answer 1
It has built in Wi-Fi. Find the settings icon on one of the screens. Slide your finger from right to left on the screen 2 times and touch the settings icon. It will be the first one on the right side of the screen. Turn on the Wi-Fi by touching the word Wi-Fi and it will show that it is on or off. It must be on to work.
NOTE: You must have a wireless network for this to work. If not, keep the wireless on and go to your MacDonalds, Burger King, or Airports where you can connect automatically. Hope this helps!

There has to be a wi-fi signal available- a router at your house, Starbucks, hotel lobby , etc- and you have to know the password if there is one to get on to the signal, just like with a laptop computer.

being able to connect with wifi means that it has a radar sensor inside it that will pick up on any wireless signal with in range to it. You must either own a wireless service at your home or be in an area that offers free wireless internet.

It means you can get wifi on the device if you have a connection available. That can be on a home network, or at a wifi "hotspot" such as Starbucks, McDonalds, and most putlic libraries.
The wifi setting arrives off by default. You press on. Most home networks have a security key that must be entered to gain access. Standardly, public hotspots require only clicking on the network name and accepting, though some may also require a security code to be entered.

You have to have wireless router connected to an internet service. The wi-fi option is in the settings, you have to turn it on then it will search for a network. If you have one available to use you might have to sign into it depending on whether it is password protected or not.

It will pick up wi-if just like a cell phone will or a laptop. you will have to go in and set up your password and such unless you are using and unlocked wi-fi signal. I don't recommed that as that is how other people can get your info. If you are trying to use wi-fi at home, you will have to have internet service first, then a wireless router that is set up for using your internet wirelessly! Hope that helps.

No you don’t have to pay a monthly fee you can just use the Wi-Fi when it is available But if you ever want to use this on the go you can upgrade this because it have 3-4g mobile broadband connections, Some carrier charge an additional 10 dollars if you already have a plan with them or you can link it to your cell phone for FREE depending on the phone you have

This is a cheap product. It does the same thing to me. I usually turn the wifi on and off sometimes it work, sometimes not. That was the first symptom of its malfunction, later on you will not be able to bring the apps to come on. I end up smashing this product. I also made a comment on my purchase review. I should have known ematic products because I also did the same thing with my mp3 purchase. Lesson: Do not buy Ematic products anymore. Walmart please do not sell this anymore!!!!!!

Question

To be clear, does this have a camera or not?

The Ematic people have said in one post that it does and you can video chat & such but then in another said it does not have a camera and therefore would not be able to video chat. Just looking for some clarity. Thanks!

I would think so, you may want to download some parental control apps. I have not found anything yet that will let me just turn my kids loose with one, but some will let you start up an app that will control what they can access. Sandbox is one of the top rated ones.

You can probably use amazon app store, but I wouldn't want to use it for any substantial writing unless you like tapping the letters with one finger to type. If you can get a external keyboard to plug in to it that might work.

yes they have note apps of many types. I would like to suggest evernote. I use it on every computer and it syncs between them all so that I can access from anywhere. It is very versitle and if you go to their website they have some excellent tutorials on inventive ways of using it.

Amazon apps offer one of their pay apps free everyday. and it comes preloaded with 3 different app sites to download from.

It mentions the application Evernote, which I use on my IPhone - I find it useful for writing, as well as taking notes DURING sermons. The usability of the keyboard would be my question with this - I haven't actually seen this ematic tablet.

Yes, you should be able to because the camera and video has nothing to do with Wi-fi unless you are using an app like skype or something like that. Understand that all I was ever able to make the thing do was video or photo myself. It only has the camera and it faces you as you are using the tablet.
