For the sake of your blood pressure, do not try to call Samsung customer "support" to raise this issue with them. The reaction I got from the other end when I tried to explain the nature of the problem was such that, just a couple minutes into the effort, I said "This is futile. Never mind." and terminated the call.

I tried to use their web site form, too. That is also broken. It lets you select WiFi-only Galaxy Tabs, but then gives you no choice for the model number it insists you must choose.

I'm sensing a pattern, here... It does not speak well of Samsung. As such: Even if I keep this tablet, I'll think twice before ever again considering a Samsung mobile device. I certainly won't be recommending them anytime soon.

I've been dealing with them through Samsung Support's Facebook page. I at least get some attempts at help there and they understand that there is an issue and say they have reported it but that it's "being worked on." Nothing beyond that.
