Hi all, 

 

I have the above tablet on O2. It's the lte version. I was under the impression I could use it to make and receive calls,  if I wanted to?! I can get and send texts fine. Have I misunderstood something?

 

Thanks.

Yes sorry, I should have been clearer.
It's the tariff that doesn't allow it as o2 insist on selling this and other tablets with the ability to call, without a tariff that actually allows calling.

No GSM phone calls aren't possible but hangouts, facebook, bbm etc can place calls to corresponding apps.

Well, not with the o2 sim card anyway...
It does have a dialler as did the Z3, unfortunately it keeps getting sold on mobile broadband contracts so you can't actually use the function..

Yup, unfortunately it can on a standard pay monthly sim, but as MI5 said, you will have to look at over data alternatives as the provided tariff does not allow calls.

Thanks all - that would explain it. Bit disappointing that they give you some free texts but you can't make (or even recieve!) calls. Not that I probably would very often but it could have been handy!
