Question Can I start/set up Nexus 7 LTE without a sim card?


I am in India and one of my friend is bringing me Nexus 7 LTE unlocked from USA.

He doesn't have a micro sim and neither do I.

Can we test/setup Nexus 7 without a SIM card?

Yes you can without problem, you skip the step about sim card
Currently I don't have a SIM card on my N7 LTE, and I regularly change roms

In the US (unsure about t-mobile outside US) you can get a t-mobile micro sim card, sometimes free or $0.99 but currently $10, and activate it for 200MB/month free data. Wonderful starter program and great for developers too.
