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.

Hardware specs for a dell latitude d620


try here for the specs, manuals (including service manual) and drivers for your laptop

http://support.ap.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=au&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=LATITUDE%20D620&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

be aware that building a laptop the way major companies do is to add all the wiring for all options before it's finally put together so the plugs and sockets are there in case they are required.
