Is there an idiot’s guide somewhere to using a UK bought Nexus7 in France? Last year Orange tried and failed to get a French SIM to work.
I think 0044 http://www.0044.co.uk/ have the SIMS but what is all this about unlocking the table in order to get the SIM to work in France? I don’t use any security on my Nexus – does that mean it is unlocked?
I assume you meant unlocking the tablet and not unlocking the table?!
Phones and mobile enabled tablets can be locked by the network that supplied them so that they only work with their SIMs and not ones from other companies. This is because they usually subsidise the price of the device and it seems fair that they should keep you on the network!
If you bought your tablet through the Play store then it should be unlocked already and any SIM will work. If you bought it through Orange then it may be locked to their network, best check with your supplier to be sure.
I believe that once you are in France it should be a case of just popping in the SIM and away you go. I would be interested to know if the Google Play store geo-locates you to France and offers prices in Euros?!
I’ve been trying to get access to the French play store myself, im off there next month actually and will try to set up a new account whilst connected to a French network.
