Yes you can. I can send/received messages and call with this tab. Just make sure that you aregetting the LTE version not the wifi version.
As this tablet supports 4G LTE . .i will change my old sim card soon ..., and get a new 4G sim instead.
I think that it will run faster with 4G

I'll try to ROOT my tab S to wipe out those unwanted pre-installed sam apps.
Can we use Tab S 8.4 LTE as a phablet?
As i am using galaxy mega 6.3 easily fit in my pocket and have no issue. I want to buy this tab as phablet for normal use, keep in my jeans pocket etc so share your views guys if u have this beauty giant.
I would say... There is a battery error on the tab.
The wrong battery info is affecting the charging, and also the battery life.
Hope Samsung come up with a software update to resolve the issue.

I bought my tab S 8.4 two days ago and battery really sucks. Charging is really wierd. I observed the charge went sometimes from 65% to 100% in a second? come on!! Battery drains so fast. I did hard reset and wipe out data but still the same battery life after reseting.
Today I leave it playing music to fully drain the battery, hopefully will fix battery issues after recharging.
I'll post my observation later.
