Unlocked HTC One using Tab 7.7 verizon data only SIM
I have a question about using a verizon 4g LTE SIM card from my samsung galaxy tab 7.7 data only plan. Basically, if you buy one of verizon's tablets, they will let you get data only 4g LTE service that is provided via a microSIM. I don't make many phone calls, and any that I do I could just make using VOIP.
So I activated the data only SIM in the verizon store, all the while telling them it was for my galaxy tab (they are very clear that they don't offer data only plans for smartphones). When I took out the SIM and plugged it into my new unlocked HTC one (I think it's the US unlocked version) the it says "preparing SIM" for a second, then nothing. No recognition of the SIM, no LTE bars, nothing. So is there a way to get the phone to recognize the SIM. Do I need to register the HTC one's IMEI# to the SIM? Is that even possible?
There are lots of accounts of people doing something similar with iPhone 5's from verizon, so this has to be possible.
Thanks for any help.
