I am looking for a way to make calls from an Android tablet, namely Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 which has 4G/LTE support and thus has a SIM card slot. Do you know any ways of making calling from the Android tablet which are either official or not?

I am open for rooting, installing custom ROMs and using external equipment like headphones.


Are you trying to call using cellular only and not data? The device is on a data only plan even though it has a SIM card.

I suggest using Skype or Google Voice to call landlines, or Google Duo to call other Android users. Both of these options will route your call over data.


From what I read, it can receive phone calls. So, I assume there's a Phone app?

  • If I'm not misunderstanding the sentence, looks like it's referring to the "old SideSync app, which essentially virtualizes the phone in all of its glory on the tablet" but has a prerequisite of being "[o]wners of Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones." (looks like remote-controlling/syncing phone-to-tablet)
