How else would you use the 4G? I don't think you can.

You don't have to use the 4G. It will just be there later if you want to sign up for it. But heck for $50 for this first year I would still get it in case of emergency. You can't beat that price.

The sim card is not replaceable so you can't opt out to save $50

You don't have to purchase the data plan- if you already have and ATT plan you can use that, or remove the SIM chip and use something else.

You don't have to pay for or use the 4G plan but you're still paying more for the 4G hardware in addition to the higher price for more capacity.

The SIM chip is not removable. They can't use something else.

The SIM card cannot be removed.

I have my own internet connection wherever I would be. I just want the extra hard drive space but not the connection.

Then it's not even a matter of opting out, more a matter of just not opting in. I have a tablet with AT&T 4G and I just never signed up for the cellular connectivity.

Thanks, I think this answers my question best. I just didn't know if you were obligated to pay the extra $50. I appreciate everyone's time & answers.

You're welcome. A tablet is not like a smart phone that requires a commitment.

I did get the plan, but they also offer plans that allow you to pay in advance for 1 month for 250mb or 3g or 5g. That way you could sign up if you were going on vacation or were without internet for some reason without a commitment for longer than that month.
