X WWAN card problem - Windows 10 - Thinkpads Forum
I had to dismantle the whole computer and remove the motherboard for the first time, good learning experience to get to the sim card tray. When I was able to push out the regular sim card, I noticed the small pins in the rear had been damaged.
It's a really fragile design and anyone with a nano sim should be very careful when using it with the X so the sim card adapter doesn't destroy the pins. I put a regular sim card back while looking under a bright light to see what was going on inside the sim tray, and as the card was pushed in I could see the twisted metal pins.
Eventually two of the three rear pins broke off. Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Ericsson WWAN
Determined not to give up, I found a post by a guy who repaired his OnePlus sim tray after a similar accident by soldering Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Ericsson WWAN pins to his sim card slot https: I decided to try this, so I went ahead and ripped out one of the sim card trays from my old and beaten burner Samsung Galaxy Duo I don't use the second Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Ericsson WWAN card tray so it didn't matter and went to work. To get to the pins in the X, I had to cut off the metal covering above the sim card tray.
I did this successfully without hampering structural integrity and went to work with the solder gun.

After lots of trial and error haven't soldered for decades I got two new pins soldered on and it looked like they would line up properly, albeit slightly higher than the non-damaged pin. I put the computer back together and powered it on. I then popped a nano Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Ericsson WWAN card back into the X my "redesign" made nano sims possible to install without getting stuck and to my extreme demise Windows 10 didn't see the sim card.
Nano sim or no sim, Windows 10 just shows "insert sim" under the cellular label. Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Ericsson WWAN I put a regular sim Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Ericsson WWAN inside, Windows didn't even see the cellular connection, so I am guessing the sim card tray has been destroyed or shorted out somehow thanks to the soldering job and the pins breaking off in the first place.
I'm not going to buy a new motherboard since I could just get a proper 4G dongle for much less money, but it would have been fun to have built-in WWAN in the X just for the novelty of it. This experiment proves it is possible to use even the old Ericsson fg with a modded bios on the X on Windows 10, as long as your sim card tray hasn't been fried. My mom's T which the fg came from has a much better sim card slot design with a pull tab that releases the sim card, I wish the X had that as well.
