How do I make this thing work? I need a SIM card?

Excuse my ignorance, but I just picked up a refurbished GS TAB S to use ONLY with my drone controller and I apparently can't connect to the interweb without a SIM card? Is that right?

I don't need to use this thing as a phone, I just want to be able to enable WIFI. Part of my confusion here has partly to do with the fact that I bought a used iPad years ago, turned it on, and was able to connect to WIFI.

Thanks for any help.

I know nothing about drones, but I doubt that you require WiFi to control one. I would imagine that you have to pair the tablet and the drone using Bluetooth.

Is there nothing in your drone's manual about connecting to a mobile device?
