HOw to make local phone Call from IdeaTab A3000

2013-12-25, 5:18 AM

Hi,

Recently I have brought a Lenovo ideatab A3000 in UAE(). I have gone through the product page in the website and it has been mentioned that we call make/receive local phone calls. But unfortunately I couldn’t find the application in home page. After activated my simcard I could send message but cannot call. When I tried to call from another number to my number it is replying “Not reachable”.

I could find a running application called “Mobile Data and Mobile network configuration” with the call logo but it is not displaying in the home page.

Can anyone help me to fix this?

Thank you in advance.

Dear Dhinesht88

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community,

 

Unfortunately sir, The Tablet A3000 doesn’t have the option to make Phone calls, so there is no Application for the Dialer.

 

Best Regards,

 

Assal

Dear Sir,

 

Thank you to your inline immediate reply.

Please refer to the following pdf that confirms making a phone call is possible.

http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideatab_a3000_voice_qsg_v1.0_en_110_74_20130812_web.pdf

But unfortunately I cannot find the “Call” option in my home screen.

Moreover if suppose this model doesn’t have local phone call function may I know the significance of Dual sim card?

Please Help me in this regards.

If you have wifi access there are several Android apps that combine free texting and free and paid calling to cell phones and land line phones.

 

Find a texting app that assigns you a phone number like Pinger or TextFree or TextMe and they also allow inbound and outbound calling via wifi. The apps give you the first 60-120 OUTBOUND minutes free and unlimited free inbound minutes. You can purchase additional outbound minutes.

 

Also, these apps can be connected to a Google Voice account for additional services like answering service, call forwarding, call blocking, etc.

IF your firmware version does not include CALL or 3G as part of the name then the firmware in your tablet does not include GSM calling. My UK spec firmware has SMS so I can send and receive text messages but not make GSM voice calls. Lenovo issue different firmware for different market areas, some get calling some don't, only Lenovo know why, it's a mystery to the rest of the world. If you search the XDA forum the CALLing version of the firmware is available to download and flash your tablet but this requires considerable technical know how. The process is complicated and there are at least a couple versions of the hardware (16GB vs 4GB, for example) which the firmware must match.

If you can elicit a reason from Lenovo for not supporting GSM voice in all markets every A3000 user in Europe would appreciate it.

Ich habe das IDEA Tab 3000 mit Adroid 4.2.2 und habe 2 Apps für Mobilfunk.

 

das erste App zum Eirichten, das 2 zum Telefonieren

 

allerdings werden die Apps nur bei "alle" Apps aufgelistet und ich kann mir die Eigenschaften anschauen, jedoch kann ich die Apps nicht in die "Aktiven"Apps übernehmen???

 

Weiß hier jemand Rat?

Excuse English, if you have a European model of the A3000 you do not have the firmware to make GSM calls, so the apps will install but not be able to call. Some telephony apps will not run if they cannot find the API for voice, some will run but allow SMS only. Maybe the apps you installed do not run since they cannot find the Call API.

If that is true, then Lenovo has misrepresented what these tablets can do.

I also bought my S5000H in the UAE. The specs are pretty clearly advertising that these tablets do Voice Calls. And I am not talking abt Skype, or other WiFi calling. I am talking real, Cel-Phone calls using your SIM
