I am interested in getting a Kindle Fire however, I wanted to know if I need to have any type of devices in order to use it? I have just a reguler fliptop phone with Verizon but, not a smart phone. I am not a TECHY so, would need anything in order to run kindle fire at home or traveling?

The Fire is a stand-alone device. You don't need any other device (phone, computer, etc.) to use it or any features of it.

You need a WiFi network for the Kindle to connect to the internet and Amazon. Depending on where you work, your company may have a WiFi network you can use there. You would need to speak to your IT department. Don't be surprised if they deny your request however. Some IT departments are very strict about who and what they allow on their networks.

A WiFi router and high speed internet feed would help.

You should do more independent research. These questions make me think a Kindle Fire would be too complicated for you from the outset.
