I means there is no connection to a telephone network. Internet and email is available only through a wi-fi connection, which is available almost anywhere.

You evidently don’t have Mobil ability with your iPad so you can only operate with internet wi-fi if you had Mobil ability you would be able to use data same as your phone

It means you need an available wifi connection to get online. Some model ipads can be activated on the networks of most cell phone companies and use a data plan to access the internet. This model is not capable of being activated for cellular use.

This particular iPad does not have the capability to connect with a cellular system, its only means of getting on the Internet would be via a wifi system such as your home system or a hotspot from your phone.

There is a different model that has a cellular chip in it to access the internet without having to connect to WiFi. It costs more and you must pay for monthly data this one requires an internet connection through WiFi to access things not on the device.

You need to have internet hotspot for WiFi use.
If you have internet in your home, you will have internet access on iPad

You can not use the iPad in a non wifi area. You cannot use it unless connected to wifi.
