You can make video calls via Facetime or Skype, audio calls too or send messages via iMessage but no cellular communication.

All iPads don't support calls or texts over cellular. You might have to look for other options like Galaxy Tab 3 or Asus Fonepad if both internet and cellular calls are very important to you.

Sorry, iPads are for messaging and calling over internet (VoIP) only. Cellular SMS or calls are not supported. You can however get these features from Android or Windows 8 based slates.


Allthhough you can use messenger to text the phone number then click on number and make phone call over your iphone. All answer phone call's over the Ipad Air go through your iphone . Kind of wish you could use your Ipad  air to make call's since you can get around it to do so anyways'. Just saying??
