How can i know there is the chip inside it?

You'd know because it is an OPTIONAL part and you would have had to pay an extra $125+ for it.

That's how you know.

The SIM card won't be in the system -- that comes from whatever company you have your wireless data contact with.

RE: L502x sim card slot

But in this case needs an antenna 3g too right. I thought about putting two of these:

or will it work only with the original dell staying at the back of the LCD screen (which is not installed on my DELL XPS L502X)
