How can I connect my Nexus 7 tablet to LTE?

Episode 1021

Frank from Vancouver, WA

Frank's wife has a Google Nexus 7 and wants to sign up for LTE. Leo says that Verizon is required by law to have an open network and allow sign ups. Verizon claims they're "testing" it before they sign up. Leo says that's nonsense and they're deliberately dragging their feet. Leo says it's a great option and it's unlocked so she can use it anywhere. It comes with an AT&T SIM as well. So go with AT&T if the coverage is good.

Frank also wants to transfer his contacts into the cloud. Leo says exporting data to a CSV file and then uploading that to Google will work.

He shouldn't have to wait for an update and it could be a hardware problem. No software patch can fix that.

Leo says the first thing to do is create or log into a GMail account. That single sign in will do everything on Google for him.
