    Red face Dell Wireless 5530 HSPA module

    Wonder does anyone have the Wireless 5530 HSPA module in the (latest) Latitudes? Is it locked only to AT&T or SIM cards from other providers supporting HSPA can work as well?

    Is it possible to control the WWAN radio on/off via software and not the wireless switch (like leave WiFi and BT on, but turn off WWAN completely).
    [ Dell Latitude E6400 ]
    P9600 | 8GB | GMA 4500MHD | WiFi Link 5300 | X25-M 160GB | 14.1" WXGA LED | WWAN

    People judge you by your actions, not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold, but so has a hard-boiled egg.
    - Good Reading

    You can set up the switch to control any number of radio interfaces in bios, so yes.

    I bought a E series with 5530 WWAN card without a contract (in the UK where Dell push Vodafone 3G contracts) and I'm able to use it with Orange and T-Mobile 3G USIM cards.

    It's not locked.

    I'm using it in Singapore.
