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 teamâ€™s 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-iPadâ€™s 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 youâ€™ve been wanting to make calls and send text via your jailbroken iPad using giant buttons!
