    It worked fine for me on the Verizon one.

    I bougth the sprint one and this tip above does not work.
    I decided to return and get the at&t tablet, I read that it does not have activation screen.
    Also the At&t one comes with 16 gb of internal memory (not as a micro sd as in the sprint) with I prefer cause I can add a 16 gb micro sd and have 32 gb total, and be able to transfer files back and forward.
    The At&t is sold for 629$ (no additional shipping or taxes are charged) at amazon so it was cheaper than the sprint which was 599$ plus tax = 649$ at best buy
    Also the at&t has a sim card slot you can use as a phone anywhere in the world (quad band).
