    From what I read it seems 3G only, so ever drop to standard GSM coverage and you won't be able to call.

    Thought it would be 4G available too? That's what they did say not long ago.

    From what I've seen the models outside the US have full phone functionality.

    Three however will block the use of a phone Sim in a tablet so if they're identifying the note 8.0 as a tablet, not a phone they may disconnect the data.

    Not sure what three are classing it as. With the plans it's only with a data Sim but their systems may allow it as a phone.

    If you put a One Plan Sim in anything but a phone, they cut data off from what I've read to stop people using unlimited data in 3g dongles, computers or tablets.
