    You can't. Just because it has the slot does not mean it has the radio.

    Not with anything you can buy. You could probably salvage the radio from another one and, with some soldering skills, maybe make it work. But for all practical purposes, no.

    Another solution is tethering it to your phone if you got the hotspot plan

    Other than soldering a radio into it don't think there's anyway it can become 3g
