Will it work with verizon?

No, it’s on AT&T’s frequencies.

Refurbished and LG.

What could possibly go wrong here?

Actually, I think there’s a slim possibility it might: Verizon uses bands 13 and 4 for LTE, and this supports 4.

Now, whether or not Verizon will let a device that only sees that one LTE band on their network…

As I understand it, band 4 is being used to bolster the main 700 MHz band (which this device does NOT support for VZW) so coverage wouldn’t be available everywhere.

The best bet is definitely sticking to GSM carriers.

Maybe a dumb question: could I buy this and not use it on any cellular network? Just as a WiFi-only device?

yep, WIFI would work just fine. You don’t have to use the 4g.

Does anyone know how long it takes to boot up? I’m thinking of mounting it in my car.

I don’t really get having cellular on a tablet (assuming you have a smart phone). A smartphone can become a hotspot, then any wifi device can connect to it. In many android phones (some require root, some do not) you can activate a hotspot and share your data from your phone, without even paying for a hotspot plan.

I bought one last time; works great as stand alone. I could not use it with my TMobile SIM card which I am using with an unlocked Nexus 7. I got AT&T to send the unlock code but that did not work - the unit was actually unlocked already - but no luck on getting TMobile SIM card to work.I fear the AT&T bands are not the same as TMobile. But I only bought it as a backup to my Nexus 7 so as wifi device only its still a great deal!

For those that are a fan of the 8" format, the 8" version was recently $5 more (delivered), no tax from an eBay vendor. Talking quantities were in the 1000’s, not some one off deal.

If you are using free 200mb data (even if not I believe, so maybe any data only plan) and it is not on tmo list of “allowed” devices then it will not be - allowed - to work. I ran into this w/the similar 8", tmo wouldn’t activate, got activated w/an allowed device, used SIM in G pad, got cut off after about a week.

I recently bought 3 of these for my kids, same price and refurbished through an ebay seller. Boot up time is currently pretty quick I would say…it does a LG logo for a few seconds and then an AT&T logo for a few seconds, then it’s ready to go.

Only have had them for a couple weeks, but I have been very happy with them. Movies look really good, games run smooth, wifi has been great, and the kids (6,4, and 4) have no problems using them. Only negative is the speakers aren’t the best, but the kids will be using headphones with them anyways.

Really? Do you have a link? The lowest I’ve seen the 8" is around $149-179.

Tablets are definitely going to perform well, but they are not very durable. While in a case (granted a very cheap one from amazon), it took a fall from about 3 feet to ,the hardwood store and the digitizer (oddly not the screen) cracked.

I would invest in a good quality case.

Still new to GSM Tablets, can you use this as a phone? For example, pop in AT&T Sim card so I can use it as replacement phone?

Unfortunately, the tablet version of Android OS does not support making phone calls.

You could use an app to make calls, though I don’t know how reliable it would be.
Google voice calls on the hangout app might work well, but I’d count on wifi, not mobile data or it’s not worth the cost.
