No but I have an ASUS which I do use as a phone.
You need to use headphones or earphones as you look a berk with a tablet to your head.

I used to use my TabPro as a phone overseas before TU was announced dead,life extinct. Sometimes with no earphones but on speaker. Just to show off to the bar girls you understand. .....

Hello, and Thank you all for your reply to my public post.

 

I have been with O2 for years. Very happy.

Yes, I am thinking about buying a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 (with SIM and LTE enabled), for two reasons:

 

1.

I am desperate for Handwriting-to-text Recognition with Palm Rejection. This appears to be the best tablet around, but I wish I knew if the 'Note' range is just as good (half the price). I intend to use the pen as the only input device, as I don't like tiny keyboards. I'd love some advice from a Samsung expert.

 

2.

I am fed up of carrying around three things: a paper notebook and a phone and a tablet.
I'd like an all-in-one device. I realise this is only useable with earbuds, so I am wondering how to carry around the earbuds and S-pen securely. Any advice would be appreciated.

 

Unfortunately, this tablet with pen and case and memory etc comes to over 700 pounds!

I don't have that yet, so will have to save until I get it.

 

The Microsoft Surface range is the ultimate in tablets, I think, but they can't be used as a phone and are over 1000 pounds.

 

Finally, my current iphone 5s is at the end of it's contract, but I am refusing to upgrade the ios, because it will kill my phone!

So I am under a bit of pressure to upgrade.

 

Anyway, thanks for listening to my dilema!
