Nexus 7 Used As a Phone.
« on: November 11, 2012, 03:11:37 PM »
I have tried what it seems for hours. Many, many different apps including Google voice with Groove IP which I had high hopes for in combination with numerous different bluetooth speakers, headsets and earphones. I am frustrated. Not as frustrated as my wife who has to answer my numerous test calls which make a "do you hear me now" commercial pretty comical. I have tried  running wifi in the house and 4G connection that is at over 5megs
 d/l and almost a Meg up. I am not expecting crystal clear conversation but I really just want it to be acceptable. Is this asking too much using the tools and technology that is available right now?

I haven't tried it but there's an app called tablet talk that claims to have voice capabilities it links either directly through bluetooth or over your wifi network to you phone you should check it out to see if it would meet your needs

Tablet Talk doesn't actually make calls from the tablet, you can dial from the tablet but the Bluetooth headphone connection is between the headphones and the phone connected to the tablet via Tablet Talk.

I tried TT. It has its strong points but is in the bin for what I need.
