Hi, @SEharRaza,

 

You say you've inserted the SIM card, but did you activate it on AT&T's network? If not, follow the steps to activate the SIM and set up an account. let us know if this helps.

Hi @SEharRaza

 

Thank you for reaching out to us today. We'll be happy to assist.

 

You won't be able to make phone calls with a tablet but depending on which specific tablet you have, you may be able to send messages. What kind of tablet do you have? Is the software up to date?

@SEharRaza The SIM for the the LG V410 is for data not for calls and texting. You can install one of the following apps. Links below are discussions on using tablets for messaging. If you have a phone you can look at Numbersync with ATT.

1.  Google Voice

2. Google Hangouts

3. Facebook Messenger
