I have always taken a laptop away on holiday with me so I could keep in touch with family and friends without the expense of phone calls. As it took up most of the hand luggage weight, I decided to get an iPad Mini as it's smaller and lighter. However, I've been away in this country for a couple on long weekends and, although the hotel had free wife, the Mini couldn't connect at all. My partners laptop could and so could my phone, but not the iPad Mini. So much for taking it abroad with me then, if it won't connect here. What I'd like to know is whether this is normal or if there is something I can do to get it to connect. Can anyone help me please? Many thanks.
