One of the first things I thought of when I saw the uConsole had a 4G LTE module was: can I make/receive phone calls with this?
A more concrete question: is something like creating a Voice over LTE (VoLTE) program possible using the available hardware? I’m inclined to think that it is possible but I am not familiar with this hardware/software ecosystem.
I thought 3G, 4G, EDGE, GPRS etc are only relating to data? As long and you have an active SIM with a telco, and the towers are the frequency the uConsole supports, you’ll be right for voice only? Maybe that info is a bit old now, maybe all voice to n mobile is now basically voIP? Feeling old. CDMA is dead now right?
@guu if I understand correctly, it might be possible to use a special 3.5mm male-to-male cable (or flywires, internally) to connect main audio and GSM audio, and reroute the bluetooth audio to/from main, so that it reaches GSM?
is it possible to replace the phone modem board with a project board? no information on the schematic on gethub… I would love to install SenseHat type board in it’s place with a lightning detector… best alternative is to package these features in an external build and connect via wifi…
