    Default Do you need a data plan to use a tablet at home?

    Probably a stupid question but if I only use this on my home wi-fi, I don't need to get a a data plan or pay anything extra to my ISP, do I? I'm new to tablets and wanted to make sure before I go ahead and buy it.

    I have a number of tablets that are wife only. If you pay for it outright then you should have no problem using as a wife only device.

    Welcome to Android Central! Correct, you do not have to pay anything extra to your ISP.

    Yes, you can use it at home on your wifi, or at any public free wifi spots (or even hotel wifi when traveling).

    You can use it away from home with no connection as well if you have games, music, or other apps loaded that don't require a constant connection, or for using the camera functions.

    You will likely want to create a Google account (free) if you don't have one. The tablet will guide you through when you first use it. That makes it easy for adding new apps, backing up, etc.
