    Hi Guys and Girls...I have an FZ-X1 Toughpad that is voice and data capable and want to figure out a way to use it as a cell phone. There is suppose to be a firmware upgrade at some point that will add the phone feature, but I am hoping there is a way to do it that someone may know about. It does have dual sim capabilities and is 4g LTE for Verizon and AT&T...Thanks in advance, Travis
    PS This a a seriously device!

    Welcome to the forums.☺

    Wouldn't an app do it? Check in the Play Store, do a search for 'phone'. There's a range of possibly-suitable apps that come up.

    Another thing to consider is the cellular bands that device has versus the bands that your carrier uses. If they mismatch, it won't work.

    According to the specs, you just get an account with whichever carrier the model you have is designed for, they'll pop in a SIM card and you have a phone. (There are AT&T, TMobile, Sprint and Verizon models - you have to check the model number of yours [it should be on a label under the battery] against Panasonic's data to see which carrier the tablet was made for.) It's running 4.2.2, which is capable of running a cellphone without an update. (There may be updates available, but that's not necessary to use a cellphone. My old 2.3 Android still works - so does my old pre-Android Motorola V551.)

    The problem is no dialpad on this one. Is there a way to add one in to the OS?
