    Just recently bought new cell phone through AT&T, they had special on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 android tablet. My question is: Is there anyway to use the tablet without going through AT&T and using my data. The tablet did come with cell #.

    If you have WiFi service, you can connect the tablet via that instead of using the phone connection.

    Welcome to the forum
    Data can typically be disabled in settings to ensure that you don't use it. However, as @Spider pointed out, so long as you know you are on WiFi that comes first and no data will be used.
