SIM Card Doesn't work

I have a Dell Venue Pro 11 – 5130. I'm trying to get network connection through a service provider whose SIM card I purchased. I inserted the SIM card in the SIM slot after removing the battery. The tablet does not recognize the SIM card. I have tried 3 different SIMs with no luck.When I go to 

Settings → Change PC settings → Network

no network is listed. Do you know why the SIM cards are not recognized? Does the tablet need to be unlocked?

RE: SIM Card Doesn't work


Did you order the system with the sim card? If not, the hardware for the sim card is not inside the system and the slot is just a blank slot.



What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?
