What this Warranty Covers
Lenovo warrants that each Lenovo hardware product that you purchase is free from defects in materials and
workmanship under normal use during the warranty period. The warranty period for the product starts on

by Lenovo. The warranty period and type of warranty service that apply to your product are as specified
in “Part 3 - Warranty Service Information” below. This warranty only applies to products in the country
or region of purchase.
THIS WARRANTY IS YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTY AND REPLACES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES
OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
AS SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED WARRANTIES, THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH
WARRANTIES APPLY ONLY TO THE EXTENT AND FOR SUCH DURATION AS REQUIRED BY LAW AND
ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. AS SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO
NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON THE DURATION OF AN IMPLIED WARRANTY, THE ABOVE LIMITATION
ON DURATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
How to Obtain Warranty Service
If the product does not function as warranted during the warranty period, you may obtain warranty service by
contacting Lenovo or a Lenovo approved Service Provider. A list of approved Service Providers and their
telephone numbers is available at: www.lenovo.com/support/phone.

provide the Service Provider with all system keys or passwords;
provide the Service Provider with sufficient, free, and safe access to your facilities to perform service;
remove all data, including confidential information, proprietary information and personal information, from
the product or, if you are unable to remove any such information, modify the information to prevent its
access by another party or so that it is not personal data under applicable law. The Service Provider shall

information, or personal information, on a product returned or accessed for warranty service;
• remove all features, parts, options, alterations, and attachments not covered by the warranty;

procedures.
The Service Provider will attempt to diagnose and resolve your problem by telephone, e-mail or remote
assistance. The Service Provider may direct you to download and install designated software updates.
Some problems may be resolved with a replacement part that you install yourself called a “Customer
Replaceable Unit” or “CRU.” If so, the Service Provider will ship the CRU to you for you to install.
If your problem cannot be resolved over the telephone; through the application of software updates or
the installation of a CRU, the Service Provider will arrange for service under the type of warranty service
designated for the product under “Part 3 - Warranty Service Information” below.
If the Service Provider determines that it is unable to repair your product, the Service Provider will replace
it with one that is at least functionally equivalent.

remedy under this Limited Warranty is to return the product to your place of purchase or to Lenovo for a
refund of your purchase price.
Replacement Products and Parts
When warranty service involves the replacement of a product or part, the replaced product or part becomes
Lenovo’s property and the replacement product or part becomes your property. Only unaltered Lenovo
products and parts are eligible for replacement. The replacement product or part provided by Lenovo may
not be new, but it will be in good working order and at least functionally equivalent to the original product or
part. The replacement product or part shall be warranted for the balance of the period remaining on the
original product.

your warranty service and your contact information, including name, phone numbers, address, and e-mail
address. Lenovo may use this information to perform service under this warranty. We may contact you to
inquire about your satisfaction with our warranty service or to notify you about any product recalls or safety
issues. In accomplishing these purposes, you authorize Lenovo to transfer your information to any country
where we do business and to provide it to entities acting on our behalf. We may also disclose it where

service specified for your product and the available service. Scheduling of service will depend upon the time
of your call, parts availability, and other factors.
Types of Warranty Service
1. Customer Replaceable Unit (“CRU”) Service
Under CRU Service, the Service Provider will ship CRUs to you at its cost for installation by you. CRU
information and replacement instructions are shipped with your product and are available from Lenovo at any
time upon request. CRUs that are easily installed by you are called “Self-service CRUs”. “Optional-service
CRUs” are CRUs that may require some technical skill and tools. Installation of Self-service CRUs is your
responsibility. You may request that a Service Provider install Optional-service CRUs under one of the other
types of warranty service designated for your product. An optional service offering may be available for
purchase from a Service Provider or Lenovo under which Self-service CRUs would be installed for you.
You may find a list of CRUs and their designation in the publication that was shipped with your product
or at www.lenovo.com/CRUs. The requirement to return a defective CRU, if any, will be specified in the
instructions shipped with a replacement CRU. When return is required: 1) return instructions, a prepaid
return shipping label, and a container will be included with the replacement CRU; and 2) you may be charged
for the replacement CRU if the Service Provider does not receive the defective CRU from you within thirty
(30) days of your receipt of the replacement CRU.
2. On-site Service
Under On-Site Service, a Service Provider will either repair or exchange the product at your location. You
must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the product. Some repairs
may need to be completed at a service center. If so, the Service Provider will send the product to the
service center at its expense.
3. Courier or Depot Service
14
ThinkPad GOBI Mobile Broadband User Guide
Under Courier or Depot Service, your product will be repaired or exchanged at a designated service center,
with shipping at the expense of the Service Provider. You are responsible for disconnecting the product and
packing it in a shipping container provided to you to return your product to a designated service center.
A courier will pick up your product and deliver it to the designated service center. The service center will
return the product to you at its expense.
4. Customer Carry-In Service
Under Customer Carry-In Service, your product will be repaired or exchanged after you deliver it to a
designated service center at your risk and expense. After the product has been repaired or exchanged, it will
be made available to you for collection. If you fail to collect the product, the Service Provider may dispose of
the product as it sees fit, with no liability to you.
5. Mail-In Service
Under Mail-In Service, your product will be repaired or exchanged at a designated service center after you
deliver it at your risk and expense. After the product has been repaired or exchanged, it will be returned to
you at Lenovo’s risk and expense, unless the Service Provider specifies otherwise.
6. Customer Two-Way Mail-In Service
Under Customer Two-Way Mail-In Service, your product will be repaired or exchanged after you deliver it to
a designated service center at your risk and expense. After the product has been repaired or exchanged,

shipment, the Service Provider may dispose of the product as it sees fit, with no liability to you.
7. Product Exchange Service
Under Product Exchange Service, Lenovo will ship a replacement product to your location. You are
responsible for its installation and verification of its operation. The replacement product becomes your
property in exchange for the failed product, which becomes the property of Lenovo. You must pack the
failed product in the shipping carton in which you received the replacement product and return it to Lenovo.
Transportation charges, both ways, shall be at Lenovo’s expense. If you fail to use the carton in which the
replacement product was received, you may be responsible for any damage to the failed product occurring
during shipment. You may be charged for the replacement product if Lenovo does not receive the failed
product within thirty (30) days of your receipt of the replacement product.

Appendix C. Wireless related information
Usage environment and your health
The Wireless WAN adapter emits radio frequency electromagnetic energy similar to other radio devices.
However, the level of energy emitted is much less than the electromagnetic energy emitted by wireless
devices such as a cell phone.
Because the Wireless WAN adapter operates within the guidelines found in radio frequency safety standards
and recommendations, Lenovo believes that the integrated Wireless WAN adapter is safe for use by
consumers. These standards and recommendations reflect the consensus of the scientific community and
result from deliberations of panels and committees of scientists who continually review and interpret the
extensive research literature.
In some situations or environments, the use of the Wireless WAN adapter may be restricted by the proprietor
of the building or responsible representatives of the organization. These situations and areas may include:
• Using the integrated Wireless WAN adapter in an airplane, in a hospital, near petrol stations, blasting
areas (with electro-explosive devices), medical implants, or body-worn electronic medical devices such
as pace makers.
• In any other environment where the risk of interference to other devices or services is perceived or
identified as harmful.
If you are uncertain of the policy that applies on the use of wireless devices in a specific organization like an
airport or a hospital, you are encouraged to ask for authorization to use the Wireless WAN adapter prior
to turning on the ThinkPad computer.

If no integrated wireless WAN PCI Express Mini Card has been preinstalled in your ThinkPad computer, you
can install one, provided by Lenovo as an option. Plug the wireless card option into the PCI Express Mini
Card slot. For the installation procedure, see the “Installing and replacing the PCI Express Mini Card for
wireless WAN connection” section in the user guide for your computer.
Attention: The ThinkPad computers contain an authentication mechanism. If you install an unauthorized
wireless WAN PCI Express Mini Card that is not approved for use in your ThinkPad computer, the computer
will not start, but only displays an error message and emits beeps.
RF safety compliance
The radiated energy from the antenna connected to the Wireless WAN adapter conforms to the FCC limit of
the SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) requirement regarding 47 CFR Part 2 section 1093, when the computer
was tested in the conventional orientation.
The transmission antenna for the PCI Express Mini Card is located in the LCD cover. See “Location of the
UltraConnect™ wireless antennas” in the user guide for your computer.
Emergency calls
The Wireless WAN adapters embedded in the ThinkPad computer do not support voice calls, hence their use
for essential communication is not possible, including emergency calls regarding the E911 rule.
Simultaneous use of RF transmitters
The Wireless WAN adapter is approved for simultaneous use with certain wireless transmitters. For a list of
those transmitters, refer to the latest ThinkPad Regulatory Notice, which has been uploaded on the Web site
at:
http://www.lenovo.com/support
Make sure of the following conditions when you use any other external RF option device:
1. When you use any other RF option device, you are requested to confirm that the device conforms to the
RF Safety requirement and is approved to use for your computer.
2. You must follow the RF Safety instructions of the RF option device that are included in the user manual
of the RF option device.
3. If the RF option device is prohibited to use in conjunction with another transmitters, you must turn
off all other wireless features in your computer.
