Got a galaxy tab 7 SCHI800BKV verizon wireless tab. It has no rim/sim port. Question is if I root the device will it be possible to set my country's CDMA operator in the device?
Thanks for your help.

The device may have to be unlocked first. Rooting will not Unlock the device. You will also need information from the network you want to run the device on. Like if the device is supported on their network, if they are able to active the device (they will be able to tell you if they support it if you give them the ESN/MEID) and what their mobile carrier code is (SID/NID/MCC).
I did find this info that may help once it is unlocked:
From here, I will walk you through programming the tablet for ota activation with that carrier.
If its the verizon galaxy tab, to get to the programming menu go to the notepad and type **772 to get to the manual programming.
the spc code will always be 000000
from here touch down 3 times
clear out the directory number with 10 0's
then hit down
then clear out the msin with 10 0's
from here touch down
here you will change the system id to what is necessary for that carrier.
then you will hit left or right and then enter
then hit down 4 times and you should see mcc, put the mcc number here
then hit down 4 times, and the home sid should match the one you input, then you will change the NID for that carrier as well
then you will hit down 64 times, and make sure cdma homesys reg is yes
then hit down 6 times to where it says slot cycle index, change this to 1 by hitting touch here and clear it and hit 1
then exit service
Generally speaking, rooting is completely unrelated to unlocking.
CDMA unlocking is also more difficult than SIM unlocking a GSM phone, and CDMA phones need to be activated on the network, unlike sticking a SIM in an unlocked GSM phone and doing whatever you want. You'll need help from both carriers (Verizon to unlock, your carrier to activate) in order to do this.
