    First off, you will need some info from the carrier you are going with in india for the cdma tab.
    1. can they activate the tablet at all, you can give them the esn and they will be able to check that.
    if they can, you need to know if what cdma band they use, a or b for roaming.
    Next, you will need to know their SID/nid/mcc (mobile carrier code)

    From here, I will walk you through programming the tablet for ota activation with that carrier.
    If its the verizon galaxy tab, to get to the programming menu go to the notepad and type **772 to get to the manual programming.

    the spc code will always be 000000

    from here touch down 3 times
    clear out the directory number with 10 0's
    then hit down
    then clear out the msin with 10 0's
    from here touch down
    here you will change the system id to what is necessary for that carrier.
    then you will hit left or right and then enter
    then hit down 4 times and you should see mcc, put the mcc number here
    then hit down 4 times, and the home sid should match the one you input, then you will change the NID for that carrier as well
    then you will hit down 64 times, and make sure cdma homesys reg is yes
    then hit down 6 times to where it says slot cycle index, change this to 1 by hitting touch here and clear it and hit 1
    then exit service

    when the device resets, you go to settings, wireless and network and then roaming capability update. Then it should activate with the Indian PRL.

    This should work this way, the only catch is if it requires the editing of the MNC (Mobile Network code) Which may or may not be necessary, but if it is, you will need to get a copy of a program like CDMA Workshop to edit that since there is no internal way of editing this.

    To get the tab into diag mode for such applications, see here
    Samsung Galaxy tad on Dial up networking

    and to change network settings for CDMA workshop, click here

    this has some walkthroughs.
