The Dell Latitude D630 laptop contains a SIM card slot, like that of a cell phone, so you can connect to wireless 3G networks on your computer as you travel. The SIM card slot is located in the battery compartment, behind the battery; accessing it lets you install or remove a SIM card as part of your wireless 3G subscription. You must unlock the battery compartment cover before you can connect your SIM card.

    Shut down the computer. Disconnect the power cable and any other peripherals. Close the screen and flip the laptop upside down.

  2. 2

    Move the battery latch sliders in opposite directions. Lift the battery up and out of the computer.

    Slide your SIM card into the slot so the metal tabs contact the connections on the card. The cutaway corner of the SIM card faces away from the slot.

    Push the battery back into its slot; the sliders click into place. Re-connect the power cord and any other external devices.
