    Once the ATT service is turned off, why can't VZ service be used to activate it. it is activated thru ATT, I wanted to switch to VZ service they said couldn't not the same network. I don't understand?

    It may be due to the different radio technologies used....CDMA and GSM, by Verizon and AT&T respectively. As a UK member I'm not sure of this, but I often hear it mentioned.

    Yup, like belodion said, if your tablet only supports AT&T's frequencies, it will not work on Verizon. If the tablet supports the frequencies but is SIM-Locked, only if the carrier you bought it for unlocks it, you won't be able to use another carrier's SIM in it.

    Two reasons

    1)Verizon won't activate it.
    2)it doesn't support Verizon network (except xlte)



    To go into detail, Verizon will not activate it on their network as the imei isn't white listed for verizon.

    Now you can take an active Verizon 4GLTE sim and use it where band 4 is deployed. But you would ONLY get it to work there. No cdma or 700MHz b13 lte. And no way Verizon would activate it directly. Screen shot from fcc filing
