If you don't plan on using the data plan, CANCEL IT NOW!
1) Call AT&T Customer Support @ 800-331-0500
2) The automated system will ask you for your Galaxy Tab's phone number, which appears on the confirmation email and the box.
3) Hit '0' then provide your name and last 4 of your social to the CSR.
4) Tell them you'd like to cancel you DataConnect plan. The CSR you are currently talking to may be able to cancel the service there. If they act dumb.. See Step 5
5) Ask to be transferred to cancellations. If the cancellations CSR acts dumb, don't waste your time. Hang up and repeat from Step 1 to get a useful CSR. (I was able to cancel in ~5 min, Mike_Hawk).

You should be able to prorate the plan for the month. Kindly ask them to waive the data charges incurred while the Tab was in transit and not in your possession, they should be able to credit your account or make note of it on your account. There is no activation fee. There is no early termination fee (ETF), so you can cancel/re-subscribe anytime for no fee. This is great news if you plan to be on Wifi the majority of the time but still need 3G if for say you're going on a business trip or vacation.

Please post and fill in any info about the tab here (custom roms, rooting, etc)

Rooting:
I used the following to root my AT&T SGT and to get the ability to install non-market apps (including the Amazon app store).
http://forum.xda-developers.com/s...p?t=803682
Instructions are not as clear as they could be, so do some reading first if you are unsure about the Android drivers that need to be on your PC and how to put the SGT in USB debug mode (Settings/Applications/Development/USB debugging).

2. install with any file manager program
3. OCLF start
4. "Install EXT2 tools"
5. then press OneClickLagFix V2.2 +

As you can then test to see run the benchmark by Quadrant what caused it and the whole system should be a bit "smoother" are.
Who so why should always be unhappy just goes in the program to undo OneClickLagFix V2.2 + and uninstalled the program!


Installing 3rd Party software - with AT&T Rom
Just wanted to give people heads up, since I rooted without problems but when putting Custom Rom -Overcome, had problems with patching.

AT&T has blocked the area where non Adnroid Market software (*.apk files), can be installed. Usaully you can change this thru, settings -> application -> Allow non market software. There is no option in AT&T rom. So you can install android software (apk files) from your PC using the following Link:
Side Load Wonder Machine [androidcentral.com]

You can patch the unit also, and then put custom ROM which will have the option present to install apk file.

Just wanted to share, since it took me some time to resolve. !!


I called to cancel the data plan, and nicely asked for the unlock code, after provide my IEME, the guy at ATT gave me the unlock code, so now i can use my tmobile SIM

it's not a phone (per say), it's a 7" tablet (you can hack it to enable voice calling, but only via speakerphone or bluetooth headset)
