    It could be your device's defecet. Which version of Android are you using? And what are your APN settings? Which network mode are you on?

    Well, if you upgraded your tab to GB, you can follow this instruction to root your tablet:

    sorry, no clickable link! just copy and paste it on your browser.

    swap out your hardware but using a rogers of unlocked smart phone and setup and test your data it see if the problem is with your hardware or the SIM account.

    for android google up "petro canada mobility APN" and add the settings for an android in setting-->Wireless-->Mobile-Networks-->APN
    for iOS iphone connect to a wifi and browser with your browser to the unlockit dot co dot nz site and tap Create APN which will walk you through some settings to create an APN Carrier Settings for petroc, then tap the install button.

    Note that this is not UNLIMTED DATA plan, it is an unlimited SURFING plan. As in your browser will only work (port 80). This is why youtube doesn't work or most apps. So you can only SURF using Petro Canada Unlimited Surfing Plan (as I said, it is NOT unlimited data).


    There is a work around however if you know computers well enough:

    1) You must root your tablet, I don't know how to root your tablet...just google it, warning it may FRY your tablet.

    2) Setup the APN normally under Settings / Wireless-- / Mobile-Networks-->APN

    Settings:
    Access Point Name (aPN): goam.com
    User Name: wapuser1
    Password: wap
    Login Type: Automatic
    Primary Proxy Server Setting 10.128.1.69
    Primary Proxy Server Port: 80

    You then need to install this app and route everything through port 80 of the above APN (goam.com) port is 80.

    Autoproxy for android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...oxy_lite&hl=en

    >>>This is why youtube doesn't work or most apps.

    youtube works on the iphone but you are right most or pretty near all apps don't work.

    >>>You must root your tablet, I don't know how to root your tablet...just google it, warning it may FRY your tablet.

    rooting you android phone or tablet is a pretty simple process for most devices, it is pretty hard to perm-brick your android device when rooting it, how ever if you root your device your warranty, if you have one, will be void.
