I was just given a Verizon Tablet and need to convert to AT&T

I just got a Verizon (Android System) Tablet given to me, but I need to figure out how to convert it to an  AT&T Tablet (AT&T is who my contract for my Note 20 Ultra Phone is through). Could anyone tell me how to accomplish This? Thank you in advance, and have a Blessed Day!

What do you mean by convert it? If it is compatible with ATT’s network, you need a tablet plan and an ATT SIM card. Depending on what plan you have, you can probably add a tablet to that plan.

I have a Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G I switched after 10 plus years with Verizon to AT&T and all I did was stick my AT&T SIM card into the Verizon phone and change the setting from GSM to CDMA or maybe the opposite and it works and I've been using it this way for a while now but it's still when I turn on the phone it says Verizon and it's still a Verizon lock Galaxy Note 20 how do I remove the Verizon software? also I want to be able to use AT&T video call and there's no icon to allow this because it's still with Verizon so I can't make video calls!?


thank you

It's always going to say Verizon.  Just because you're inserted an AT&T SIM card does not mean the phone will have all of its previous Verizon software removed.

Things like video call on Wi-Fi calling will probably never work. If you wanted full service you're going to have to sell that phone and purchase an AT&T phone.
