Default Kindle Fire HDX LTE - Make Cellular Telephone Calls ?

Hi,


Can anyone please verify if the Kindle Fire HDX can make standard phones calls ? When I say Standard I mean over the celluar network opposed to VOIP or SIP ?


Thanks


Ash.

No. Amazon modified the activity in Phone.apk, and if you want to make phone call using that way, nothing would happen. But since I can receive the SMS (yes, only receive, will show as a notification, and no way to reply/send), I thought it is possible to enable phone call feature with lots of work.

scx110a,
Could you tell me if SIM cards on HDX is removable or not (because of T-Mobile on your screenshot it looks like it is)? If it is, how hard is it to change it and is it similar to HD 8.9 (youtube.com/watch?v=flsyBX3PUkw)?

Certainly removable, and it's a NANO SIM (the same as iPhone 5), you only need a SIM pin to eject the sim tray (still same as iPhone 5). And I think it is similar to HD 8.9.

Can anyone confirm if the KIndle Fire HDX 8.9 will work with T-Mobile? I've been searching but can't find a definitive answer.

I don't think there is, the phone.apk file's been altered. Your best bet is to just use a VOIP service.
