    You can download the free Skype app, to talk or video call anyone else with Skype. If the person you want to call also has an Apple device ie, Touch, iPad or iPhone, then you can communicate through FaceTime. Both options are free over wifi.

    I believe the post starter is looking for a way of using ipad as a cell phone (or just any telephone) to actually call people. I suspect the answer is no way, but would like to hear if there is way.

    Wouldn't that be great though! I sortof wish we could do like the VoIP type calling using those companies out there that do it over PCs. Or even if I was able to use the cellular service on my iPad when you activate the 3G/4G monthly rate. I only need a cell for emergencies, so even the pay as you go stuff never gets used up by us before it expires.

    Thank you Todur, I am surprising why it is not absolutely free although we have 3G SIM card inside, if you search for an application or calling free, they ask you for money, what is a tricky solution by Apple?!

    The netTALK app offers free wifi calls to anywhere in the US and Canada, with some limits on total minutes per call and per month. It works fine using just the iPad mic and speaker.

    Lanny, I just installed/used the netTALK to call my friend from my ipad and it worked! (except I still don't know how to adjust mic?) Just wonder if I can get a number for my ipad so people can call me to my ipad? And I saw no where the co states limits on total minutes per call and per month? Can you verify? Thanks
