The easiest way, if you have a Smart Phone, is to go into Settings>Wireless and Network settings and scroll down to see if you have"Tethering and Portable Hotspot" if you do then click on Portable WiFi Hotspot to create your own personal WiFi Hotspot. Don't forget to password protect it to prevent all and sundry from using it!

My granddaughter has a Samsung Galaxy Tab2 7". It is WiFi only so you have to be in the zone of a hone or public wifi hotspot to use the internet. She uses it primarily with a separate keyboard to do work at college then plug in at home to a PC, as well as music etc.

The info above refers to your Smart Phone's "Settings" not the Tablet's,

Another point to remember is that all Data charges are going to be to your phone account, it is NOT FREE unlike logging in to a public WiFi Hotspot.

Hi everyone

Thank you all so much for your quick reply I received from you quickly.

I have smartphone Samsung note N7000, with Vodafone network, with 500MB usage per month.

And I have sky account with unlimited broadband.

Sky have app called: Sky cloud wifi

I can use this app with free internet depends of the area and how strong the signal is.

I just found out about this app today.

I do not know about this app, I will use it and let you know.

What do you think about this app, if you have any idea.

Again thank you so much for your help.

I hope to hear from you very soon

My kindest regards Habs

Your Samsung Note 7000 has built in WiFi Hotspot, you only have to enable it to use your tablet when not in range of a public Hotspot. The Sky Cloud app seems to rely on being within range of a Hotspot to work, I suppose you could download the Sky Cloud app to your tablet and use your personal Hotspot when not in range.
