My Latitude D620 has a SIM CARD SLOT below Battery.

  • Hi all,
    My Latitude D620 has a SIM CARD SLOT below Battery.
    wanted to know the use of it.
    can i use it for accessing internet from my simcard...
  • they all do. I beleive you need the WWAN networking card thats a mini-pci addin at purchase time. that sim holder is just the reader portion that the mini-pci card would talk to.
  • My D420 also has the mentioned SIM card slot, and I was wondering if Dell had accidentally provided me with a WWAN card although I did not order one. However, I guess trifster is right: the reader unit alone won't be of any use. What a shame... :)

    wanted to know the use of it.
    can i use it for accessing internet from my simcard...
  • Only if you also purchase a WWAN card compatible with your cell service provider - along with a data plan for Internet access.  By itself, the SIM card is not sufficient for connectivity.

  • hi go to sim card

  • fine

  • nadagouda

    i have dell d620 there is a simcard slot below the battery. how to use this.

  • See above.  You can't use the SIM by itself.  You must have a WWAN card that is compatible with your service provider's network.
