Back story over, with the casing off my tablet I also noticed a extra tray with no external access next to the SD card tray (as is shown in the picture below (Sorry for my crappy paint edited picture, was trying to get everything posted fast)) and the engraving on said extra tray reads, "MD-SIM-SUPPORT MT SM-T700" while the engraving on the SD tray reads, "SMD-SD-SUPPORT SM-T700." Now in New Zealand rather than buying the SM-T700 you can buy the SM-T705 which has external access to the SIM tray.
My question is: What is the hardware difference, if any, in the SM-T705 vs the SM-T700 that allows it to use the SIM tray? other than the fact that the T700 has no external access to the SIM tray and if there is no difference, Is it possible to load a SIM into the T700 and have it function correctly? I am willing to flash a different version of android if the difference is in the ROM.
