    can you use a TF303CL as a phone?

    if you had a bluetooth headset, could you use a TF303CL as a phone? Even if you had to side-load a dialler/phone app?

    Can it be used to send/receive SMS messages, again if you side-loaded an app?

    I had been contemplating getting a Sony Xperia Z3 tablet with LTE, which can be used as a phone (you can even hold it to your head if you really want to look like a dork ;-), but noone has produced a proper keyboard case/cover for it.

    thanks for any thoughts
    Paul

    You can use it to male calls using a Voice over IP (VOIP) service like Skype or hangouts dealer. To send text messages you can use an app like text plus (which can also make calls with the same number) of course this is only available over wifi connection and there isn't the possibility to hold the device up to your head.

    I can see this working quite well in an office setting with a Bluetooth headset assuming the the call quality from whatever service you are using is decent.

    thanks, but I am specifically thinking whether you can use the integrated LTE feature as a phone.

    Do you have one of these TF303CL models? This part of the forum is very lacking in activity?

    The 303 model is very rare around here and we have few contributors who own one.

    From what I understand, some tablets like the z3 you mentioned have software support for a sim card with a phone number attached. You can purchase a plan and use the built in phone app. It also has the ability to act as a phone (when placed against your head.)

    Other lte equipped tablets like yours have support for a 4g or lte connection for data stream only. There isn't any phone ability built in so you cannot get a phone number from a carrier.

    You can however use VOIP services as mentioned before to make calls. These services route your conversation through their servers and attach it to a phone number on their end. Depending on the app your experience may vary.


    So yes. If you have an app or service which you can use to make phone calls then the data connection can be used for this as well. Keep on mind that voice calls will use more data than you think so an investment in a high allotment data plan would be beneficial.
