    Tablet as phone in Straight Talk

    Does it possible to use an Android Tablet/iPad as a Phone in Straight Talk or in any other prepaid wireless carrier without a actual phone ?

    Is any one successful in that ? If so, Which tablet you have used and the steps to configure.

    Thanks for your time.

    Technically yes, but contractually the T&C specifically state you must use a handset. After all, how can they make those "warning calls" to you, LOL?

    I could see you doing this, and still being able to make calls with a bluetooth using google voice...but like pzwnyc said, it might be against ST's terms.

    And if all you want is data, I would suggest considering a mifi device. The big carriers have them, but there's a few others that are good deals...don't recall the name, but there's one that is like $45/month for unlimited 4g. If all you're using is data anyway, why not get that and connect your tablet to it via wifi, you'll have unlimited 4g.

    You can make free calls over wifi with the tablet using the vonage app
