    Turn Your Jailbroken iPad into a Giant iPhone with Cydia App

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-36qTeAdDMI&feature=player_detailpage]YouTube - PhoneItiPad - Hack that turns your iPad 3G into a fully functional phone[/ame]

    Engadget reports today on a new Cydia app called PhoneIt-iPad which turns your jailbroken 3G iPad into a giant phone, complete with cellular calling and texting. The app comes from iPhoneIslam, who previously were responsible for the hack that got FaceTime onto the iPhone 3GS. The app costs $20 via iPhoneIslam teamís Cydia store, and is apparently available to download now. Electricpig, also covering the story, notes that while iOS 5 soon will be bringing a form of texting to the iPad with iMessage, that service will only work when texting other iOS device users, whereas PhoneIt-iPadís texting system will let the user send text messages to any phone on any carrier. The video explains exactly how the app works, and it really does seem to be very easy to operate, so worth a try if youíve been wanting to make calls and send text via your jailbroken iPad using giant buttons!

    There's an app that does this without jailbreaking, so I wouldn't jailbreak for this feature.

    Does this indicate that the voice GSM chip is already bundled in the Ipad 3G?

    I don't know. But the app I referred to is free, so you might want to check it out. It lets you call or do SMS. It's called Talkatone. No jailbreaking needed, but you need a Google Voice account, which is also free.

    this one calls via carrier just like iphone, the previous one uses VOIP via data call.

    OK, but that doesn't answer my question. If they both perform the same service, why is one way better than another? Not that I care to make phone calls on iPad, but I'm curious why it'd be worth jailbreaking and paying.
