hello!
I have amilo pro v3545.It has integrated SIM card slot.
I have problem make it work.
In bios it's turned ON.
Driver is installed. (i have tried 2 diferent versions)
Software is 3G Watcher.I tried version (3G Watcher)from DVD that came with notebook, and i tried latest version from Fujitsu-siemens site.
SIM card is inserted, but do not work.
I use Win XP SP2.In my device manager this hardware is listed but when i try to "query" modem it dont responds for hours.
3G Watcher status is DEVICE POWERED DOWN or something like that.
Any suggestions?
When I press the wireless buton on my notebook a window pops up, but i can not change UMTS on or off.It's off, and it's grayed out.

What to do?

Some networks like 3 in the UK make thier sims unreadable in anything apart from thier networks phone. I have a 3 phone and my sim only works in that.

Try another 3G sim from a friend on a different network?

UTMS problem

I have bought Amilo Pro v3545 and I have the same problem. Everything is exact. I do not know what to do. I really want to know whether you solved the problem or not. I am going to ask reseller about this. I have tried almost everything and searched all over the internet but nothing. If I have any success I will inform everybody.

UMTS problem

Postby ivo1st » Thu Jul 26, 2007 5:37 pm

Hello everybody!
I made a very big research about this problem. It is not actually a problem. This UMTS module is optional for Amilo Pro V3545. It has everything that is needed (SIM card slot and antenna) but does not have the real module. Amilo Pro V3525 has this UMTS module (but processor is T2050, hard drive capacity is lower, wireless LAN is optional, Bluetooth is also optional and it has Intel 950 video card). This module is Sierra Wireless MC8755, it works on mini PCI Express bus. I think you can buy it additionally. I tried to find the price and it is between 240 and 350 Euro. I think it is not worthed to buy it.

If you have additional questions, ask them freely!

Cheers!

If somebody finds a price of this module, please post the price!

I want to note something. This module MC8755 is at the end of its life and it is replaced by MC8775. If someone also finds this module post the prise!

Thanks!
