Finally make sure that the sim you have is compatible with your tablet data plan, and your APN settings should be as follows for mobile data only.

APN: BROADBAND
MCC: 310
MNC: 410

Prepaid T-Mo Sim + LG G Pad 8.3 LTE
This could be the most fustrating device...at least for me.
I have a rooted G Pad I bought on Craiglist for 150. Works great. I got a TMo sim, applied the APN settings...NOTHING.

I have tried this on 4.2.2 & 4.4.2
I installed the radio switcher app, it says its not compatible with my device.

Is it because I'm rooted? I dunno where else to go, it will not pick up the network. I have tried 3 SIM cards (2 post pay & 1 pre pay)

Are the T-Mobile sim cards provisioned as tablet lines?

While I knew the tablet did not support 3G, I didn't realize it didn't support 4G (HSPA+) either. Once I entered LTE coverage, it worked great.

I found the same... works fine when there is T-Mobile LTE coverage, but T-Mobile coverage in New Hampshire is quite bad and LTE is even worse. But since I am using the free 200mb plan and it works in my town, I can't complain too much

Hi, so I have the same VK810 tablet...before updating to 4.4.2 the tablet was working great on t-mobile LTE however once I updated at first I didn't get any signal but once I inserted a verizon SIM into the machine and applied a few more updates that just released (i think) it then recognized my t-mobile SIM and showed me bars of service.

However even after updating the APN, I still get the activation incomplete message and when I turn wifi off, I get no service so I am stumped as well. I am considering swapping in a new SIM as maybe my SIM is too old or something

I am going to try the service menu item and re-check the APN settings. I even made sure to enable the roaming feature as the request of T-mobile tech support
