No. System was not designed to work as a phone. Maybe VoIP apps like Skype could work

The answer is simple: No!
The Archos 3G stick is a data modem without voice support.
The firmware inside this stick simply does not support these features.
There's no app that could fill this missing part...

Answer is simple: YES!

Set up your google account with google voice. make sure your assign yourself a phone number.

Install the following apps:
-Google Voice
-GrooveIP

Use GrooveIP as a dialer and Google Voice for texting and voicemail.

Congratulations, your tablet is now a fully functional smartphone
