What you need is a laptop/netbook with a 3g modem.some people reckon this is the best way to connect out and about on the train etc.
Only certain models of netbook have them and the net searches just bring back confusing information and duplicate specification information that is wrong or refering to other products--The problem is this seems to be the future technology but the manufacturers are trying to get rid of the old stock that do not have this function,,so they try and confuse the customer into buying the wrong model.
You will need to remove the battery compartment to see if there is a slot for a sim card usually at one end of the compartment.
The HP mini series have one but they dont plug its specification in the advertising bumf,probably because they want to get rid of old stock.Samsung do one --NC10.And asus do a new series with this function but beware,go armed with the correct model you want and make sure the shop assistant is selling you the correct model also-the spec numbers are very similar on some brands

How do I get my tangital phablet to work with my sim


Did the SIM come from a cellular provider that you have a contract with? Did you register the IMEI number from the tablet to your cellular account and SIM card? Someone needs to do that. When your purchase a phone from a cellular company and the SIM is in the package, they have already done this.

It can only come from your carrier. They have locked the SIM.

Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
Your phone is asking for a PUK code?

Is your phone asking for a PUK code. PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Personal Unblocking Key, or PIN Unblocking Key.

This can only come from your cellphone carrier and usually the company that still owns the phone under the agreement. Sometimes it is because you have put another SIM card in it, and they own the phone and need you to use them as carrier to get the price of the phone back, or you are in default of payment, or on a Pay as You Go plan, it is over expired. I can also happen if you have entered the unlock code wrongly three times. This often happens when a phone is stolen or lost and has been found by or sold to someone else who then try and use the phone. Wikipedia A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in 3GPP mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUC is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC written down in a safe place separate from the device.
The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned and provided by the service provider.
Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked
From Bell
The PIN unblocking key (PUK; sometimes called personal unlocking key) is a master security code for unblocking and resetting the personal identification number (PIN) for your SIM card. For added security, the PUK is unique to your SIM card. If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You must enter your PUK into your phone to unblock the SIM card. If your SIM card becomes blocked, Contact us to get your PUK.
You may be able to do it from the website or your cellular provider. This is from Orange - T-Mobile in the UK.
Your phone can become blocked in a number of ways - one of them is if you enter your SIM card PIN number incorrectly three times in a row. To unblock your SIM card, you will need to use something called a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key).
Remember that unblocking is different to unlocking. Read more information on unlocking your device.

How to get a PUK code

The quickest way to get a PUK code is online using My Account. We'll show you this information whenever you need it.
  1. Register or log in to My Account.
  2. Select Help & Support from the main menu options on your account homepage.
  3. Select Get your PUK code.
  4. Then select Get PUK1 code.
  5. Once you have your PUK code, enter this into your phone to unblock your SIM.
Please enter your PUK code carefully - if you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times, you will permanently block your SIM card and we'll need to send you a new one. 1826865-en.jpg?2.0

Does my tablet need a SIM chip and a memory chip?


If your tablet is not cellular capable (is a WiFi only) device - no SIM should be needed. Most tablets have some or only internal memory. If yours has a slot for a memory card (typically an SD, SDHC or SDXC type) you can increase the amount of applications and data it can hold easily. Google your tablet model to learn the types and capacity of the memory cards it supports.

Puk code


PUK Code
PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a unique eight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PIN number to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are then given 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack. If you do not have this then - Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give them your account details and they have confirmed your identity. For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, please click on this link and follow my instructions.
