I always access the internet from my iPad. I can use the phone for that as well; but it is so much smaller than the iPad is, and I have the keyboard for the tablet, and not for the phone. I only go online from home, so I am using my home wifi for access, and that way it is not using any cellular minutes. I still have my old iPad and the new one, which is the larger iPad Pro, so I do switch back and forth between the two tablets. We have a Dell all-in-one computer with an 18" monitor; but we hardly ever use it al all because both my husband and myself have tablets and we use those. We seldom even use the television anymore either since we can see almost the same things on our iPads.
