    Ok, I am going to explain this as best I can.

    Last week I paid off my entire verizon bill. Which means the Verizon tablet we were using on our plan we get to keep.

    It is a Samsung model# QMV7B

    Called AT&T and they said that I can use a AT&T sim card on our contract no biggie.

    Problem 1: verizon refuses to release the lock code even though according to the certified mail I sent along with cashiers check has been delivered.

    They say they "have to wait till it clears their system?" It has been over a week.

    Second Problem: called samsung them self and they said they had no problem issuing a unlock code as long as I was willing to do a 3 way call with Verizon to verify payment.

    Of course verizon said they have it but it hasn't cleared, so samsung hands were tied.

    Now, if the following question is NOT allowed, please forgive my ignorance.

    I have never dealt with this issue before.

    Is there any way I can over ride the sim lock?

    Thanks guys, much love.

    P.s. I am more hormonal than usual, I have had 4 injections in past week, plus a sissy husband who is in the bed sick.

    Am I correct in assuming this is a tablet?

    My suggestion may not be what you want to hear but it is valid.

    1) Get your money back and if they will not refund it then fight it with your bank

    2) Tablets that are exclusive to a carrier can be meaningless to unlock because if you are able to unlock it may not work on another carrier's LTE (in the case of AT&T may only work on their HSPA+ network).

    3) You can just turn on your built in wireless hotspot from your phone and you will get the same speeds.

    I'll do some research on the device.

    ^^ what pc747 said^^ There's no point in getting an unlock code since you're now on ATT. Just use the tablet on WiFi.

    I appreciate that greatly ty for the quick response. I asked my bank if there was any way they could cancel the check and she said she wasn't sure.

    How True, I inherited a Kindle Fire and LG 8' Tablet along with a couple of phones when my mom passed away recently.

    I rooted the kindle with resurrection rom and it is a multi-media tablet for my man cave. The blue tooth and WAN dont work on the kindle but it does the job. It is my clock radio , weather radar , TV (TWC App) and souncloud. I use this hooked up to my JVC Reciever so I can listen / watch media but not take away resources from my computer while I am gaming.

    I had bought my mom an identical dock a couple of years ago so I have another one in my bedroom with the LG on the dock that I have connected to some Sengled Pulse Speaker Bulbs in my bathroom that contols the lights and I can listen to "soothing" music :cool: in the shower.

    So there is still plenty of use for that old tablet.

    It is to someone who doesn't have access to wifi. Like her.
