Turn on airplane mode. Then turn on Wi-Fi. If you shut your Tab off while it's in airplane mode, it will start up again in that same mode, and the Sprint activation prompt will not happen. You will have to turn Wi-Fi on each time you start up from a cold-boot however.

It can be done but the SPH-P100 tab has to be rooted. Also if it is running update EA24 it has to be done manually. please note that this is dangerous for the tab and it will void your warranty. so unless you absolutely can not put up with the activation notification i would not try this. Otherwise google is your best friend.

Hi there!

Thank you for your inquiry.

With regard to your concern, the Sprint activation notification on the status bar is preloaded on the phone and there are no configurable options to remove it on the phone.

There's no option for you to use only the Wi-Fi functionality of the device even you're going beyond the Wi-Fi hotspot. However, if you really want to use only the Wi-Fi capability of the device, you need to disable the data plan that you have with your current service provider.

Question

Can I lock the screen while watching a movie?

Hoping there is a capability that would allow me to lock the touch screen so that I can play a movie, give it to my baby and not have them turning off the video or switching screens. Is there a way to lock the screen and still watch and listen to the TV/Movie?

Thank you for your inquiry.
Hi, as I can see you the Samsung TAB, wow! You have a very nice device there. It is a great device. I love it. And about your concern if you can watch video or movie while the touch screen is lock, to tell you honestly it is impossible to do. You cannot watch video once the touch screen is locked. You really need to keep the touch screen unlock to be able to watch video.
For further details regarding this device, we advise you to visit our website www.samsung.com to check for other specifications that you may enjoy with this phone or you can always send us your questions and we will be happy to check our resources and answer it.

The serial number of the SPH-P100Galaxy Tab is located at the back of the device on the white sticker. You can see MEID (Hex or Dec) number. Also, you can obtain it on the device itself by following the steps below.

STEPS:

• From Home Screen, Press Menu
• Go to Settings
• Select About Device
• Select Status
• Look for MEID (Hex or Dec)

However, if you’re trying to register your product online and it wasn’t working, then you may try it some other time due to the fact that Samsung website is currently updating.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

From my understanding, the ability to make & receive calls over the carriers connection in the US has been blocked. I know this is the case for Sprint. There are some ways to get around this using Google voice and Skype, or if you are willing to, there are several ROMS out there that work if you root the tablet

3. You may need to download a 3rd party application for you to use the tab as a phone, to make and receive phone calls. However, we do not support the use of 3rd party applications and services with any of our devices. For this reason, we do not have information compiled on possible resources.

If you are having issues with the use of a specific 3rd party application or service, we recommend contacting the developer of that application or service for compatibility and support assistance.

Regarding the ability to sync with Outlook, Samsung does not provide an application for this option. However, you may sync your phone over the air with the us of Gmail account.

You just need to import/export your outlook information to your Gmail account. Once you did that, from there your Gmail account will automatically sync to your handset wirelessly.

If your would like to customize the "This Belongs To" message, please follow the steps below:

1. Launch the anti-virus
2. From the "Touch screen to protect device screen" tap menu, tap settings, tap remote management, Check Enable lost message, tap lost message, tap Text Before and 3. Enter the information and then tap ok.

Note: You need to download an anti-virus first and for the message "This Belongs To" to appear, they need to set up a pattern lock.
