You need a WWAN card that's compatible with your service provider's network - - the card requires the driver.  The SIM card by itself is not functional - you need the WWAN card to make the connection to your provider network.

Not unless you ordered the system with a WWAN card - and even if you did, chances are that any card that dates from when this system was  new (probably somewhere between 7-8 years ago) would likely need to be replaced to work with a wireless PCS data network at this point.

WWAN cards were/are not standard - they are optional in some markets at purchase.  I don't think Dell even offers the cards  in the US market at this time, since the data providers generally supply their own hardware for their networks when you sign a  data contract with Verizon, AT&T, etc.
