    First answer these questions:

    Does your tablet have 3G?

    Or,

    Does it come with WiFi?

    If your tablet comes with WiFi you will need a wireless router at home to access the Internet. Alternatively, you could go to a McDonalds Fast Food store who has FREE WIRELESS ACCESS for all their patrons. Go to your SETTINGS on your tablet and activate the WiFi. Your tablet will do the rest. Open WEB BROWSER and browse Google. The McDonalds FREE wireless screen will pop up, tick the "I accept" tick box and then "CLICK" where they tell you. Another screnn will pop up informing you that you have 50MB of free access to WEB. Browse to Google again and click GMAIL and you should be in.

    Regards,

    Douvie.
