    My smartphone is a little computer that I use rarely as a phone. Why must I pay for the phone function, when all I need is data? Why not get a small tablet with a data-only plan, and use Google Hangouts for phone calls? I do it now at home, with my tablet on wifi, but my tablet is a speakerphone, filling the room with my phone call sounds. Does any tablet have a speaker whose sound can be for my ear only? I don't want to take the time to get out a headset, or even a bluetooth earpiece, just to answer a brief phone call. BTW, TIM in Italy allows (cheap!) data-only plans for smartphones, and Hangouts worked great for calls to Italy and USA.

    Welcome.

    You may be able to use Tasker, or an app like it, to set the tablet to switch to a lower volume when there is an incoming call, or when you answer such a call.
