I live in Spain, have just acquired a new Galaxy Tab, but cannot connect to internet.

Therefore I cannot access anything on the programmes.

I have not used a SIM card as I shall not use it as a mobile phone

When you search in wifi settings, do any wifi networks show up i.e your own home network for instance ?.
It may be worth you getting a data only sim for internet use on the move.

I live in Spain have problems connecting to public wifi areas as well, no problem most of the other time just on a few public ones. There's a few threads on this matter if its "obtaining ip address" but never fully connects.
