Do you want to own an Apple iPad that is entirely functional in nature? If yes, then first you must be thankful to the team of iPhoneIslam for making it possible. The iPad users, running the latest iOS 5 update can install PhoneIt-iPad and start making calls right from their device. This app is available at a price of $19.99 and it depends on your idea to make yourself available for it as the benefits that are rendered may exceed the cost. Once you are done with the downloading, you can initiate it online just by entering your iPad’s serial number. At this point i have a word of caution: You will not be in a position to switch the serial number to a different device because it comes under a one-device per purchase.
Before you purchase the software there are a few things that you must be aware of:
1.The current hack stands with the original iPad with 3G only. This works with iPad with 3G because there is no jailbreak available for iPad 2 on iOS 5 as of now. So you turn unlucky if you have the second-generation iPad or ones with Wi-Fi only capabilities.
2.You can use the activated SIM with a mobile service that is there in your phone and make calls even on an iPad. A plain ‘ole data SIM card will not do.
3. As the hack requires an access to the Cydia Store, your iPad must be jailbroken. And this can be done by jailbreaking iOS 5 tethered using Redsnow. If you want to know how it is done then you can follow the step by step procedure as stated here. You can install ‘SemiTether’ patch from Cydia to make your jailbreak semi-tethered on iOS 5 because jailbreak on iOS 5 is currently limited to tethered boot only. For those of you on iOS 5.0.1 can follow the instructions that are available over the web regarding how to jailbreak using Redsnow, AcidSnow, or using Snowbreeze.
Presently, iPad 2 does not support the hack because of the presence of different hardware. According to the developers they can not anticipate by when it will be poised for action but they seem to be working hard to finish it as soon as possible. Thus the developers behind the hack are promising an iPad 2 version too.
PhoneIt-iPad brings you many opportunities that you have ever dreamt of but on the other hand if you use this app you will ought to forgot some features like MMS (picture messaging) and Bluetooth. Since iTunes still sees your hacked iPad for what it is, ringtones won’t be supported either. FaceTime, one of the feature that will brought on in a future update but as far as this is concerned, developers have no valid guarantees.
If you need this app you can find it under the repo in Cydia given below
