    Hi guys,

    I'm new to this forum and I hope to make the most and contribute as I can... :)

    I own a Galaxy Tab 10.1 32gb without 3G, and a Galaxy S phone.

    What I want to do is to pair the two via Bluetooth so that the tablet will get the phone's capabilities for making calls, sending sms, surfing the web, etc... everything 3G.

    There is an application that does pair the two with BT and lets you send SMS and it's called Tablet Talk. I haven't tried that yet to be honest. but that's just SMS.

    You can also make a hot spot from the phone and that gives you internet.

    But I want something comprehensive that'll give me all the capabilities of the phone that I've paired with.

    Is there an app out there that does that and I just couldn't find it?

    If there isn't, I think it will be a good idea to develop one.

    I don't know of anything like that. Some of it is possible (just data and not Bluetooth so far as I know), but your carrier has to allow data tethering and even then - it's complicated and doesn't give you everything you ask for.

    The only tablets I know that can be used as a phone without any 3G or data connection are the original Galaxy Tab and the HTC Flyer. Both are really tablet sized smartphones.
