    Lenovo EM7355 drivers, I needed these to make the card work. The WWAN accepted the SIM, ATT saw the WWAN card, but, I could not get on the network. Found these and now I am good. It can do LTE but I am having trouble getting the card to do LTE in McLean, VA but I am in an office building. So, I'll try it outside when I take lunch.

    Ooh... in looking for the NFC module, I found this PDF, a list of FRUs:

    What one needs I do not know... it seems to require not just a cable, but a new touch lcd panel, or something?

    Zeek,great stuff,is this possible with Lenovo Helix2 20CG000qUS?
    Would it cancel warranty?
    If so,could it be done by a local
    certified Lenovo technician and
    not violate warranty?
    Would the 7345 modem work
    Globally and in North America
    or the only one for US is
    7355?
    Because 7345comes in
    US inside the 20CG0036US
    it seems it would work Globally
    and US as we'll.
    Also is it unlocked for all cellular network providers Worldwide or can any provider unlock it?
    Is this modem still available from Lenovo today including
    manual and driver and would work when installed today on
    Helix 2 20CG000qUS?
    Thanks,Jadd

    Hello everyone, I have a Thinkpad 10 and followed this thread to purchase and install the Gobi and the antenna. I am able to use the Tablet with a TMobile SIM, but when I try to put my Verizon SIM in the tablet it just spins and spins on "searching for signal" forever. I have tried everything I can think of, adapter settings, APN, etc and the Gobi recognizes it as Verizon but I just cannot connect no matter what. The same SIM card works fine in my phone. Am I missing something?

    The firmware on the gobi needs to be updated if you switch carriers. This happens automatically on my system by restarting the tablet. I am using the Panasonic software mentioned in my earlier post.
