    How do I disable all phone features? I am strictly using the tablet with Wifi.

    Whats apps can I uninstall that are for the phone?

    Does anyone know how to use the front camera for chat?

    Thanks,

    Howard

    I would also like to know how to disable the phone features. Not that they're causing any problems, I just don't need them taking up space!

    I haven't attempted to do a video chat ... but I did figure out how to take pictures with the front camera! It's simply a menu option ... I felt like a fool once I figured out how easy it was!

    YI too am using my Gtab strictly WiFi and don't need phone. However, if I could tether using Bluetooth I would probably try it!

    You can place the tablet into airplane mode, but you'll have to reenable the wifi afterwards.

    They are currently working on a fix for video chat using Fring, and I believe Qik is too.

    once rooted you can use a program called "root manager" to delete any app and/or service you dont want but BE CAREFUL if you dont know what you are doing. You WILL screw up your tablet by haphazardly deleting programs. I know from experience, but know enough how to get it back up and running. I dont use mine for phone either, and will try to delete a few and let you know whats OK to delete to save space.

    Turning on airplane mode will only shut off the service.

    I wanted a widget to make toggling airplane mode a bit simpler. Tried a couple but they're not killing my TMob connection, only wifi. Airplane mode works fine via the regular menu. Anybody else have this issue or know a widget that definitely works? Thanks.

    I have been using Dazzle and it works real good. I can turn off the radio, put in to airplane mode and keep WiFi on.
