    I have the N7 with the cellular data option, but if I pop in a SIM from my TMO or ATT phones I get no data service, if I pop in the SIM from my TMO wireless hot spot I then get service. Is there some sort of different with the cell service data and the broadband data? Am missing a setting.

    Just wondering anyone else has experienced this.

    The issue is with the SIM card. The SIM card needs to be provisioned for Data only! It will not be recognized in the Nexus if you pop you phone card in there because it is also provisioned for voice.

    I noticed that with my S2 and 7.0+. I can send and receive texts with the phone card in the tablet but no data. Sucks. :D
