Please note: Inserting a SIM card is only possible on models with WWAN/UMTS module.
Depending on your country and model, you might receive an offer from the VAIO selected telecom operator. In that case the SIM card is either in the operator SIM pack inside the carton box or already inserted in the SIM card slot. If the SIM card is not provided with your computer, you can purchase one from your preferred telecom operator.
