No, even if you got the Sim card slot to work, T-Mobile blacklisted all the IMEI numbers for the Dell tablets. There is a version of Cyanogen/LineageOS that enables phone calls on models with a SIM slot, however it is blocked on T-Mobile's side. You may get lucky and get another carrier to accept calls with the tablet.

So to me that is saying that another carrier might allow it to work on their network.


Correct, this is a possibility. The way to test is to find the version of Cyanogen/Lineage with the Phone app. Unfortunately, I no longer have the tablet to test this theory.
