just got a nexus 7 tablet..2012 model. i installed a giffgaff sim previously used in my old huawei phone but it is not showing at all on the nexus 7?..even in settings there is no option for "mobile settings"?

 

i don't even get a "no sim" when i turn off my wifi..is my nexus faulty or are there some settings i needs to change to the nexus or for my giffgaff sim (£12.50 goody bag).

 

i'm absolutely stuck and have no idea what to do, if anyone out there can help me, i'd be extremely grateful?

Go to ‘Settings’. Then go to ‘Wireless & networks’. More Continue go to ‘Mobile Networks’. Then ‘Access Point Names’ Click the Menu button’ Then select ‘New APN’ Connection Name: giffgaff APN : giffgaff.com Username: giffgaff Password: password

 

Although you cannot use a £12.50 goodybag in your nexus7, you will need a gigabag.

Is the handset unlocked to gg? Check against anotjer 02 phone

hi, thanks for your reply..

no it is a wifi + 3g nexus 7 tablet which open to all networks.

 

the sims i have tried are a 3 ipad micro sim and my giffgaff sim..neeither are being recognised at all..more worrying is there is no "mobile settings" option in settings..

if you can please try another sim card and see if that one will invisible for your tablet.

it looks like it is something wrong with your tablet not with gg sim card
