PhoneItiPad Turns Your 3G-Equipped iPad into a Smartphone


Just last month, we reported on PhoneItiPad, an iPad tweak that lets 3G-capable iPads take full advantage of a connection to a cell network, allowing users to make and receive phone calls, as well as send and receive SMS. A few weeks later, the tweak is finally available to the general public, for $19.99.

Here’s how to set it up:
Step 1: Locate your ICCID, which you should be able to find under System > General > About. This is your unique mobile identifier, which you’ll later need to set up PhoneItiPad.
Step 2: Purchase PhoneItiPad by clicking on this link (you can do this from computer). Insert your ICCID when requested.
Step 3: Fire up Cydia and add the following repository: Then locate the "PhoneItiPad" and install it.
Step 4: From here, the tweak should work directly, and you should be able to make calls and send SMS messages, 

as showcased on the original video released by iPhoneIslam:

You should think twice before giving out your unique ICCID to a third-party, but that seems to be a requirement to be able to make calls on the iPad. If the video above is to be believed, this hack works very effectively and is well worth the $19.99.

This tweak was developed by iPhoneIslam, which has developed FaceIt3GS, a software patch that allows iPhone 3GS users to use FaceTime, which is legally restricted to iPhone 4, iPad 2 and iPod touch 4G users.
