I have just recently acquired a pristine X301 (2777-MSU) and I am completely in love with this model! I am interested in installing a WWAN card and what have found searching on the net is that there are 3 possibilities. I live in Jakarta, Indonesia and it seems that we are running on GSM 900 and 1800 plus UMTS 2100. Can anyone in this forum advice me on which card would be the most reliable one? I read somewhere that Gobi has a better reception than the Ericsson although it seems that this was hearsay.
I did read someone on this forum mentioning that they were successful in installing the Gobi 2000 but had to run a modified BIOS. Is this safe? CORRECTION: I found this page from Lenovo so I guess Gobi 2000 is available for the X301 http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloa ... MIGR-68493
