How can I connect my tablet to my smartphone?

Episode 1211 (28:35)

Ray from Oceanside, CA
Karma Go

Ray got his first smartphone, as well as a new tablet. How can he connect it to his phone so he can get cellular internet while he's on his sailboat? Leo says that if he can get internet through his cell phone, he can create a hotspot with his mobile phone and connect his tablet using tethering. That usually costs an additional monthly fee, though. If he doesn't have cellular data, he could try satellite.

Is there another way other than connecting to phones? Leo says that a MiFi card can access the cellular data network and he can connect up to five devices. One that Leo found is called Karma Go, which is pay as you go at $15 a GB. The downside is that it connects via Sprint. If he doesn't have good Sprint coverage, then this won't help. So whatever has the best signal, go to them and he can get a MiFi card that works for him.
