    Guys, i recently bought a Dell Inspiron 1545 and it has a SIM Card slot under the battery. Can i use it to connect to the internet using GPRS.

    I have an Airtel Sim Card with GPRS activated and i use it to connect to the internet using my phone..

    If your Inspiron 1545 is anything like my XPS M1330, the answer to this question is no. You will require a WWAN card (the Dell 5530 card is an example) that is placed in a slot next to your WLAN card. When I asked Dell if anyone sold these in India they said that they weren't aware of anybody who did.

    The Dell 5530 I mentioned isn't available in India either.
