iPhoneIslam has released a blurry YouTube video demonstration of a hack that will allegedly allow for the iPad 3G to make phone calls, send text messages, and more. The hack would require that one have a jailbroken iPad 3G and, once enabled, it “turns your iPad 3G into a fully functional phone.” iPhoneIslam claims that the hack, which is known as PhoneItiPad, is set to appear on the Cydia Store soon. Since there is currently no publicly released jailbreak for the iPad 2, this hack would be compatible with the original iPad 3G only.
The authors behind the project gave some input as to what we can expect:
A hack that will change the game. Can you imagine turn your iPad to a fully functional phone.
WIth No Special Hardware all what you need is Jailbroken iPad 3G and your iPad 3G will do anything you expect from iPhone… Phone Calls, SMS, FaceTime by Phone Number… ETC
It’s important to take this rumor lightly, as hoaxes and false rumors of this sort are fairly commonplace. iPhoneIslam has released one other hack in the past, known as FaceIt3GS, which enables FaceTime on the iPhone 3GS. Let’s hope that their positive track record continues. The YouTube demonstration can be found after the break.
