Use Your Asus Transformer As A Free Phone
The beauty of our Android devices is that they don’t have to be phones to act as such and allow you to make and receive calls. There are a wide variety of programs that can be used to communicate with others via either voice or video. However, several of these require the other user to be using the same service and some are even paid if you need to make phone calls. There are a few tutorials for different devices on how to get free phone service scattered throughout the site, but not all of them work on every device. Luckily, XDA member MagnusRagnarok decided to post a guide for Asus Transformer users that will allow them, in a few simple steps, to get that extra piece of missing functionality on this, otherwise, quasi-perfect device. You will need to download a few programs and open accounts on a few free services, but the ability to have a second phone line without paying a dime (so as long as you can use your Wifi connection) is very much worth it.
This is well proven as it was crafted for the Motorola Xoom as well. If you have any suggestions on how to improve this guide, please leave them in the thread. Also, feedback is always welcome.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
