    Can BSNL Penta 701R can make voice calls using 2G usb dongle?

    • No there is no option for calling, It was clearly mentioned by the pantel itself.IS701R is a basic model with all common features introduced in the market for analysing the (pantel)sales and demand.It is like a test piece for pantel and once it is sucessful then they will introduce latest models and close IS701R sales(see in the website IS701R sales is stopped now)
      you have to use external data card to even use internet or get your inbuilt sim activated from a bsnl franchise store(running around bsnl office you know).It doesnt have bluetooth if you want to transfer pictures or songs or videos.We I got the device delivered, the OS was corrupt and I wanted to reload the OS .you connect your tablet to computer it will not even detect if you dont have windows XP(who will have windows XP these days….).To load the OS I had to buy a SD card and a card reader(these cost around 500/-).Loaded XP then used SD card with card reader then finally loaded OS to Tablet.Now since I didnt still activated my SIM so the tablet is lying waste at home.Please think before buying…
