Question about Samsung Galaxy Tab Tablet PC

1 Answer

I bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab from a Telstra network provider without a sim card. I am with Vodafone for my iPhone and have 3G on the sim. I want to put the sim card into the Tab for internet access. How do I set the Tab to pick up the sim and use the Vodaphone network. Just putting the sim card in the tab is not working and I can't see any settings to be changing .

The galaxy tab will be locked to the provider you got it from, which is why your sim isnt being recognised. You will need to unlock the tab to allow it to accept any sim. To get it unlocked you need to request an unlock code from Telstra

Is a samsung galaxy tab 4 7.0 compatible with straighttalk ?


It depends on which model of the Galaxy Tab 4 you have. The unlocked Galaxy Tab 4 3G is compatible with the Straight Talk GSM network and has a SIM card slot. There is a Wi-fi only model which will only talk to a cellular network through a hot-spot device.

I hope this helps.

Network problem


If you're not registered with a service provider they will block you as soon as they recognize the sim card. Sometimes it takes a little longer than others. It may be that the vodacom sim came with the tablet and had a trial period. One that 'trial' period expired the block it.

Unlock codes tablets


the best way to do this is to get a unlocking subsidy pin.
on the back of the device there should be a network operator who the phone/tab is branded to. you will need to contact them direct and put in a request.
this code usually cost about 20.00 but once you have the code it will unlock your device forever and its the safest way to unlock it rather then go to the market where they may damage the software that is installed on the device.
