I am trying to set up my Samsung tablet and failing at every

This answer was rated:

I am trying to set up my Samsung tablet and failing at every stage.
I have three enquiries.
1 I want to be able to access the internet while travelling (I have BT)
2 I want o be able to get Google Chrome
3 If it is possible I would like to use home office
Do I need to make a monthly subscription for any of these.
How do I do it?
Do you make a charge for this info.?
Do you have enabled the Internet Service from your BT ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes. I have a BT Home Hub which I use for my laptops.

OK, do you want to access Internet from your home router ?

I would like to be able to set up the tablet as per my initial three questions.

i.e; initial set up to get Google Chrome, access while travelling and installation of Home Office and other devices / aps.

Do I need to set up accounts to do this?

Can you tell me, which model of Samsung tablet you are using ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Samsung Galaxy 4

If you want to access Internet while travelling then, you have to buy a SIM card and enable Internet connection, because you cannot use your Internet connection from home router, while travelling. Now, next is using chrome. You can download it from Google Play Store. But for that, you will need to have a gmail account, which you can sign up for free. Can you explain, what exactly do you mean by "Home Office" ?
Are you there ?
Do you need any further information ?

Sorry, I thought I had sent my further queries which go back to the original.

How do I set up the tablet?

For emails. (using my ordinary email address rather than gmail)

For 'Home Office' or any other typing package such as Windows.

For connecting while travelling (for which I have a BT account)

For access to Google. Do I need to pay for an account to set this up, because I certainly do not on the laptop!

Sorry, four more questions.

As I said before, which you have missed out. You cannot use your home internet while travelling, You have to buy a SIM card and enable internet service on it. If you want to download apps like chrome or anything else then, you have to use Google Play store and you cannot use it without a google or gmail account, so you have to create a gmail account for that purpose. You can configure the default email app on the tablet to access your regular email account. After you enable the Internet service and created the gmail account, you can download chrome from the playstore and then access any website from chrome. Gmail account is free, so there is no need to pay anything to them , but you have to pay BT or any other service provide, whose SIM card you will be using for the Internet service.

First, buy a SIM card for your tablet and enable Internet service on it then , only you can access Internet while travelling. If you want to access Internet at home then, you can connect your tab with the wireless connection in your home. I can help you to do that.
