Most Reliable Way to Replace Phone with Tablet
I've been researching how to do this all day. It started from an article that seemed to promote UppWireless — a data-only provider who claims you can replace your carrier, yet they are sold out of SIM cards and appear to be nearly inactive as far as Twitter, etc. goes.
I have a Nexus 5 but thought about getting a Nexus 7 to activate with a data-only plan from either T-Mobile or even Verizon which might seem like the best choice. A few online articles say you can activate a Nexus 7 through Verizon, however, Verizon reps tell me that the phone needs to be from them and have their "transmitters"? I guess I'm getting mixed information and was curious if anyone knows how to do this.
Verizon has the Nexus 7 on backorder for 2 months. Do they block Google Voice or other services that could allow you to replace their phone plans?
P.S. Sprint's reps even stated that you cannot activate a Nexus 7 from Google with them. Same answer was provided that you need to have some internal mechanism on the device for it to work.
