Default [Q] Sprint Galaxy Tab 3 Missing Phone Icon

Ok my question is this.

Deep inside my apps manager there is a phone ICON and no phone icon on the tablet anywhere else and no where to access this green icon.

How do I get the Icon from the manager and onto the phone somewhere ?

Its not in any of the trays or apps page etc. Its no where to be found but it exists deep in the apps manager. I dont want to use Voice and all the other BUL$&%T voice over IP junk apps.

I want the green phone Icon that is hidden deep in the device accessed some how

Again
It doesnt let me hard press and move the icon from the manager and its NOT anywhere else on the device.

If you have a real answer that I havent covered above then help me out !!!!

You must be rooted first and if you want to delete it use no bloat free and if you want to move it use root explorer and system apps are under /system/app or you just go to app manager and turn off anything you want but beware what are you doing

I want to get this button from deep inside the device and access it.

I want to turn the Tab 3 into a phone... Without using the junk apps to do voice over IP

I want it as a direct mobile device

Oh ok, I misunderstood this.
What is your device model?

Sprint doesn't enable phone calls on the tablets. The closest to tablet Sprint provides with phone functions is the Galaxy Mega.

Until recently you could use Google Voice and a number of other products for data-based voice services, but Google is disabling that in May 2014.
