SonyVaio VGN-TZ398U/XC - Wireless WAN: Integrated Mobile Broadb?

SonyVaio VGN-TZ398U/XC - Wireless WAN: Integrated Mobile Broadband:

My specs say:
"Wireless WAN : Optional Sprint® Mobile Broadband service. 15. Free Month Offer: Limited time offer. Subject to change ...(etc)... "
(http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10151&catalogId=10551&langId=-1&productId=8198552921665411974)

Can I "unblock" Wireless WAN, so I can use it with any carrier? Is there anyway to transform my SonyVaio VGN-TZ398U/XC, so that specs are the same or similar as VGN-P588E/Q ?
They say: "Wireless WAN : Integrated Mobile Broadband
15. 3G enabled for tri-band HSPA (850/1900/2100 MHz) Subscription with a third party carrier is required. Service activation and other fees apply. Terms & Conditions and additional restrictions apply."
(http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=8198552921665749284)?

Thanks.

You are not obligated to use Sprint. If you look at the first sentence it says "Optional Sprint....'

Yes you can use any carrier you want. Most new computers today come preload with AOL, Sprint, AT&T. In hopes you will choose one of them since it is already loaded, but not activated.

It's quite cool and fast as described, I used the Vodafone Mobile connect HSDPA and I can confirm the good performance.
One serious issue are the costs, as you pay for the downloaded MB once you exceed your free data limit,
Not sure if you want to use it privately, then you need to monitor the amount of downloaded data closely otherwise you will be poor very soon :-). Check at the Vodafone Home page the costs.
