    I purchased a g slate from a friend to use with tmobile. I had a line that was not being used with unlimited data. The sim card when first placed in the g slate worked fine on the 4g network. About 2 hours later i started getting redirected to a tmobile page. When i called customer support they told me that i needed to cancle the line that i am trying to use in the tablet and get a line setup just for the tablet. I am new to this so bash me for it if you like but will rooting the g slate and/or unlocking help my situation?

    Yes strange. I am currenty using the tablet by connecting to my mobile phone via wifi hotspot. However the line i am wanting to use wont let me do that either. I have a total of 5 lines and all but 1 work with wifi hotspot. And of course its the one that i want to use.

    Went to the store ad had them set up a data and text plan. They claimed i could text on the g slate and when i asked where the text app was they looked stunned that it wasnt there. Anyone know of a good solution? I would love a native text app like on the dell streak but will settle for a decnt app or workaround.

    Setup google voice to use for text. Great solution for the g slate. :)

    excellent idea! I am in the transition process myself.

    my goal is at least 75% of my communication to go through google voice
