Folks have questioned the combination of 16GB and wifi-only and have heard back from the seller that that is correct - it's an unusual model number, apparently. (And if not there's always the "Item not as specified" guarantee :/ )

Also found that if you buy 3, there is a $10 discount - makes them $62 rather than $65 each, if you need that many


Coupon code now dead!





About the pad
Got it on 6/13(Saturday). It is 16GB version, some with an US Cellular sim card inside next to MicroSD slot. Here is the parameters if anyone is interested. http://www.lg.com/us/tablets/lg-U...ad-7.0-lte
It's like new condition with a 3rd party charger and an usb cable. Pretty happy with it after messing around for 3 hours.

Not sure if it could be unlocked and used to other carriers. I will try it later.



Just got it rooted and flash TWRP without issue.(use it at your own risk, especially for those new to android. I didn't find an one-click-root software.)

Lollipop
It appears that there is no US Cellular update to Lollipop at this time. If you don't mind risking the loss of mobile data functionality, you might try flashing the CM 12.1 for V410 variant. (reference) [teamuscellular.com]

Root
http://www.droidviews.com/easily-...-lollipop/

Recovery
Flash the TWRP 2.8.5.0 V410 in the following link with Flashify(you can find Flashify in google play store).
http://forum.xda-developers.com/g...0-t3049568

Sim card unlock
Bring it to the US Cellular store to unlock. Find the store nearby with the following link.
http://www.uscellular.com/storefinder/index.html
US Cellular: 888-944-9400
Unlock Policy: http://www.uscellular.com/site/le...cking.html
For me, the drive to the nearest store is 2 hours. I called and was told that one of my 2 tablets was associated with a canceled account that has an outstanding balance and therefore, cannot be unlocked. It must be connected to the diagnostic machine in-store for unlock, not a code apparently.
The listing never claimed to have LTE capability so I can't really complain.

Not bad! If I had a spare $130 laying around I'd pick up a couple of these for my daughters to replace their aging Kindle Fires.

The only hiccup is that the provider is 97.6 rated on satisfaction but otherwise.

I thought the WIFI only version was limited to 8GB but this is listed at 16GB. Am I missing something?

This supposedly has an IR BLASTER... would make a nice universal remote.

The listing is incorrect. It's only 8GB.

Holding out for the ATT version but if you are OK with 8GB, I can say the screen is great on this thing. Checked it out at the ATT store. It has so-called Zero Gap build, so there is little or no gap between the glass and the display unlike others in this price range.

They are going to have a LOT of unhappy customers if this is the case.

I'm also interested that they say it will update to Lollipop. I have the LG G Pad 8.3 (non GPE) and I don't have a Lollipop update.

This has wireless hotspot. This isn't the phone one is it? It also says no sim card included on side. Indicating it might be the gsm version.

I want to buy this but I have no clue if I'm buying what is actually listed. Yikes.
