Sorry, no SIM card Slot. You would need to have one of the two Tmobile USB Modems that are on the Modem Supported list. The Modem list is available from a link in the description area. This MUST have a seperate USB Modem from your preferred carrier in order to work as a 3G/4G device. Without one, it is nothing more then a small Cable / DSL Router.\
I would like to know how they are supporting several Express Card Modems without having an Expresscard Slot. I am willing to bet you will need to buy an Express Card to USB Adapter. I dont see where one is included. So if you are using an Express Card 3G/4G Cellular Modem, I recommend you check this feature out more completely.
Keep in mind, I see no support for Cell Phones. Cradlepoint Portable 3G/4G Roputers also support Cell Phones (certain models check to see if yours is supported) So if you want to use the device with a Cellphone, the Zyxel is NOT for you.]
So , just to clarify, if you do not have a USB Modem WITH a Monthly Service Plan , on the approved Modem list, from Verizon, Sprint, Clear, ATT, T-Mobile, Rogers, Virgin Mobile (and a few other carriers are possible if you have a Unlocked ,or a No Carrier Branded Modem listed at the bottom of the list. If you do not understand that, you most likely do not have one) You will NOT be able to use this as a 3G/4G Wireless Hotspot Type Router. You will only be able to plug it into a WIRED Internet Connection, such as your home, office or hotel.But once you disconnect from a WIRED location, you will not have Internet Service.
Below is an example of a Verizon USB Modem (UMW190). Solely used as an example of what one looks like. Although I did check and it is on the approved modem list (Link Below).
