I recently purchased the A01US version of the chromebook3 which is wi-fi- only.
I noticed on the back there there is a door where the USIM goes but inside there is a rubber tab blocking the slot.
I was wondering if this chromebook could be upgraded to the 3G like the H01US version?

Would you need to install the radio as well as the SIM tray?
I'm thinking maybe pulling one from a broken 3G model could be viable.
If anyone has done this, let me know, if not, I would love to be the first one to attempt it.

Probably the radio is not there, BUT they use the same body for both models. It's possible but unlikely that you can obtain and install the 3G radio, or get it installed. Bottomline the hardware is not there.
