i am new with WWAN, wht do i need to know to get started?

hi guys!

i have read some regarding wwan... but never have deal with it, if i want internet ina tablet i just hotspot from my phone....

i have 15 years using computers, i doit well enough, i mean i am not a programer, but i know how to format, reinstall windows, reinstall linux instal linux distros and repairing laptops...
but i am new to this...

a friend has a Elitebook 8460p, he discovered that behind his battery , it has a SIM card slot... and he wants to use it, he, and i, suspect that this is how it works.... you go to the telephone company buy a data plan with sim card, instal the WWAN module, conect the anthenna wires, install drivers, software, insert the SIM card... and now the laptop has internet all the time eny place that has gsm coverage....

this is how we think it works, or at leas what we can get from that /SIM slot...

are we right?

if so.. we only have to see the hp part number for the wann card, purchase it and thats it?
