On Dell laptops the sim card is usually underneath the battery, you need to remove the battery to expose it, it will either be flat under the battery or a slot in the compartment wall.

If I have an ATT SIM from my xps laptop... can I just put it into this new laptop, or do I have to tell AT&T? should it even matter?

thanks.

It shouldn't matter but then you will need to configure the Wireless software accordingly, you may need to talk to AT&T about the settings.

but at the very least you can put it in and see if the software recognises it.

yep... I just changed 'em out and I'm online with the new one. Not sure why there was an ATT card in there when I got the new laptop.

I thought I had gotten GOBI2... not sure what it is, but it said on their side that it would work with all the carriers. Is this true?

If you bought the Dell with a carrier option they usually ship you a SIM card from that carrier but it's not activated. So if you have your own one that works you can probably just toss the other one if you haven't singed any other agreements along with the laptop.

As for working with any service, that's probably right unless the WWAN card is locked to a provider, which I haven't seen Dell do at least not in Australia.
