T-Mobile Galaxy Tab hacked to make phone calls

For some crazy reason, Samsung removed the ability to make phone calls from all U.S. Galaxy Tab units. Sure, Europeans get to hold a big ol’ 7″ dinner plate to their face and talk to their friends all they want. U.S folks? No way, Yankee Doodle.

This is 2010, though, an age where no misdeed goes unhacked. And sure enough: the fine gents over at XDA have undone Samsung’s misdoings, enabling phone calls on the T-Mobile Galaxy Tab. It’s a bit of a tricky process, so don’t go diving in if you’re not comfortable with the idea of becoming the proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy Tab-replica paperweight.
