    Trying to connect it to Verizon, but it says the Radio is off. I have an active nano sim for my ipad air that I am trying to get to work on the Nexus 9, but its a no go. Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm having some difficulties too. I've installed the nano sim from my iPad Mini in the N9, and it recognizes that's on Verizon Wireless but doesn't show any signal strength. I know (think) the N9 was going to be offered on Verizon, and it should support the correct bands, but maybe the radios haven't been enabled just yet?

    I tried with Sprint in the store and over the phone. They said the IMEI number was not in their system and they couldn't activate it. I have a ticket on it from their tech support folks. In the meantime I got a Straight Talk BYOT sim card and got a one month plan.

    Interesting.. I have an old Sprint SIM that I popped into my tablet to see what would happen, and at the very least it registered on their network and seemed like it would work which is much more than I can say about my test on Verizon where it seems they're flat out blocking it from even registering.

    I wonder if Sprint would really need you to be able to register the IMEI with them for it to work. I had a Nexus 6 for a little while, and it worked just fine on Verizon's network even though it's IMEI wasn't in their system either. I just popped the SIM from my Moto X into it, and it worked without having to do any sort of registration. I assume the difference here between the N6 and N9 is the fact that the N6 is very similar to the Moto X while the N9 doesn't really compare with anything on Verizon's network today.
