p7300 sim card - 3g??

Can anyone help me. I have a GT p1000 which, of course, is a phone and i can therefore activate a data package with vodafone using the phone itself.
My neighbour has a p7300 with a sim card slot and i am trying to help him to activate the 3g function, but i cannot work out what the sim card slot is for because there is no phone in the p7300. i can charge up the sim on my p1000, but will it then work in the p7300? And how?
I am at a loss to know how to get the 3g working on his tab. The manual is rather unhelpful, so I depend on someone out there who can tell me what is going on!
Thanks for looking.

According to the manual, the 7300 is a phone and does have a sim card slot.Page 15 item 5.

Your Vodafone Sim may not work in his model if it is a locked device. Where was it purchased and was it locked to one telephone service provider

Thanks for your reply MB.

The P7300 is unlocked and was purchased through Panamoz.

There is no phone icon, and no mention of a phone in the manual either - did I miss something?

If I didn't, and there is no phone, what is the sim card for? Only messaging? And how does he recharge his vodafone web pack?

Confused of Darwen.

This is curious. Pg 71 of the manual talks about the contacts app and sure enough, it doesn't mention being able to phone them, only to txt and email.
My assumption theerfore is that the sim card is for storing the contacts on to be able to txt them or email them.

Did your friend think it was a phone when he brought the P7300, surely he would have asked the question.
If it's VF PAYG there are lots of non mobile phone ways to top up, including via the pc and at a lot of shops petrol stations etc.

The P7300 has got the SIM Card slot, but only data.
So calling is not an option.

I live in the Netherlands and have my older postpaid working in my P1000 to make it work (calling is a bit weird) and my Vodafone data only is working in me P7300.

So if you've got a normal prepaid or postpaid SIM Card, you'll only be able to use Internet and sending text.

You can use skype or whatsapp but that's :)
