    Hey Shmuelzon, I got my SIM card reader from ebay, search for solderless usim sim socket, though US$ 15,00 is a bit expensive, I think. The SIM reader fits nicely, even with a double sided 3M gel tape.

    Hi, Tacerra, the antenna I got, is a generic laptop antenna, i just searched for the most flat, and resoldered the contacts to reduce the cable length.

    ...Sorry, I didn't notice your posting count. You need to have a certain number of posts (10 or 15, I can't remember) to earn private messaging (and selling forum) privileges.

    I'll PM im140.2 for you and refer him to this discussion. No guarantees as to when (of even if) he might respond...

    UPDATE: Done.

    Thanks Im104. I need to know the model of the SIM card reader in your BUILD slate and where the conector for the reader is located.

    On a side note, I was poking around on my open slate and found the under the circuit board for the PCIe Minibus card is a connector for a ribbon cable. Can anyone else confirm?

    im104.2, have you had a chance to look into the details of the SIM card reader on your BUILD slate?

    I have installed all of the new hardware and the Bluetooth was not lost as a result of the change. I have WiFi and GPS but won't have mobile until I get the SIM card reader

    That's weird, but great. So the bluetooth module is already on the motherboard? What is the model number?

    Well, I mean, you said you installed all of the new hardware and the Bluetooth was not lost as a result of the change. So even if you replace the intel centrino 6230 by an Option GTM 671w, you still have bluetooth?

    Thanks. What OS are you running and where did you get the driver? Under Win 8 it doesn't have a driver for the globetrotter hsupa which I'm assuming is for the WWAN.

    I have no bluetooth after the swap and no sign of it in device manager. I'd like to know how he got it working as well.

    I got the PICO_2011_10_03_v_5_1_39_6 from a link in one of these forums. The process on how to install the drivers is included in the same topic. I am running GPS, WiFi and soon GSM on my Windows 7 x64 Samsung Slate.
    BTW. The option driver I downloaded from the Samsung Site. One word of advice, do not run the full installation. When you double-click on the EXE just select the option to make driver diskettes and point it to a folder on your desktop. This will make the option WiFi work but all the other drivers are as previously stated.

    Correction: I have a Bluettoth Adapter in Device Manager but bluetooth is not working. Sorry for the misleading info.

    How has the solderless SIM card socket held up? What carrier are you using?

    Thx.

    I had a thought about the lack of bluetooth if you insert the wifi/3g/gps mini pci express. I was thinking if it would be possible to get a small usb bluetooth module and solder it to the usb port internally. Its only 4 wires and usb can support multiple devices on the same bus.

    What do you think?

    The H01US 3G model has a broadcom bluetooth chipset which seems to be soldered on the motherboard. Samsung recently updated driver for this bluetooth chipset, and also the driver for GTM671w.

    Ive got the au one with no 3g, an was thinking of installing the gtm671w module which is 3g wifi and gps, but from what i have read that leaves me with no bluetooth which i need to connect to my incar pc bluetooth audio. If i understand you you are saying there is an onboard bluetooth chipset n so will still have bluetooth if i install the gtm671w module. I am hoping this is the case.
