Since you are here, you probably noticed that on the Nexus 7 3G/LTE edition, you can't send/receive SMS messages, hindering the ability for many to subscribe/change options on various prepay providers.
You can now finally send and receive SMS messages from your Nexus 7 tablet! (as long as it has a SIM and a carrier plan with included texts, of course)
No root access required, just stock Android.
