Definitely one of the most exciting new hacks in the iPad jailbreak scene, iPhoneIslam team, the guys responsible for FaceIt3GS, are looking to bring the full functionalities of a phone to your iPad 3G. As it is generally known, the iPad 3G is capable of many things except for making a call or sending SMS text messages, which is a huge disappointment for many people. One can use a VOIP app such as Skype or Fring, but it is simply not the same thing.
Introducing the PhoneItiPad, a jailbreak tweak that enables your iPad 3G to utilize calling and SMS functionalities, just like an iPhone or any regular phone. Here's the video demo just to give you an idea on how this jailbreak hack works:
To enable such hack, you won't require any sort of special hardware, just a jailbroken iPad. To quote iPhoneIslam team:
"A hack that will change the game. Can you imagine turn your iPad to a fully functional phone.
With No Special Hardware all what you need is Jailbroken iPad 3G and your iPad 3G will do anything you expect from iPhone... Phone Calls, SMS, FaceTime by Phone Number... ETC"
It is easy to be skeptical, especially considering what it can do, it's found in Youtube and the quality of the video itself. But it is worth noting that iPhoneIslam has already released a legitimate iPhone 3GS hack. So we are being cautiously optimistic for now.
No confirmed release date yet for the PhoneItiPad, but the developers have said that it will make its way to Cydia "very soon".
For sure, we'll be on the lookout for this promising new hack from iPhoneIslam team, so be sure to regularly check back with us for updates.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
