Question about Sony VAIO VGN-TZ398U/XC 11.1" Laptop

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.

I wonder if the motherboard has bluetooth integrated or I have to put an external bluetooth devise


One way to find out:
Click on the start button > right click on 'computer' > choose properties > (top left) device manager > you will see a list of drivers
Bluetooth should be near the top
IF you don't see Bluetooth, you will need to purchase an external Bluetooth receiver.

Does it actually have a wireless network adapter? Check the network adapter settings. Does it show both LAN and wireless? If it does you may need to use one of the Function keys to launch the interface to turn on the wireless.

Does a samsung stratospher need a sims card to ativate?


It depends on the carrier. After checking the specs though the phone comes back as a 4G LTE device so you will need a SIM card for ATT, Sprint, and Verizon. If you are on something like Straight Talk or MetroPCS, then they do not use SIMs

Bluetooth & sound


Generally, connecting phones via bluetooth to a laptop just allows for file transfer between the two devices. It is not to input sound from the phone through the speakers of the laptop. You would need a bluetooth audio device for that such as bluetooth speakers or headphones

Is it equipped with bluetooth? Do a search for bluetooth on your computer and it should bring up the bluetooth icon. Go "start", "search", then "all files", and type in bluetooth and search.
