    Default Question for future owners

    If you are getting the data connectable tablet, which carrier are you choosing? I'm having trouble figuring out who I should choose and what it will cost per month. Thanks!

    I would base your decision on which carrier has the best coverage in your area. Most people will go with Verizon but I will probably go with AT&T. AT&T has LTE and HSPA+ and works very well in my city.

    I'll probably use the prepaid T-Mobile SIM I've been using for testing. Their $30/5G plan is perfect for tablets.

    IIRC, the Nexus 7 (and tablets in general) do not work with that plan. T-Mobile blocks them.

    How do they know? Traffic from most Android devices looks the same.

    T-Mobile checks the IMEI. Don't think there's a way to get around that. They offer data-only plans though.

    Sticking with V. I am hoping that I can pull the unlimited data sim from my phone and use it on the tablet and drop to my old flip phone. Would that work?

    I am going to get the 32GB LTE version here in the UK, and will use a pay as you go sim for data... when required on rare occasions.
    Mostly will be wifi use.

    Are the carrier plans pay as you go, or do you have to have a monthly subscription. I can only see using the LTE connection when I am travelling. Everywhere else I have access to Wifi.

    People forget,
    LTE is Expensive.... It chews up Data and Spits it out like a bad habit.... you better have about $50.00 a month set aside in the budget if you plan on using LTE Data on this device on a daily basis.
    You've been warned.. :-)
