    hello everybody!

    im planing to buy this awesome gorgeous device but i have one thing on my mind, im from croatia, and im wondering can i somehow connect to internet via some program or something despite i dont have wireless hot spot somewhere, like, if i had sim card inside i could do that with the provider(for instant t-mobile) but there isnt sim card in the device, so what could i purchase so i have internet whenever i want it to, without some wireless hot spot unlocked somewhere... thanks!

    p.s. could i buy microusb adapter that accepts sim card and do it that way?

    Welcome to the forum

    It's really difficult to find a USB to 3G adapter that will work on Android. I do have some info on that in a link below on getting connected with no WiFi but a good solution for home if you have Internet would be a mini WiFi to Ethernet router. There are several out there that work great in that situation.

    There are a few but again, you would need the cooperation of a provider. I have a link below that has some suggestions for communicating without WiFi you might want to check.

    I use a pocket wifi device that uses 3G with a service provider. I can connect 5 devices securely. Probably best way to go for you. Not sure what is available in Croatia, though. I am in Australa.

    and what would i had to ask my provider for me to know that it supportable?

    I just use my cell phone, I use Sprint unlimited data, so all my tablets have internet service via my cell phone.
    I pay nothing extra just my normal cell phone bill.

    I would ask your service providers what they support before buying anything over the internet. They might have the solutions you are after on offer already.

    My best suggestion is to check with the provider but it certainly is possible. If I remember correctly I have at least one WiFi router that accommodates a SIM listed in a link below re: communicating with no WiFi.

    so today i realized that on my "USB internet stick" that have sim from my provider inside, and that i plug in my pc to connect to internet have antenna "whole" here is the picture

    so im interested what do i need for it to work and send wifi to my tablet? and what is exactly the name of antenna i need?( so i could look it up on ebay) thanks!

    i found antenna! http://www.ebay.com/itm/TS9-3-5dbi-...635?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f05cd3e9b

    is this the way to go? will i be able to connect with this?
