    I'm not sure if this is correct or not but I think if you try to use a SIM that's been set up for a phone it won't work in a tablet. Your carrier should be able to set up a tablet SIM for you.

    Thanks Jonesy,
    I come from Vietnam, and in Vietnam, some people already use playbook 4G and can connect internet, This SIM card can use for Ipad mini, Google nexus 7,... (they buy code to unlock). I thinks SIM card no problem.
    Did you think the problem is OS? (need to upgrade to 2.1 version?). I can not find Playbook OS 2.1 Official

    Thanks for reply soon!

    To manually check for an OS update, tap the Settings icon and then Software Updates. You'll need an WiFi connection. Hopefully that will work.

    HI Jonesy,
    My current OS version is 2.0.1.668, i try to update by wifi, but this version is latest software.
    Can I upgrade to version 2.1 ?
    If can, how to?
    Thanks!

    You obviously CAN connect to the internet by wifi, otherwise you wouldn't be getting that "You currently have the latest software installed" message. You can use an auto loader to update to 2.1, but you'll likely lose any 4G capability in the process. If others are running 4G Playbooks in your country, I'd find out what cell providers they're using and then contact one of these providers to see if they can help you. Updates to the 4G Playbooks are controlled by the cell providers, not by Blackberry.

    There are tools out there, but using them to update will likely turn your 4G Playbook into a wifi only model, and very possibly permanently so. Are you really sure that you want to go there?

    I'm a little worried
    Can you tell me about success rate?

    Can you tell me about success rate?
    As far as I know, the success rate is 0% (insofar as keeping your 4G capability). There may be OS 2.1 4G auto loaders out there, but you'll have to do some research to find out if this is so.

    Go here, and do as instructed to update to 2.1.0.1753, but be prepared to lose all 4G functionality, perhaps permanently. I'd suggest reading the entire thread before proceeding. http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...aybook-846376/
