    This is for a relative in the nursing home who is mute and the tablet will be used mainly for communicating. It will remain in her room while I'm away and I don't want to set up my account on the tablet for security reasons. If there is a better option for our purpose other than a tablet, then please share what you know as well.

    Welcome to AC.☺

    Do you mean communication
    by texts? Any simple mobile phone will do that, as long as there is an adequate mobile or wifi signal. But a tablet would also do it, yes. And no, you don't need a Google account.

    Phones are too small for her to read the small text, therefore a 10" tablet is desired. And no, she won't be sending out texts or connected to the internet unless I am with her when she does it. This is a cheap tablet...a Polaroid P10 which is more than she needs to start out on. She only has use of 1 hand so it can't be too complicated to use while we are away. How do I get passed the Google account set up while setting up the tablet. It immediately goes to that phase of set up w/o option to go passed it w/o Google set up. There has to be a way to get around that.

    I don't understand that. If I recall right there is normally the option of not creating an account, or of skipping and doing it later. As a last resort you could go ahead and create the account and then delete it from the device subsequently.

    Tried that, but all the apps and settings disappeared when the account was closed. It even warned me that it would. Let me try it one more time. If I can't get it to work right this time, I'm just going to go with the Alphasmart unit.
