    On the a500 it's just an empty slot and is supposed to have tape over it. If you put a sim card in it will just drop inside of your tab.

    Are you sure you're looking at the correct slot? The SD card slot is next to it.

    My understanding is that if you try and put a SIMM in there it will just fall through and rattle around.
