    In the US the Xoom doesn't have the capability to read Sim Cards or MicroSD cards yet.. I'm not sure if thats your problem but you may want to check into that. That whole part of the Xoom is just waiting for the next software update before it becomes officially active. The MicroSD can be made to work through a kernel update.

    I didn't think mine was recognised but I contacted 3 who told me it had been activated but you need to switch the xoom off and then on again after insertion and then it may take up to 2 hrs to activate properly. Widgetzoid do a great mobile data toggle app for you to switch between wifi and 3G once you are up and running.

    In the uk that's not the case we can use sim cards for 3G mobile broadband data.
