Hello, hopefully this is the right place. I have the 'ZOOSTORM TOUCH SCREEN 11.6" LAPTOP, INTEL 1037U, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB SSD, WINDOWS​ 10' and it comes with a SIM card slot, I want to use my personal three reward SIM 200mb free every month but i am having no luck. Is it possible or is this slot not used for this purpose? Any help is appreciated! :)

It won't be a regular SIM slot for the SIM you use in your phone.

It's most likely for a pre-paid 4G or 3G data card for mobile internet access using wireless wide area network (WWAN).

The cards are supplied by mobile network providers.

Also, I've moved this thread as, strictly speaking, your query has nothing to do with Windows. We are discussing hardware here.

So there is no way I can use a pay as you go SIM as it is incompatible? Is there no software I can get that gets around this?

Not to my knowledge.

I'm just telling you what the slot is for, ask staff in a phone network shop for more info.

My niece has an HP that had a sim card slot in it. But you had to install an HP program to use it. But it worked quite good

But it wasnt that easy to configure the settings in it after you installed the program !
