I have an old Gateway ZA8 notebook computer and it says I can put in a 3G sim card, what is it for.
I was under the impression 3G Sim was for a phone.

It would allow you to use mobile internet. Of course, all cards now would be 4G/LTE, and probably smaller than the card your laptop was designed to take.

If you do want to use a laptop 'on the go', then a smartphone will become a Wireless Access Point, and you connect to it like you would a home router.
