It will work on a regular phone line or WiFi, but it needs something to transmit the data.  

it depends

There are all sorts of different units. Mine is cell connected, so doesn't use my internet connection at all. It does need to be where there is cell service   though. As mentioned above, some connect to land lines and I'm sure there are some that do use WiFi. Did you have to configure it for your WiFi? If not and it's not plugged into the phone line, it's likely cell connected. Pick it up and see if it connects.

If you used your phone, then you can set your phone to be a "wi-fi hotspot" and allow other devices that use wi-fi to use it.  If you have an Android phone (eg Samsung, Sony etc) then it is under Settings, Connections, Mobile hotspot.

I'm very sorry about your wife! What a shitty thing to do! Call your EP's office and ask them what to do. They know what kind of set up you have. Mine used to be thru phone, now wireless, thru internet.

You do need to take care of this b/c regular monitoring is VERY IMPORTANT to your safety and well being.

Good luck, I'm sure things will get better for you!
