if you disconnect your printer from the internet, it will only print for a while, then it will complain that you haven't uploaded information to the web for a while, and won't work!
Yes, but this is only needed for when you go over your limit in a blue moon.

Current promotion for instant ink program is 2 months FREE trial (up to 300 pages), if you enroll to the program no later than 7days after you registered your printer.
If you didn’t get this offer, suggest you call HP.
They may give additional 1 promotional month to the one who called.

Regarding Instant Ink:
I am not an authority at all, but this is the info copy-pasted from my Instant Ink page, straight from HP.
I purchased the printer (8720), installed the included cartridges, then signed up for Instant Ink ("$3.99 plan for 50 pages a month")
Service Enrolled Date
Mar 31, 2019.
Ink Status
Your service hasn't started yet.

We shipped you ink, however your billing won't begin until you install an HP Instant Ink cartridge. Use your current cartridges until empty, then install the shipped ink.
As I read this, I can print as many pages as I like until the installed cartridges run out, and/or I install the "shipped ink" from the Instant Ink program.
0 of 0 used
Plan Pages
I can assure you I have printed more than 0 pages on the printer so far.

Weird, why some of us have Instant Ink ready starter cartridges and others do not. Here’s cartridge model number I have

it's what I have. Pretty sure it doesn't mean it is a full cartridge. All it says is >300 color or >500 for black

I don't think this is correct based on my talk with Hp representer . Once you join to the ink program, you cannot replace your instant ink with your starter ink. You can use your starter ink once you cancelled you HP instant ink plan.
I joined Instant ink today and they are going to send me instant ink cartridges. In meanwhile, my starter ink counts as instant ink and if i print more that 15 pages, i will be charged.

sooo much misinformation. when you register the printer into Instant Ink, the starter becomes part of it. The starter is Instant Ink "ready".

The very knowledgble rep told me, once you use another cartridge after the setup cartidge, you canNOT go back to using that setup cartidge.

Would be very happy to be proven wrong though!!
YMMV! See my ink status. I've my starter kit installed as well...

I'd like to know the answer to this too. I prefer to stick to traditional methods. Aka, once or runs out....I buy a new one at whatever store....

I haven't completely followed but I do not want to have my ink cartridge locked or limited or whatever it is that happens to it...

I find this instant ink program very confusing too. In contrast, my HP rep told me similar to what was posted there (I didn't know how knowledgeable he was though Winking Face) ... https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Inkjet-Pr ... -p/6901077

For those still looking to get one in the GTA, just called the store on Markham Rd and they apparently have some 8710 in stock. Store closes at 5 today.

this guy has a regular ink cartridge, not the setup cartridge
I wouldn't make a statement based on a guess as the guy didn't specify clearly he had the regular or starter. That's not the point though. The point is, the starter kit in some cases like FritzToch or myself (see our earlier posts), is no different from a regular kit and is not part of the Instant Ink Program. Again, YMMV.

Didn't realize modern HP inkjets just counts pages instead of estimating coverage. I cant even count on this printer to print a whole book in text without flashing empty at me. This thing cant be trusted at all.

Are you guys sure Costco refuses to fill up starter cartridges?

Thanks! I picked one up just before closing. They're still honoring the trade in promo. There was about 6 left when I left the store
