knows nothing regarding the Gobi.

So I got a SSD for my T410 and thought what the hell lets go for Windows 8. All is sweet apart from my Gobi 2000 mobile broadband. I found some beta Windows 8 drivers and after learning Access Connections is not supported on Windows 8, I downloaded and installed the Dependency Package. Now when I launch Lenovo Mobile Broadband Connect I get the message "Mobile Broadband device not found". In Windows 8 under Networks side bar, it just says "Mobile Broadband (Off)". Any ideas?

For the past week my Verizon connection won't disconnect.  If you click disconnect in the Windows control panel and in VZ access manager it does not complete the process and stays connected.  No error, just doesn't disconnect. I have uninstalled and reinstalled both the driver and VZ Access Manager.  No change. Interesting, I uninstalled the Lenovo driver and VZ Access Manager.  Then I installed the Lenovo driver.  As soon as the Lenovo driver was installed Verizon was connected and I cannot disconnect. In Windows, under properties, I have selected "Do not automatically connect" and in VZ Access Manager I have selected "NDIS - Manually connect".  Does not have an impact.   It's like the connect switch is forced on and I don't know why.  I am out of ideas and need some of yours.  This is an X201 with Windows 7 and the latest drivers and VZAM version.  It's a domain machine too.   Thoughts? Thanks!

Hi Everyone Question to the forum:I've got X201T with Gobi 2000, and an EVDO subsciption.Currently using the USB modem that comes with the subscription, and trying to use the Gobi.I cannot connect to the provider (SMART TELECOM) using Access Connection software from Lenovo. The error I get is "SIM card found. Unable to retrieve IMSI." What am I missing here? CheersNick

Answer:X201T with Gobi 2000

Take out your battery from your tablet. Check behind your tablet to see if there's a simcard inserted in the simcard slot. That may be what's causing you the problem with SIM card found. If it's there, remove it.

Hello Guys. I'm running on ThinkPad T450s. I've tried to install a SIM card in its tray with no detection at all. After going through google, Wireless WAN, EricssonŽ N5321 and Wireless WAN, Sierra Wireless EM7345  came into my attention. I went to my Device Manager where I found non of the adapters installed. Is it possible for them to be installed without being displayed on Device Manager? I've seen some suggestion to replace the current Wi-Fi adapter with Sierra Wireless EM7345. My concern is if I'll be in position to access Wi-Fi after its adapter being replaced with this Wireless WWAN adapter. Are these Wireless WWAN adapters provide access to Wi-Fi? Most of the Wireless WWAN adapters I've gone through eBay works with X230s X240 W540 T440P T440S W540; will these works well with this T450s of mine? Thanks in advance. Regards, Cathbert. 

Answer:LENOVO THINKPAD 450s WON'T DETECT A SIM CARD

HiMost likely the wwan card isn't installed in the laptop. Provide, please, its MTM code (it starts with 20BW or 20BX) to check out the factory configuration. If there are CTO symbols, send me laptop serial number via the forum private messages service.Only Lenovo approved wwan cards for T450s will work in the laptop, with appropriate service p/n (FRU).The wwan card will not work in the wlan slot, it even can't be fitted there. Of course, modern built-in wwan cards don't support wifi capabilities.

Hey guys, I'm planning on buying an X120e when I visit the US next month (for some strange reason they're not selling it in Europe at all). I'm interested in the mobile broadband modem option, but $125 is too much for me to pay at this moment, and I'm not sure whether it'll be locked to US networks. I would therefore like to buy the Gobi 2000 or 3000 later on from eBay and use it in the laptop. Would this work fine on O2 or Three UK, or would I run into some odd issues?

Answer:Gobi 2000 modem with X120e

Helo,
 
I do not know if it will work, but when you look for a replacement 3G modem, make sure it has the Lenovo/IBM part number on that is listed in your X120e's Hardware Maintenance Manual as a generic OEM one might not work with the X120e.

My new Gobi 2000 WWAN PCI-Card arrived today (this one). However, I am having trouble installing it. I tried both HP and Lenovo drivers for GOBI 2000. Under "Device Manager" I see "WAN Miniport (Network Monitor) #2" and "HP un2420 Mobile Broadband Module". Both of them dont have correct drivers.  I read in some forum post that sometimes the BIOS whitelist has to be modified in order to get the card to work.. how would I do that? Is there any other way of getting it to work? I care about the GPS more than about the 3G. Cant use Access Connections because of Win8.  Thanks in advance.

First of all thank you for a great product. I have had my x201 tablet with outdoor display for more than half a year and it has worked really well! The keyboard, mouse-buttons, display, design features, feel, support (Sweden) and so on has been excellent so far! Yes, there are small design flaws like the pitching sound and a little accuracy problems at the edges, but it really is small compared to the positive things. I think you need some encouragement these days, espacially with the  accuracy problems facing the x220t. However, my question is about the GPS reciever with the Gobi 2000. When I use the GPS enabler it takes a long time to get a fix, and also the reception isn´t very good. Is there anything I can do to improve the performance? I saw in an old thread here on the forum about the problem, but it was for over a year ago and probably somewhat outdated. Thanks, Andre

"Open SIM Card: WW" means that there is no country/carrier-specific SIM card included (WW=WorldWide).

Hi all, I have a W510 with a Qualcomm Gobi 2000 card.  It seems to work ok with the software that comes with it. But I want to increase the GPS position update rate from each 3 seconds to maybe twice each second.  Is there a NMEA configuration statement to do this? I also want to programatically with an API turn the GPS on/off.  Currently this must be done with a button press in the ThinkAdvantage GPS Enabler tool. Third, I am looking for documentation of the particular dialect of NMEA sentences used.  There is a proprietory sentence $PQXFI that may contain interesting accuracy information.  Example: $PQXFI,192908.9,5955.424660,N,01055.895431,E,224.5,45.93,21.33,3.84*66 Finally some NMEA sentences appears to have ilegal information in them.  Is really nan allowed in the NMEA standard?  Example: $GPVTG,nan,T,nan,M,0.0,N,0.0,K,A*23 Thanks

Hello community. My T410 was upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10, Windows 10 meanwhile with Anniversary Update.A Qualcomm Gobi 2000 WAN card in the device manager is correctly depicted as "Qualcomm Gobi 2000 HS-USB Modem 9205", driver version 2.0.7.4 (amongst others). I can turn on and off Cellular Network in the action center.But with Settings -> Cellular Network I get a status text saying the account is not activated.When I try Cellular Network -> Advanced Options -> Add an Internet APN, on "save" I get the error message "The mobile device is missing or not operating properly". The SIM card is active, I tested another one in exchange, same result.I also uninstalled and reinstalled the device driver according to https://support.lenovo.com/de/en/documents/migr-75433 with the option DEFAULTIMAGE=6. Any help appreciated!T.

Gobi 2000 / WAN driver install fails on new Thinkpad Edge 15 with Windows 7 64 bit. The automatic update function suggested I should download new drivers.However after downloading the install always aborts (apparently without any reason).As a result the WAN / 3G functionality is not available anymore. (1) Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue would be great. (Yes I tried reinstalling)(2) Are there alternative drivers? Beta drivers?(3) Other ways to fix this? Any help appreciated. PS: From google I gather that I am not the only one who faces issues with Gobi 2000 and Windows 7 64bit...

Hi, I have a X201 laptop from US and I would like to use it in Singapore with a valid SIM card from M1.Although I can connect to internet using mobile broadband successfully, but GPS does not seem to work well with it.I have updated Lenovo GPS to latest 2.60, but I do not see a XTRA (A-GPS) in GPS mode.I understand that XTRA needs WWAN connectivity, though I have WWAN working but it's still indicated as "not activated" for Lenovo software.Is there anyway I can change (e.g. registry setting) to "activate" mobile broadband so I can use XTRA in Lenovo GPS?

I got a T410 with a Qualcomm Gobi 2000 adapter and wonder if there is any other software that can be used instead of Access Connections? The software have to support Windows 7 x64/x86 as well since that is the OS i will be using.On other Thinkpads with the Ericsson F3507g i been using Ericsson Wireless Manager instead of AC that i found to work better. Hopefully there are some other options for the Qualcomm Gobi 2000 as well. Any advice for other software than AC would be appreciated.

Answer:Software for the Qualcomm Gobi 2000 adapter

Hi gan,
 
You should be able to make WWAN connections just using Windows, no other software required. I don't know who your provider is, but here's and example of the setup for AT&T in the US.

My system is a ThinkPad T510 (4349-4JG) with a Qualcomm Gobi 2000 module. I'm having problems using this for GSM DialUp connections. A colleague have a W500 with Ericsson F3507g and there it work's flawlessly. He uses the following initialization string to do this at+cfun=5;+cbst=71,0,1. This one does not work with the Gobi module. I have had some success with manually connecting to the virtual com port with a terminal client and then setting at+cfun=1 and at+cbst=14,0,1. Problem is that the connection is very unstable and very often I can't connect at all. I'm dialing up unix machines with a Siemens TC65 module and I can do this everytime without problems using an external comport modem from a different computer.  Hopefully someone have a solution for this?

I have had an y580 for about a year now and recently tried playing a game and noticed it ran terribly so I investigated my system and noticed it was using the intel card instead of the nvidia one. So i went to the Nvidia control panel and it doesnt allow me to access it saying "Nvidia card not detected"  In device manager it doesnt show up.GPU-z doesnt find the card. Basically my computer thinks that this card isnt there. I am using Windows 8.1   Thanks for any help!

Answer:Lenovo Y580 doesnt detect NVidia graphics card

Have you tried to un-install nvidia drivers and then re-install them? if nvidia card wont appear still then it could be that it has fryed or broken so laptop went to intel gpu instead thats built into cpu :/ so mostlikely you would need to send laptop off to repair and have whole motherboard re-placed with a new one which will cost you quite alot for repair :/

I have up-to date Windows 7 x64 SP1 ENG version of windows.Here is some screens to illustrate the problem     The problem poped up 2 or 3 revisions of Nvidia driver ago with original version of Photoshop CC 2014. As you can see updating program and video card drivers to date, do nothing. And yes, i tried to launch PS with mouse context menu and forcing to use Nvidia chip. In control panel of video card PS is assosiated with Nvidia card too. These glitchy computers drives me crazy, maybe this is why i quit IT... Any suggestions?

Answer:Lenovo T530: Photoshop CC 2014.2 can't detect Nvidia card (340.84)

I've found solution by myself.  When launching PS i've noticed, that GPU activity icon in system tray shows up weird process: sniffer.exe, instead of prospective PS. It seems, that this file somehow interfere with a whole system. Sucker located here: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014\sniffer.exe You can rename or even delete it (without aftermath), then launch PS. After this weird manipulation software will recognize Nvidia chip, but you have to wait additional 5-7 seconds in a stucking freeze.  Same delays awaits you when you try to launch external plugins, which are using GPU acceleration. So, all these actions, is a half measure. I am sit tight on PS 2014.2 and rolling back to old Nvidia drivers 333.11 (all revisions between 333.111 and 340.84 have the same problems, or it is glitchy Adobe?) Remember the rule: oldie, but goldie.

When I ordered my T410s, I chose the "upgradeable" option.  What does that exactly mean?  Does this mean that I have all the hardware already pre-installed, and I just need a SIM card and a service plan?  I noticed what appears to be a SIM card slot underneath the battery.  Should have thought ahead when I ordered the ThinkPad and had them set it up ready to go from the beginning.  Thanks.

Answer:Integrated Mobile Broadband - Upgradeable vs. Gobi 2000

Upgradable means you have the SIM slot and built-in antenna, but need to insert a WWAN mini PCI adapter like the Gobi 2000. So you have all the hardware except the WWAN adapter. The WWAN adapter is easy to insert and not that expensive to buy so it's no big deal, but if you are going to use mobile broadband you could as well have bought the Gobi 2000 instead of upgradable. You need a SIM card and a plan as well from a mobile network operator in your country. -gan

Hi,I am a newbie to this stuff. I cannot get my mobile broadband card to work.I have an X121e which has upgradeable mobile broadband. Foolishly I did not buy this card at time of purchase. I have bought an unlocked Gobi 2000 and installed this and the sim card. I have installed the drivers and the broadband package from lenovo. The Gobi 2000 is shown under ports in device manager (windows 7 64bit) with a com3 allocation.However...in 'access connections' there is no adapter so I cannot set up a mobile broadband profile. Only the lan and wireless card are options. Windows 7 internet connections only gives me wired, wireless and modem options. Searching the internet I think this card needs to be shown as a network adapter.Ideas anyone please?

Hi, I have installed new win 8 on my T410s and I cant find the driver for the gobi 2000. can you direct me? thanks Doron

Answer:gobi 2000 driver for windows 8 - thinkpad t410s

Hi, doronei
 
I cannot find any Windows 8 drivers for your system on Lenovo's website. Drivers are sometimes compatible with different versions of operating systems than those listed, so I would try the drivers here and see if it helps. You will likely need the driver for activation of the card and the driver itself, so make sure you get both of them. If it does not help, then you will be able to uninstall it from Device Manager.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

Answer:X201 T410 Win XP Gobi 2000 Connection Software

You are right, access connections is a bit too US users oriented, they are just discovering the cellular connections, and they are not so used with apn and other related settings. So I searched a bit and below there is what I discovered so far. You can simply use the dialup connection, quick easy to configure and light, but you loose the signal strenght monitor,and and other advanced functions. Alternatively I tried the mobile2go sw that comes with some Vaios it works pretty well, it manages the short messages, can be used to force the connection in 2g or in 3g and so on. There's also the vanilla Qualcomm dashboard, it's clean and quick but is stuck to the USB ID of the specific manufacturers (acer, toshiba...) so a bit of tweaking to the included driver's inf is needed, or you get the messages "missing device". If you are a vodafone customer you can also use the usual VMC, is full featured but is heavy as access connections. Maybe there's also other options.

Hi all, I've just bought a new ThinkPad W510 equipped with the Mobile BroadBand Option: Qualcomm Gobi 2000 HS-USB Mobile Broadband Device 9205. I've installed from scratch Windows 7 Ultimate - 64bit as the Operating System and then I've updated every specific driver using the Lenovo ThinkVantage System Update v.4.0 utility. So, in Network and Sharing Center, I've a new running Mobile BroadBand Connection labeled as Verizon Wireless and then it comes my problem. I'm writing from ITALY and in my country there is NO Verizon Roaming Connection available. I'm also using a pre-paid contract SIM card with Vodafone IT provider, inserted in the correct back-battery SIM-slot. Is there a way to configure the Gobi 9205 device to work correctly with Vodafone provider? I've just searched a lot on google without results. The only suggestions derive from this web page: CLICK HERE But it seems to be a specific GobiLoader for Gobi 9201/9202 device and not for mine 9205. I've tried to launch the loader.exe but it seems that the file and some specific informations about the firmware/driver mismatch from the two versions. So, is there any official Lenovo way to use Mobile Connection with Vodafone provider? Thank you all in advance!

Answer:ThinkPad W510 and Qualcomm Gobi 2000 9205

Hi guys, after a research inside the driver unpackaged folder I've found a Readme doc file. I've found the way to install another firmware for Gobi 2000 9205 with specific provider informations. After a complete uninstall of Qualcomm Gobi 2000 drivers, at the command prompt, in the folder with the unpackaged driver, I need to enter this string: Setup.exe /i /l DEFAULTIMAGE=0 GPS=1 WIN7DRIVER=1 LOCATIONDRIVER=1 where the "DEFAULTIMAGE=0" substring indicates the provider to use.It seems that installation process completes fine, I can find inside the "C:/Program Data/QUALCOMM/" folder, a log file which indicates that the firmware loaded is the one from the "0" folder, where "0" means Vodafone.These are the informations about the folder with the corresponding firmware I've found on google: Vodafone 0Verizon 1AT&T 2Sprint 3T-Mobile 4Generic UMTS (North America) 5Generic UMTS (Europe) 6Telefonica 7TIM 8Orange 9Telstra 10 But the problem is not solved. Despite the Vodafone information has been clearly written inside the log file, in my Network and Sharing Center there is always "Verizon Wireless" as WWAN network connection :-( How can I solve this problem? Why is the Verizon provider persistent even if I've installed the driver with the "0" (Vodafone) default image? Where am I wrong?I'm an IBM of Italy employee and I need a working WWAN connection with Vodafone provider ASAP. Thank you in advance!

Hello, I have a small question about the QualComm Gobi 2000 in the ThinkPad X201 3680-1T2, I wonder if I can send SMS with it in my laptop. I brought SMSCaster however it gives me an error, I have no idea how I can get it to send SMS. Can someone point me into the correct directions to send a SMS using the Gobi 2000, please state the software when used or the settings (and where I can find the settings to enable SMS). Thank you for your supprt. PS: for those who are unfamiliar with the ThinkPad X201 3680-1T2, it is not a touchpad version.

Answer:ThnkPad X201 3680-1T2; QualComm Gobi 2000 question

When you open Access Connections, is the SMS icon on the Tools tab greyed out or in color?  When you left-click your Mobile Broadband icon on the Tools tab (in Access Connections), do you have an option with which to enable SMS?  I have have a similar question for my X201 3249 (about which I have made a similar post).  I have read on the Lenovo Community about SMS problems with Windows 7 but,considering many of these postings were made over a year ago, one would think that a solution to this problem would have been found by now.
