We had posted a video demo of the PhoneitiPad last month. The tweak is finally available to in the Cydia Store for $19.99.

NOTES

  • PhoneItiPad requires your iPad 1 to be Jailbroken on iOS 4.3.3. Jailbreak guides are linked at the bottom.
  • iPad 2 Support will be added as soon as a jailbreak is out for it.
  • PhoneIt-iPad lets you sen/receive calls and SMS only. it is not MMS ready yet. Hopefully it will with next updates.
  • FaceTime is not guaranteed as it depends on your device/carrier/country. But it’s supported to work fine if you have no issues with the above.
  • Before installing PhoneIt-iPad, you should remove iFacepad, SwirlySMS, and Multitasking Gestures hack.

How to Install PhoneIt-iPad

Step 1 – Note Down your iPad 3G Serial number

On your iPad 3G, Go to Settings > General > About and note down your Serial number.
This serial number will later be used to setup PhoneItiPad.

Step 2 – Purchase PhoneItiPad

Purchase PhoneItiPad from here (for $19.99);
Provide your iPad 3G Serial Number when requested.

Step 3 – Install PhoneitiPad

Open Cydia;
Add the following repo: http://apps.iphoneislam.com (How to: add repo to Cydia);
Then go to Search tab and search for “PhoneItiPad” and install it.

How to Use PhoneIt-iPad

Now that you’ve successfully install iPhoneitIpad on your iPad 3G, Now you should be able to send/receive calls and SMS from your iPad 3G as shown in the original video by iPhoneIslam:

We have not tested the tweak ourself, however, if the posted video is to be believed, Phoneit-iPad works like a charm and is worth the $19.99. As far as iPhoneIslam’s legitimacy is concerned, they are the same folks who brought FaceIt3GS tweak to enable FaceTime on iPhone 3GS.

FAQ

Do I need a special SIM card?
No, just the regular phone SIM card. PS: Data SIM cards will not work as they are for internet use only. iPad that comes with SIM card inside it like from AT&T is a data SIM, hence you will need a regular one, You need activated SIM card with a phone service.
READ THIS: If your SIM card can make phone calls on phones then it will be able to make phone calls on the iPad./li>

I installed PhoneIt-iPad from your Cydia repo but nothing happened. What should I do next?
You must first activate your copy by clicking on the ”Active Now” button on this website, Then run PhoneItiPad app on your device.

Do I need to pay again if I restore my device or reinstall it?
No, You just pay once for each device.

Will you support iOS 5 and iPad 2?
When iOS 5 comes out and becomes jailbroken, sure we will work to bring the app to it. None the less, we can’t guarantee that we will able to do so. Same thing for iPad 2 we just waiting for a jailbreak for it.

Can I send an MMS?
PhoneIt-iPad is not MMS ready yet. Hopefully it will with next updates.

Will I have FaceTime too?
We don’t guarantee it as it depends on your device/carrier/country. But it’s supported to work fine if you have no issues with the above.

Can I use bluetooth headset for phone calls?
Unfortunately, there is no way to use bluetooth headset with voice calls, as the iPad 1 doesn’t support such feature.

Is there any other Cydia hack that could conflict with your hack?
Yes, before installing PhoneIt-iPad, you should remove iFacepad, SwirlySMS, and Multitasking Gestures hack.

hello,
Any update for ipad 2, yet?
For Iphone Islam Repo, I would recommend you to use a seperate server (other than the one from your site) to stores the serial number, or a trick to store inside the computer when it is syncing.
I have seen my friend is using the phone which is Samsung t-mobile tablet. By replacing the OS inside the tablet, he can use his tablet as a phone. The device is pretty cool and worth the money. Even the bluetooth headset can use.
For the Ipad, pls release something cool, or I will switch to the other any way. I believe that the Ipad will always be better than the other, except how long it would take me to complete all tasks.
