First off, I am absolutely in love with this Tab! I waited long and hard to finally find the right device for me. I even tried a few other models and returned them immediately. I am currently using Verizon for cell phone service, and I am now seriously contemplating taking this table back and buying the 4g LTE model. Any thoughts on that? Best Buy told me that it will work with Verizon, but Amazon says AT&T. any input on that too? Also, why would I have to sign a 2 year contract on the device with my cell carrier, when I am paying full price for the tablet, unlike a cell phone where you get it at a reduced price for signing a contract ( subsidization ) I have about 3 weeks to decide before I am out of the return policy.
