Whether this is your first tablet or you're an experienced tablet user, the topics below can help you get more out of your new tablet.

1. Transfer contacts and media

If you're upgrading from an old tablet, find the easiest way to move your prized pictures, videos, contacts and files on our Transfer Contacts & Other Content página.

Select the operating system of your old tablet and new tablet to see recommended steps for transferring your content.

2. Activate your tablet

Activating your new tablet is a necessary step to get started. Estas son algunas cosas que puedes hacer para asegurar de que el proceso de activación sea simple y perfecto:

  1. If you're upgrading from an old tablet, turn it off before turning on and activating your new tablet.
  2. Fully charge your new tablet before starting the activation process.
  3. Follow the activation instructions that came with your new tablet, or go to our iPad® o Android™ activation pages to learn how to active your tablet.
3. Protect your privacy and tablet

Take steps to keep your tablet safe and secure.

  • Prevent unauthorized use of your tablet by setting up lock screen security. You can choose to require a PIN or password to unlock your phone. Some tablets even offer fingerprint security. For instructions on how to secure your lock screen, visit your tablet's Simulador interactivo.

  • Set up a device recovery process at our How to Find Your Phone or Tablet page. 10 minutes of preparation could make a huge difference if your tablet is ever lost or stolen.

  • Avoid a damaged tablet and cracked screen by adding a case and screen protector. See which estuches y accesorios de protección are available for your tablet.

  • Guard your tablet from dangerous files with the Verizon Security & Privacy app for Android. Stay safe from adware, spyware, malware and viruses.

  • Get device insurance in case your tablet is lost, stolen, damaged or becomes defective. We recommend Protección Total Móvil que viene con garantía extendida para el dispositivo y asistencia técnica personalizada con Tech Coach.
4. Conectar tus cuentas de correo electrónico

Get ready to read and send email from your new tablet. It can sync with multiple web-based email accounts including Gmail®, Outlook®, Yahoo!® Mail and AOL® Mail. Setup can be as simple as tapping your tablet's email app and entering your login information.

Note: Setup can vary based on which tablet and email client. Email apps often contain settings that let you choose how often new emails are pushed to your tablet and how you'll be notified when a new email arrives.

For instructions on email setup, visit your tablet's Simulador interactivo.

What can you do with your new tablet? Con tantas apps a tu disposición, las posibilidades son infinitas. Aumenta tu productividad, mejora tu salud, lleva un registro de las tareas diarias, juega juegos y mucho más.

6. Comprender el uso de data

Your tablet uses data when you do things like browse the web, stream music, play videos and send emails on the go. Diferentes aplicaciones y actividades usarán diferentes cantidades de datos.

Si tienes un plan de data ilimitada, no tienes que preocuparte por controlar el uso de tus datos para no excederte de tu límite mensual.

Otherwise, you can monitor your data usage on the Mi Uso page, and configurar alertas de uso in My Verizon and on your new tablet with the My Verizon app.

Para ayudarte a conservar tu uso de data:

  • Conéctate a Wi-Fi para actividades que usan muchos datos como streaming de música o video.
  • Activa configuraciones que te indiquen cambiarte a Wi-Fi si intentas realizar actividades que usen muchos datos.
7. Conectarte con un accesorio Bluetooth®

Bluetooth is a wireless networking technology that lets you connect your phone to other wireless devices, such as headsets, speakers, headphones and fitness bands.

Typically, once a Bluetooth accessory has been paired with your tablet, it can be used with the tablet anytime without needing to pair them again.

For instructions on setting up Bluetooth, visit your tablet's Simulador interactivo.

8. Maximizar la duración de la batería

Most tablets are powered by a rechargeable, standard Li-Ion battery. With proper care, and by adjusting a few settings on your tablet, you can easily prolong your battery's life and extend time between charges.

Para maximizar la duración de la batería:

  • Mantén la batería fría.
  • Recharge your battery using the smart charger that came with your tablet.
  • Ajusta el brillo de la pantalla al nivel cómodo más bajo.
  • Desactiva las funciones que agoten la batería cuando no las uses, como Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS y fondos de pantalla dinámicos.
  • Cierra las aplicaciones que no estés usando para que no funcionen en segundo plano.

9. Place a video call

Most tablets come with the ability to place a video call, allowing you to see and hear the person you're speaking with.
