Activate 3G or 4G LTE on Android tablets
To activate 3G or 4G on Android tablets, you need to first be using a cellular company that provides this service. The 3G and 4G networks are communication protocols provided by a cellular telephone company. Therefore, your tablet must have a slot for a SIM card in order to access the cellular data network. It is also possible that yout tablet came with a SIM card pre-installed and is hidden and cannot be removed.
If you have any question about if your tablet has a SIM card slot, or if your tablet has a SIM card pre-installed, please refer to the tablet’s documentation or contact the store you purchased it from.
Once you have a SIM card inserted into the slot, you need to activate the service on the Android tablet. Here is how to do that:
- Touch the Apps icon to open the list of apps on the tablet
- Touch Settings
- Depending on your tablet manufacturer and Android version: Touch the Connections tab or the Wireless & Networks tab. Note that you may need to touch the More option to see the Mobile Networks tab, depending on the version of Android running on your tablet
- Touch Mobile Networks. If you receive a message asking you to insert a SIM, then your tablet does not have a SIM installed, or it is installed incorrectly
- Touch the Data Enabled check box to enable your 3G or 4G mobile data service. If you want the network to work while roaming, touch the Data Roaming check box
