What if I have a Wi-Fi only version but still need to connect to the Internet away from a Wi-Fi connection?


Mi-Fi devices, or aircards, can be purchased from AT&T to create hotspots for iPads that do not have the built-in 3G/4G/LTE capability. These devices will require separate data plans and incur monthly charges just as any other wireless cellular device.

You can also, activate your smartphone (iOS or Android) with a mobile hot-spot (Tethering) feature to connect your Wi-Fi only tablet to the internet. This service is available thorough AT&T for an additional monthly cost.
