OK I am computer literate but this thing is a whole new ball game for me. The owners manual does not contain the information I need. I would appreciate assistance. Now I have researched both Wifi and G3. This thing is G3 ready, but am I correct in thinking that you have to buy a module to plug into the USB port in order to use G3? I have such a module that I can purchase that uses Sprint. It is called "ready broadband". Does anyone know anything good or bad about this module? Do you have to do the same for Wifi or can you just go to a Wifi public hotspot like Mc Donalds and use it? I have no interest in setting up Wifi at home BTW because that is what I have a desktop for. Do you have to buy some type of service (or gadget or both) to access Wifi or is it truly free? Also I tried to locate host mode on it so that I could access my desktop directly and came up empty. It seems the instruction book is flawed. I have not tried to attach it to an external hard drive yet to see if it reads those. Can someone please just give me some basic, simple instructions in plain English that I can understand? Thanks.
