Also tried a dialer app, which didn't work

SMS on Sim does work
Just wanted to let everyone know that i can send and receive text via cellphone tmobile SIM card using sms pro. Seems kind of strange that i cant do it with stock android. I have the 32gb US lte version. Cellphone voice would be so awesome. I guess i will just keep using voip until then.

I dont understand why there can be a 3rd party app that access the SMS sim capabilities and not a app that can access the voice capabilities

Using the tmobile cellphone sim on my US 32GB LTE version worked fine for a few hours and then it didn't. I had to replace the sim with a data version. Interestingly, even my data version has a telephone number... I wonder if sms would work... hmm...

Yes, I know this a is a necro, but pertinent.

First a link to the post where info about the version support calling is pulled from the FAQs: http://forum.xda-developers.com/shie...phone-t2937124
Now, a link to a thread that got me hunting for the wx_un_mo builds: http://forum.xda-developers.com/shie...-otas-t2847116
wx_un_do = LTE , unlocked, RoW (current data only version ROMs)
wx_na_wf = Wifi (current wifi version ROMs)
wx_na_do = LTE , unlocked, US AT&T branded (current AT&T data only version ROMs)
wx_un_mo = ???? (Appears to be the previously planned and now MIA version that allowed calling?)

That is the build that equates to 1.2 OTA.

There does not appear to be a valid match to the 1.2.1, 2.0, or 2.1 OTA for wx_un_mo.
Downloading it now, but not feeling well, so likely not going to even look at it today (not that I would even know what to look for directly like that).

OK, so I did a quick extract of both zip files and an MD5 hash of all the files included in wx_un_mo 1.2.
Maybe something here that will help with possibly making the ability to use as a phone possible.
There were 242 bad/different files and 20 missing files when comparing the output of wx_un_mo 1.2 and wx_un_do 1.2
Source of the compare data was wx_un_mo 1.2. So the files not found were NOT found in wx_un_do 1.2. Particularly interesting are the ones related to the dialer.

Missing / does not exist in wx_un_do but exists in the wx_un_mo line (bold on ones I thought might be interesting):

Performed a bit of an experiment.

Starting at 1.2 wx_na_do which came on the tablet.
I had run the OTA wx_un_do for 1.2.1 for the LTE Data only (did that yesterday actually when I rooted, etc).

Today, decided to back everything up. Did not bother wiping anything.
used CWM to sideload the OTA for wx_un_mo 1.2 (Yes, the lower/only version found).

Install succeeded. All my apps remained.

Reboot found the phone dialer as part of the system apps.
Attempts to dial cause the phone to disconnect (starts to dial, then drops the signal completely). Not even emergency service (911) attempts would dial. I do not have a SIM that fits for my current provider (thinking of getting one tomorrow to test).
I did not get the "Calls are not supported" message as reported earlier in the thread when someone tried using a dialer on the standard well known LTE ROM.

Re-ran the LTE 1.2.1 OTA via CWM. It removed the phone app and the system setting XML files along with the firmware that would allow it to launch.

At least it is pretty clear now the wx_un_mo was the phone model that has been left in limbo (likely cancelled given the lack of newer builds for it).

Hopefully someone smarter than I will be able to make use of that ROM and the files therein to figure out what need be done to make a working system that supports voice calling.
