T440p Wwan/M.2 question

#1 Post by Jacques83 » Wed Jun 10, 2020 2:13 am

HI all,

New to the forum, not necessarily new to Thinkpads :).

I've just "upgraded" from a T500 to a T440p that I picked up for peanuts.

I'm about to begin upgrading, and I've removed the WWAN card - I've read that this slot takes an M.2 Sata card.

Question I have is: The wwan card appears to have different connectors to the M.2 SATA cards I've been searching for online.

I've found a decently priced M.2 2242 drive near where I live, but i want to be certain it'll fit before i pull the trigger.

Can anyone confirm they have successfully removed wwan and replaced with m.2 sata?

All the info i can find online suggests that people have started out with an empty wwan slot.

Thanks,

Also, how to share images?

Seems my IMGUR links aren't working...

You need to copy the BBCode (message boards & forums) links from Imgur.
Those include .jpg in their name.
To change their size, you can select their Sizes: Original · Small Square · Big Square · Small Thumbnail · Medium Thumbnail · Large Thumbnail · Huge Thumbnail
further down next to the imgur pic.

Also, don't use their original HUGE size!

(PS: I changed those links for you).

In my T440p I use the 240GB one from here: https://www.mydigitaldiscount.com/mydig ... h_e20=42mm

Thanks.

So the M.2 will definitely fit even though the WWAN card and the M.2 SSD have different form factors?

As long as that M.2 has the 3 connectors (from your 2nd, smaller picture).

Cool, thanks. I can see the images on Tapatalk, couldn’t see them on my laptop even after you changed the links...
