rugged laptop with GSM modle MC7305


#1

Hello new friends, I hope you had a good Christmas holiday so far.
I bought a second hand rugged Panasonic CF-19 Gen 7 with windows. main reason for this was I busted 3 laptops screens this year where I am working in Zanzibar. also as networks are primitive I was attracted by the cellular functions.
which it doesn’t HaHa :frowning:

I have put my sim EE from UK works in my phone. in this device doesn’t recognize it.
I am no techy…so I am thinking the GSM device is out dated?
heres the spec. please advise my options or if I am doing something very obviously wrong !!! :unamused:

Sierra wireless
MC7305
fimware: SW19X15C_01.12
DATA CLASS: GPRS, EDGE,UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA, LTE
IMEI: 353515050149269

MANY THANKS to any help

Hi,

Generically speaking the MC7305 should work with most of the networks in Zanzibar, beyond that I cannot really comment about the compatibility of the SIM (although again generically speaking it should work as my EE SIM’s do).
