Thanks for contacting JustAnswer.com I am Cris.
A kindle fire does not require internet access in order to use. You are able to transfer books and files via USB cable.However having internet access gives you more access to download directly to the fire. Also with internet access on the kindle you can use more features.
Can the Kindle Fire games be played and books be read in a home that does not have internet service?
Will the Kindle Fire be useable in an area that has wifi?
Yes the kindle can be connected any where there's wifi.
So it is not necessary that the home have internet as long as the downloading process is in an area with wifi. Can the device browse? Or just read the already downloaded books and games.
Games and books once downloaded don't require internet access.
To browse the internet and check email will require internet access.
What is the difference between wifi and 3G. My Kindle has 3G. Does the Kindle Fire have 3G?
3G allows you to connect to cell phone towers to obtain internet access just about every where.
The kindle fire at the moment does not have 3G
They may release one down the line.
thank you for your time. The Kindle Fire is not for my grandson at this time.
