Short story, My 83  year old mother got a notebook when she changed over to Verizon. She is going to be in the  hospital soon. What can anyone tell me about these notebooks? It of course is sitting at Mom's house as she has not clue how to use. She can use a computer. If she has Verizon for her internet connection does she need anything else to use her notebook?  If the hospital has WiFi can she take it and keep in touch with there? Is there a plan for access with the notebook different from that of the internet connected to her computer? Thanks for any info!!

The notebook that Verizon is giving out is just a basic computer. it will work anywhere. Just like any computer you would go down an buy.


Now she will not be able to get internet from her fios when she is away from home. The fios only works at the house. Now if the Hostpital has wifi or any other internet connection available. All she will need to do is connect to their system and she will be good to go.


Error exists between keyboard and chair.
