  1. I wish my iPad had phone capabilities because then I would only need to carry one device. I prefer my iPad over my iPhone any day for every task – except phone calls my iPad can’t make, but that I wish it could.

    1. It surprises me that there are still many who own iPads, and read (and participate in) blogs such as this one, and who aren’t aware of various VoIP solutions available for iOS. A quick google search for “Free VoIP apps for iOS” yielded excellent info right away.

      While Skype may be a popular one, there is Google Voice, with various apps that work with it (Talkatone seems ahead of the pack, then there’s Vtok, and others), as well as other VoIP providers (Whistlephone, iCall…). I have used Talkatone for two years. It is free, Google Voice account is free, it works as expected — making calls, receiving calls, sending / receiving texts (like a mobile phone), all across Wifi or mobile data.

      One thing must be said, though, for ALL VoIP solutions used on mobile devices: they are nowhere nearly as robust and as reliable as mobile voice service. Today’s mobile networks are engineered for extremely low latency and high availability of voice service. Network coverage can be patchy for data service, but is always infinitely more robust and stable for voice calls. Relying only on available data connection (whether 2G, 3G, 4G or WiFi) for voice service means frequent dropped calls, high latency and inconsistent connection. I have tried this (on an Android device, using Sprint’s 3G network), and it just wasn’t worth it.

      Your mileage may vary greatly.
