Can this device be used by people with tablets (no text messages) or by those who are reluctant to tie a phone number to their device?
I would like to allow my kids, who have only tablets, to use these. As for myself, privacy is important, so not sharing my phone number for something that does not need it, seems optimal.
I am asking because of this Amazon review.
The description of this item says: Chat, Send Texts & Location Information Without Cell Service or Wi-Fi. But it does require a cell services to activate the device. During the activation step you should provide a cell. phone number and they will send you a text message. How can you do this without a cell services? There are no other options available to activate the device (like via e-mail).
