Recommendations? att compatible tablet
#1
I am forced to admit I am a digital junkie and it has got to stop.
To begin I am dumping ifone for a flip.
I would like to have a low end yet wireless tablet to throw in the car and leave there for simple things like access to mapping sites. micro sd card is always a plus as e-reader software would mean I always have books with me if I am sitting at a doc's office or such but is not a requirement.

Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance.
I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

I am a huge fan of Samsung. The Galaxy Tabs are fairly cheap and small. Accessories for them are everywhere.

If you are wanting it to be wireless only, they are really low cost. But if you are wanting a data plan, you'll have to check with your carrier to see what offers they have.

I'd reconsider the flip phone change, though.

Why in light of my addiction?

I'm a fan of my flip-phone. All I need is a flip-phone.

I am a semi fan of Samsung tablets. The thing I dislike about Android based devices is Google.
They have hard coded their DNS servers into Android hardware. (like 8.8.8.8) even if you have set your DNS servers on your LAN to OpenDNS, the Android device will do a DNS lookup through Google's servers.

That said, I have a Kindle Fire HD tablet. It's just a "big A" branded Android tablet. I use it over WiFi only.

However, the OP says needs to be compatible with ATT. I assume that means ATT cellular data.
ATT is one carrier that still uses whatever they now call GSM.
You might look at the ATT website.

If I may add -- I HATE ATT. Greedy ***** !

I have a flip-phone that I used for 30 minutes. It came from Consumer Cellular. I think they used ATT as the actual carrier. It is free to anybody that wants it.

Because of your addiction. Remove all the apps you absolutely do not need. Remove all games.

If you text more than once a day, a flip phone is going to drive you nuts. If you want to stop texting more than once a day, then a flip phone probably won't stop it. You'll just get better at it.

Sometimes it is better to curb a habit than to stop it altogether. Because you aren't curing yourself. You're just removing the cause. Like clear-cutting an entire forest because you are allergic to pecan trees. For example, my sis-in-law removed Facebook app from her phone and suddenly her family saw her face again and not just the top of her head. Her phone is no longer attached to her hand every second she is awake. There's a few games she enjoys but it has become easier to put it aside because games pause, FB doesn't.

Kindle is extremely privacy invasive. I'd rather Google know my every move than Amazon. I can put any ebook I want onto my Galaxy Note and know that when I turn it on, they will still be there. I want my bookmarks and highlights to be private, too. Not always true with Kindle.

Mark,

Funny you should ask. I love my Samsung Note. I got a Note 12" (not cheap) because I use it for my job. I skipped the data plan because I tether (I have Verizon and way more data than I can use in a month 15Gb).

Samsung makes great products and as I am a Computer Professional and use them for my work daily. When I get home I drop them in one spot and leave them charging over night. Time out from using electronics to have family time. I do find that I use my cell phone (the Note 3), to look up stuff to make myself look like a genius. I am fairly quick at it. They are great for directions, store hours, routing around traffic and more.

I am less worried about Amazon and Google then data breaches than most other ways. Anyone that isn't on the internet has less of a chance of controlling what the internet has on you. Search one of your friends that has NO access to the internet. I found details about a person that I could take over their identity, in plain sight. You might be shocked.

I despise fbook so not a problem.
I regret the day my now wife saw my Ipaq 200 as she then got an ifone and yes I have seen too much of the top of her head staring at it and is putting serious strain on our marriage.
I hate text and avoid as much as possible.
I Don't play electronic games anywhere on anything.
Spending too much time here for that matter.
