Is it not a sim card slot.

The slot you are mentioning sounds like a card reader, its used for SD memory cards which you would normally use in a camera.

    I have the same problem the sim card falls inside then you have to open the laptop to remove it.@Myke it is not a card reader it is a sim card slot there is a sign of sim card there but it seems that there is no sim card holder there because the card falls inside.

    Have you guys actually tried reading the manual? This would help because I have never seen or would understand why in the HELL Dell would put a sim card slot in a laptop.

    I have looked at the model you have all mentioned and there is no mention of a SIM CARD slot but there is a 5 in 1 card reader. THIS IS WHAT THE SLOT IS.

    I suggest that because you are all seem a bit dim, you should take your laptops and sell them to someone who actually knows what the **** they are doing.

When i used to keep the sim in my dell 1464 the sim slot is bigger than my sim card can any one suggest me how to use that

Computers don't support SIM cards, so don't insert. If you are referring to an SD slot, just pick up an adapter. You can get a universal one on eBay real cheap.

There is a slot for inserting SIM card under the battery on my inspiron 15r n5010. I want to know how to set up drivers/firmware and software to set up internet access via 3G network using a sim inserted...

The SIM card holder is there to support an OPTIONAL 3G wireless broadband card: it is not a standard feature and setup will depend on the brand of internal 3G broadband card that is installed.

Compatible internal 3G mini-card may be quite expensive and using an external device (such as Pocket Wifi which is a 'MIFI' device which can conveniently be connected to your PC/Laptop via a secure Wifi connection) might be a better alternative.

Hope it helps.

I have dell inspiron n5010. It has SIM slot. What kind of SIM card can I use?

You can use a SIM card that is attached to a cell phone network Data Plan. You can then use your 3G/4G access that you have purchased monthly from a cell phone provider to get on the internet anywhere.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Sir i have a dell inspiron1464 laptop but the simslot is very large then sim how to insert?

Are you sure it is the SIM slot you are looking at? There may also be a memory card reader, which would be much bigger than a SIM card.

If you remove the laptop's main battery pack, you should find another slot hidden in the battery bay, which will be the correct size for a standard SIM card.

Yes it is useful, one can copy phone numbers to different cards if one has the software and yes you can insert your 3G sim into it, whether your phone service provider will allow it to work, is another matter.

I have SIM card slot in my Dell inspiron N5010 laptop , can I insert 2G / 3G sim to access internet like 3G mobile

If you don't have the 3G card installed in your laptop, you won't have access to any cell network.
In that case, the sim slot is just a dummy slot.
