I understand that the text feature and anytime minutes want work on the galaxy tab. I just want to use the prepaid simcard from my verizon smarphone with the Galaxy Tab so I wont have to pay phone a phone and a data plan for a tablet monthly.
I tried chatting with 2 Verizon reps but I was never give a clear answer. One would say I will need to buy both. SMH... and the other would say no and tried to get me to buy a mifi jetpack and smartphone.... I don't know if there trying to hide the fact that his can be done because of apps that would come in handy with this method like GoogleVoice, Gtalk etc.
If your smartphone runs Android, then you can buy the data plan and activate the hotspot tethering on the phone and with the WiFi activated on the tablet, you can surf the net with the tablet through the data plan in your smartphone.
I do the same between my Grand duos, Nokia E7 and Galaxy Tab P7500, my laptop and whoever I chose to give access up to 10 devices. All the devices are fed through the data plan in my P7500.
