Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

I'm sorry, the iPad doesn't support phone calls (via carrier network) like your mobile phone. If you have the iPad with SIM supported model, then that is only for accessing internet. This is how Apple designed it.

However, there are some solutions to make phone calls from iPad using internet or WiFi. You can setup Facetime (from Settings > Facetime) to make calls to other Apple users.

You can use Skype or Google Voice to make phone calls from iPad. Open App Store, search Skype and/or Google Voice. Install them and use them to make calls from iPad.

If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please don't hesitate to ask.

Note : This is not my final answer. I strive to provide Excellent service or 5 star service. If you feel you've received anything less or if you are not satisfied or if my solutions didn't work, please don't rate me bad or poor or ok. Instead, please let me know and I will try my best to help you until you are fully satisfied or the issue is resolved.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
