Remember last week, when some clever hackers at xda-developers got voice calling functional on the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Tab? Well, they’re back with more. It would seem that, with the release of the Tab on AT&T comes the voice call hack for the very same tablet, and xda has the inside scoop on how to get it done for yourself.
Of course, just like last time, this isn’t a one-click trick. But, if you’re ready to don your geek hats and bust out with the nerd voice, hit the break for the official instructions. As always, you can hit the source link for the official thread over at xda, and TalkAndroid cannot be held liable to any damage to your device.
