You can't make calls from the tablet without numbersync..  also it can't be removed.

@J.haggi96

It isnt preventing you from using to make calls, it just cannot enable calling unless you have it set up on ATT with a compatible phone.  The only way any tablet makes calls is with a 3rd party app.  Like Skype, Viber, Google voice, or number sync.  Number sync is specifically for ATT customers and won’t work on another carrier. 

(The following is included after all posts to save typing) I don’t work for AT&T. My replies are based on experience and reading content available on the website. Our answers are honest, but not always appreciated. If you posted personal information, please edit and remove.

Re: How to disable at&t numbersync on tablet

I have Google Voice installed on my AT&T unlocked tablet but I am unable to make or receive calls, only text messages. It recognized my non-AT&T sim card but I could not receive or make calls either, although data was working. Any suggestions?

Re: How to disable at&t numbersync on tablet

Thank you, I will look into that. So a tablet can't make phone calls even with a sim card?

No as the number assigned to the tablet on almost all carriers is data only

Re: How to disable at&t numbersync on tablet

I have the latest tablet and drive for UBER. When I tried to hit contact (phone icon) in the UBER app, it defaulted to the idiotic NUMBER SYNC. (I give credit to my ATT manager for figuring this out and fixing it. I won't tell you which store for fear of reprisal against him)

 

SOLUTION: 

Download GOOGLE VOICE for your TAB or Phone. Set up a account using ANY number that is provided on the screen. When you launch the G-Voice application select ALLOW for every option in order to set it as a DEFAULT. 

 

RESULT: Now when you click the phone icon , the voice app will popup, show your google icon for your account, tap the account icon and you will now see the actual number to dial. Go to your cell phone and dial the number on the screen. 

 

MONTHS of this crap and someone actually solved the problem.. Thanks MIKE!

Another solution would be to disable the at&t numbersync in the application manager, if you don't see it try showing the system apps and then disable it. You'd need to replace the dial pad with an app and it should work. Good luck Smiley Happy
