    worth checking the APN, also how are you seeing icons on bottom of the tablet. Nexus 7 has phone like interface and icon will only appear on the top.

    Have you activated the card with your wireless provider? You didn't mention in your post what company you are using. I just wanted to make sure that you have done that.

    i know it sounds silly but when i had the same problem the solution was to put in the field apn type "default"
    At least it worked for me, I hope this helps

    How on earth you could figure it out that by entering 'default' it works? It worked for me too. Thanks a million. Worth trying: Go to mobile network settings--->Access point names---->click + sign on top, and enter default for name and next field. Good luck everyone.
