Turn On or Off Cellular in Windows 11

Some Windows 11 devices have a SIM card or eSIM in them that lets you connect to a cellular data network (ex: 5G), so you can get online in more places by using a cellular signal.

If your Windows 11 device doesn’t have a SIM card or eSIM, you can still connect to a cellular network by plugging in an external cellular device (also called a cellular modem or mobile broadband device). Either way, you must have a data plan from a mobile operator (ex: AT&T, T-Mobile, etc…) to connect.
