Finally! PhoneItiPad, the jailbreak tweak that transforms your 3G iPad into an iPhone by allowing you to send texts and make calls, is now live in Cydia and can be downloaded on your jailbroken 3G iPad, today.
PhoneItiPad does come at a price by the way. Get ready to part with $19.99 just to transform your 3G iPad into an iPhone, but for the features its offering you, this price tag seems justified. Also, keep in mind since the iPad 2 can not be jailbroken as of now, this will only work on the first generation jailbroken 3G iPad.
Follow the procedure we’re documenting below to get PhoneItiPad working on your 3G iPad:
Step 1: Go to the Settings.app, tap on General and then on About. Copy your unique ICCID very carefully.
Step 2: Now purchase your copy of PhoneItiPad from here and when asked for your ICCID, punch it in.
Step 3: Then start Cydia on your jailbroken 3G iPad and add this repository: http://apps.iphoneislam.com/
Step 4: Search this repository for PhoneItiPad, and then install it once you have located it.
Step 5: Make some calls and send some texts from your 3G iPad, as it has now been transformed into a fully functional phone.
Security buffs would get a little nervous when they see that handing over their unique ICCID is a requirement for this to function, however, this is no work around for this as the ICCID has to be given in order for PhoneItiPad to work.
So will PhoneItiPad make you put down your phone and use your 3G iPad for phone functions? Let us know by dropping a comment below !
