    (a) If VOIP is good enough then why do you have a cellular plan for your cell phone and not stick with VOIP on it?

    (b) If only cell phone is to be used for calls then why are you suggesting VOIP app for iPad?

    (c) If VOIP for iPad DOES makes sense then why celular call isn't?!

    iPad calls does not come to substiture phones. However, if you are sitting at the balcony and have the iPad on your lap, then it would be easier to answear from it instead of searching for the phone or requiring to take it with you.

    Phones will still be used when iPad is too big for some activities (such as jogging or going out etc. ). But if we are already taking the iPad with us then why cary a phone as well. no need for it.
    I don't call from iPad, but I know there's a free app that works because a co-worker uses it. If suggesting it so people can save some money instead of spending 20 bucks doesn't make sense to you, OK.

    It makes no sense because one would be far more limitted depending on wifi because you can only call ppl who has VOIP app, and/or you can only call when you have wifi at reach.

    That free app lets you make calls via wi-fi or 3G.

    right. however, it requires either both sides to have a VOIP app OR, google voice account which is not supported all over the world. so, a real celular calls is simply more flexible.

    Sure, and it's good for people to know there's free stuff so they can take advantage if they can and like, especially if doesn't come with the possible complications of jailbreaking.

    Maybe some of you don't know this but there's a free phone app called Whistle that works w/ o jailbreaking. Works with iPads and 4 g Touches.

    This is so awesome that I can use my iPad instead of paying for Phone Service. Are there any big disadvantages to using the ipad as my principle cell phone?

    I wouldn't want to do. iPad is too big to be a phone. Maybe in an emergency if the cell phone was not available.

    Apple don't put full features of iPhone in iPad. If you ask WHY the answer is obvious.. iPad is not a phone. iPad have a sim slot but you can't make call using its mobile number or even sending an sms. Same as samsung tablet 10.1. May the antenna of tablets is different from the phone. You need to buy a phone.
