    unless your particular tablet has a GSM slot you will need a modem. Also, odds of it being automatic are slim, but if you post the detais of your specific tablet and modem we should be able to help.

    Hi, you might also try a hotspot device (a phone or stand alone like mifi) and then just connect to that device via wifi.

    We have to have details about your equipment. Models, service providers, every thing.
