Does anybody here have their Tab 10.1 set up with AT&T? AT&T told me that since they don't sell that model they are unsure of settings. I can get the thing to work with WIFI and settings for EDGE.
Any help is appreciated.
OK---After extensive internet research, turns out that I am not the only one with this problem. I've been back to the AT&T store 3X with 3 different techs working on the tab with no joy! I could get "edge" (2G) and wifi but not 3G.
For others having this problem, here is what U need to do.
First, check ur APN settings. Here is what worked for my GT-P7500.
