    T100TA Use with SIM Card?

    Probably been asked a hundred times before but I can't find in a search.

    I have a Asus T100TA and need to know if it can be used with a SIM card from AT&T so I can browse the net?

    1. If a SIM card can be used, where does it go?

    2. All the cards I see on AT&T website say for Apple or Galaxy.

    3. If a SIM card can't be used, how do I use my AT&T phone with the T100 to use the phones data allowance?

    No, the T100 doesn't have a cellular modem... You can get a external modem that'll work over the USB... AT&T would be able to sell or lease you one if you really need to use it on the go, or more easily just setup a tether with your phone and setup a data plan with AT&T for it...

    Should? As in my opinion is that it should? Or should, like you think it will.

    The former is valid, it's an opinion after all. The later, no. I doubt it will very, very much. The T100 is a budget tablet when all is said and done. Its not a cut rate tablet, but it is a budget tablet and cellular modems are almost never in budget tablets. The BOM cost the manufacturer tends to be pretty steep. Between design compromises to fit a SIM slot, power budget and cost of the modem itself (which ranges from about $3-12 depending on the type and capabilities, which is significantly more than the Wifi radio and antenna typically costs), it just isn't in the cards.

    Via USB, or Bluetooth Dun/Pan connection depending on type of phone you have.

    You also have to see if your AT&T phone plan includes "Tethering" as part of your data allowance.

    Although, you're using the same data allowance, being able to use the phone as a modem, is referred to as "tethering" and is often a different part of your data plan depending on the phone/provider. However, AT&T has recently announced that their new plans will include tethering.

    There's also ways to do this through the Bluetooth SPP profile and get around the whole tethering B.S. without having a tethering plan. Requires downloading and installing special hacker released software.

    It doesn't have to be AT&T by the way. I still have a Verizon unlimited data plan on my Motorola Droid Maxx phone and use it to WIFI tether my laptop and Nexus 7 when I'm not at home and need an internet connection. I pay $30 for the unlimited data plus $30 for the hotspot feature.

    Thanks for sharing, that last part is the part most people tend to not understand. That's the tethering charge which then allows you to use your phone as a modem for your other devices....such as the T100.

    Your post also reminded me, "Wifi" is another connection that can be made to use your phone as a modem.
