seen that a lot of people are asking how to make the galaxy tab p 1000 work as a phone. Can you help me with turning mine into a phone or not. Seen questions on this. However i don't see any answers. Also I'm trying to figure out what power is needed to charge it as well have a cable made for it but lost the power port. but own a bunch from other devices and want to find out if I can use one of them. Also does the cable change at all from model to model. I'm getting a red line on the battery when charging. Is that something I should be worried about. And what is making it do that.
My 8.9 USED to be able to make phone calls. For some paranormal reason, it suddenly stoped. I tried upgrading to ICS but it didn't help.
