As far as I know, the providers (AT&T, Verizon, TMobile) in the USA neither sell nor support mobile connection for Nexus tablets. So what is the point of buying a Nexus tablet with 4G support in the USA?

  • AT&T and T-Mobile both offer data-only plans. You can even buy the N7 from Google Play with a T-Mobile SIM included. Why are you under the impression that they can't be used? Where did you see any information that makes this claim? – eldarerathis Jun 21 '14 at 2:08
  • @eldarerathis: In the link below, I do not see any SIM card for Nexus. This is link is for the case when we have the tablet already. att.com/shop/wireless/byop.html – Shibli Jun 21 '14 at 2:20

    AT&T's site has various SIMs labelled for popular devices and/or devices they sell themselves on that list, but they're not actually different. The "tablet" section shows 8 SIM cards, but look at the pictures. There are only two varieties there, which can be identified by their shape/size: mini SIM and micro SIM. The N7 takes a micro SIM. The fact that they chose to label their SIMs like that doesn't mean that the network only supports those 8 devices. If you filter the full shop to SIMs you can see them with more generic (accurate) labeling: att.com/shop/wireless/devices/att.html – eldarerathis Jun 21 '14 at 5:59
  • For example, here's their "SIM for 4G LTE Android and Windows Phone devices" (i.e a micro SIM): att.com/shop/wireless/devices/att/… – eldarerathis Jun 21 '14 at 6:09
