I just can't see a thread dedicated to using a Samsung Galaxy tablet as a everyday phone?

I have seen on other sites people using their Tab 3 10.1 or Note 8 as primary cell phones but I really need to ask you experts.

Can you tell me what tablets will accept an ATT card and work as a phone?

Thanks a bunch...

no tablet on the tab 3 line has phone/text radio. however if you have enough data you could use mo+ or talkatone for phone service

Thanks, I just purchased a Tab 4 10.1 and rooted it.

I did read in an article that was putting down using tablets as phones that one of the guys was using a Samsung Tablet as a phone but is said that he put his sim card in it and I have not seen a Samsung Tablet that lets you open the back (not counting my Note 3)...

Thanks for the info and now I need to work on ERick to make an Alliance ROM for this..., LOL

No the international version of these tabs all work as phones. At least the 7" & the 8".

I have been using the T211 on T-Mo as an everyday phone. It should work with AT&T as well.
