Hii

Using a Chromebook with a SIM card slot, can I also use it as a standalone smartphone using the appropriate Chrome OS extensions and Android apps?

Thanks

Bye

No.

Pretty easy since you haven't done or found this on the Internet.

How come it's not possible to do this?

Didn't write that.

Your question writes "can I" and since you didn't find such then you can't.

This doesn't mean it's not possible. Hope this clears that up.

Also, just because something is possible does not mean there is a ready to use product available.

curious

what frequency range do cellphones operate on? Not talking for bluetooth or wifi use, but as dialing cellphone towers.

Turns out there are many ranges now.

It's turned into a real problem as cell phone buyers learn there are many ranges and try to use an "International" model here which does work but the buyer "discovers" that the speed is a bit less because the range the international models may have are "one size fits all."

That discussion is a rabbit hole that I might write about a little then bail out with "go ask google i think she'll know."

Said buyer usually is an accomplished complainer that without fail will write or use the entitled catch phrases such as "they should" or "I deserve."
