I have a new to me dell e6420 xfr laptop running a fresh install of windows 7 64.


It came with a dw5800 internal broadband minicard and verision simm,

I am on att and have a att data line so I wanted to switch to att and got a sim from att to do that.


I installed the sim activated it and even got it to connect and work, until that first reboot now it doesn't and one hurdle I need to cross is when I enter the att APN if I reboot it resets back to the verision APN so how do I unlock this internal broadband minicard  so it will stop resetting back to version APN.


I have been jumping around hunting a comp tech forum to help if this isnt the right place please direct me to one,


Many thanks,
