Good day,
I want to make an WWAN upgrade for my T61 14,1" wide screen wich does not have simm reader, wwan antenas. My machine does have 2nd mPCI-e slot.

I have found this site with how to for this upgrade. So it seems I need four items:
* Simm card reader FRU 42W2499 (can be found on ebay)
* WWAN antenna, FRU 93P4558 (cannot find any on ebay so hopefully someone here has this item for sale)
* Unlocked 3g/umts card (possible to find on ebay)
* Clear plate with WLAN, WWAN and BT (cheap on ebay)

Before hitting ebay, I've decided to ask here, because it would not be wise to buy all the items, if I do not have antennas :) Hopefully someone can offer WWAN antennas suitable for my thinkpad? or a whole kit maybe?

P.S.
I am from Lithuania, so international shipment would be required.

Edit:
Got a donor T61 machine with factory wwan, there for I no longer need items above.

I have both Sierra Wireless MC8775 WWAN (unlocked) and SIM card holder for T61/T400 widescreen version.

PM me if interested.

Thank you for reply, I'll try to find antennas first as I have little use for the rest without them. But I'll definetely keep you in mind

Thanks again.

Concerning T61, the T60 under bezel antenna is useable and you can use any ebay antenna or WLAN 3rd antenna (white one) as Main antenna on WWAN. It works (I've used it this way) and has good reception.

On T61 the MAIN antenna is in the lid and if it is not installed by the factory, it is major pita to install.
