    I agree with you but I don't want to use my iPad for a phone app unless I can multitask at the same time.. To me, what's the point? My cell phone does just fine and dandy
    You assume all of us have cell phone's. So for others this would be something we could use in a pinch. Of course you would need a blue-tooth adapter, unless you want to use speaker pad

    I'm interested in using my iPad as a phone. I'd love to point my G-Voice to it. But it's limited now. I cant LNP my existing busienss line to skype, it cant accept 'pushed' calls. Of course the first complaint (LNP) is a skype complaint, but push is massive for me. I'd like to wear a BT headset for music/phone. A comfortable headset that would receive calls even IF it powered down. ALSO, I need to run background 'things' while the phone call is going on.

    Give me that I'd shed my cellphone. In fact it's one of the reasons I got the pad. I'm waiting 'patiently'.

    Whistlephone worked so so for me. It was garbled at times but crystal clear at other times. Good for emergency calls I guess. Thanks for the info!

    Cathie my hope is that the iPad will be leveraged to better take advantage is VoIP and SIP binding! I have big hopes for OS 4.0 in this area. But the concept is proven, now on to better application!

    Did everyone try to turn their macbooks into phones as well? If you need to make portable voice calls they invented something that caught on in the late 80's for that. They named it the cell phone.
