You may recall this tweak being demoed a couple of weeks ago only to not hear anything about it for quite some time.
Well today we’re happy to announce iPhoneIslam has released PhoneIt-Pad which will turn your ipad 3g into a fully working iphone. Sooo who’s going to be the first to hold up their huge phone up to their face in public? Don’t forget to take a picture and send it in for us to see.
PhoneItiPad is a little steep on the price selling for $19.99 but if you really do plan on using your ipad as a jumbo sized iphone then it should be a nice investment.
Here is how to set it up thanks to Redmondpie:
Here’s how to set it up:
Step 1: Locate your ICCID, which you should be able to find under System > General > About. This is your unique mobile identifier, which you’ll later need to set up PhoneItiPad.
Step 2: Purchase PhoneItiPad by clicking on this link (you can do this from computer). Insert your ICCID when requested.
Step 3: Fire up Cydia and add the following repository: http://apps.iphoneislam.com. Then locate the “PhoneItiPad” and install it.
Step 4: From here, the tweak should work directly, and you should be able to make calls and send SMS messages, as showcased on the original video released by iPhoneIslam.
You should think twice before giving out your unique ICCID to a third-party, but that seems to be a requirement to be able to make calls on the iPad. If the video above is to be believed, this hack works very effectively and is well worth the $19.99.
