12 Ideas on How To Use Amazon Fire Tablet Without Wifi

Not having internet access on your new amazon fire tablet can be really difficult especially if you’re used to everything at your disposal online.  Even something as simple as checking the weather or sending and receiving emails and messages, all of them make use of a working internet connection.  Luckily for you, we have come up with 15 tips that work for your amazon kindle fire tablet to help you out when you’re not connected to wifi.

#1: Cloud Storage Works Even Without an Internet Connection.  

All documents, photos, and videos are automatically saved in the cloud so that they can be accessed anytime, anywhere at no extra cost.  The great part about this is that if you don’t have internet access, simply download any of your files that you want to use later.

#2: Update all apps before going offline

Make sure that all apps are up to date before going offline.  Whenever an app is updated it will automatically synchronize the new changes to keep you connected even without an internet connection.

#3: Rely on your cloud drive

If you’re offline and you need to access an online file, simply download the file to your device through “all docs” in cloud drive or any other file that is available for offline use.

#4:Use offline maps

If you’re planning on using Google services when you don’t have an internet connection, activate your offline maps before going out of signal range.  This will allow you to use Google Maps even when offline and in places where there is no internet connection.

#5:  Download video/music for offline use

Use the chrome browser in downloading your favorite videos and music from youtube and other sites for offline use.  The great thing about this is that when you use the downloaded file to play it, it will not use your internet connection and therefore no data will be used.

#6: Save your files to Cloud Drive

 If you are using the fire tablet (or kindle fire HD), make sure to download all of your important files to a cloud drive before heading out.  This will save you space on the device’s storage and plus you won’t have to go through the hassle of downloading it later when you don’t have an internet connection.

#7:  Avoid purchasing anything

When you’re offline, try to avoid buying paid apps or downloading movies.  This is because the payment will be charged to your account and if you don’t have an internet connection, there’s no way for it to go through unless you turn on your monthly data usage (which can be done by pressing the settings button, move the cursor down to “data usage” and check it on).

#8: Customer service

Remember that Customer service is available 24/7, 365 days of the year.  This means that even if you don’t have internet access, you can still call them for any issue you’re having with your tablet.

#9: Try not to download big files

If you have to download something please remember not to download big files as it will take a lot of time to download and you might use up all of your monthly data allowances.  Instead, try using cloud drive and other services that allow you to save documents for offline use.

#10: Avoid streaming

When you’re out of the free wifi range, try to avoid streaming videos and songs.  This is because, for every minute that you stream or listen to music online, it will consume some of your monthly data allowances. It’s much better to watch downloaded movies rather than stream them in real-time (i.e. Netflix has a feature to download movies for later use).

PROTIP: You can always enable airplane mode to make sure that you won’t use any mobile data accidentally.

#11: Look for free WiFi

Free wifi can be found in most stores and hotels that provide complimentary internet access to their customer.  This is usually indicated by a sticker on the door or at least you will be told when making an inquiry.  Take advantage of this free wifi to download important files that can’t be accessed without an internet connection.

PROTIP: You can use the WiFi finder app to find many WiFi available nearby

#12: Remember about security

For security purposes, make sure that all your apps are password locked.  This will keep any unwanted person from entering your personal files which can be accessed even without an internet connection.
