I am thinking of using the samsung galaxy tab 2 7.0 with wifi rather than sim card. Is it possible to do that? What are the steps I need to do to configure the tablet?

Very few I would have thought...... just switch wifi on

There are odd Apps, possibly some of your "core" Samsung Apps that would be looking for a gsm source, and may not work....

But I'm surprised you would want to do that ? I don't use my Tab to make calls, but the gsm data certainly comes in handy when out of wifi range.

The whole idea of the Tablet is portability and versatility, and without a sim card, that restricts you. I don't know about Singapore, but I have a sim in my Tab 7.0 GT-P1000 that costs me £5 GBP a month for 2Gb of data, and I find that I can happily do everything I need using gsm/wifi and never even use half of my monthly allowance.

I have a similar situation with my iPhone 5 where my 1Gb data allowance never gets used below 700Mb, just by using wifi where available, and avoiding Apps like Google Maps Navigation, and opting for Nav programs that store their maps on the Tab......

i use my galaxy tab without a sim card. To save on battery, i keep it on airplane mode (since i dont need the radio on because im not using a sim card.) Havent encountered any problem so far.
