Thanks for your post and for reaching out to the community forums. Sorry to hear that you are having issues using the SIM and service. Are you able to clarify the following:
You stated that you have two SIM cards from us? Only one of these will work if these SIM cards are for the same number.
The the 4G service will work, whether the SIM is registered or not, so long as the SIM is active and you have a compatible device. However if you would like to register online, it can be done here https://mobile.virginmedia.com/ecare/registration
Is the tablet showing connected to the Virgin network in the network settings?
The APN settings may not automatically download for the tablet, however you can try to reset the network or APN settings within the tablet's network settings menu. If not then you may need to enter the settings manually, depending on the make/model of the device.
