you can't just put a different carriers sim in the device, you have to SIM unlock it first, and it's my understanding that the FCC restrictions on sim unlocking are pretty specific. call AT&T tell them you need to use the devcie over seas see if they will give you the unlock code, or there are several options out there for unlocking just google "Galaxy Tab3 SM-T217A SIM Unlock", You'll get about 68,400 search results.

Devices:
HTC One X+ Retired
Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900A Root KoolKit ROM
Samsung Galaxy Tab3 7" JB4.2.2 SM-T217A Rooted S5 Tweaked

As far as I know, the t217a does not have voice capabilities. I use a voip app that allows me to call via data services. I use google hangouts for instant messaging. I do know that text will work but I do not have text on my plan so I don't use it. Hangouts will handle sms now. I have been told that the t217a does not have the hardware for traditional voice services but I don't know if that is true or not.
