    If you're talking about making a phone call, then the answer is no. You can make FaceTime calls to another Apple device, as well as Skype to anyone with a computer.

    As noted above, the iPad is to equipped to make regular calls or SMS but can make VoIP calls and messaging by various apps.

    I use Skype for Ipad to make telephone calls, just download from apple App Store sign up put some money into the account. I telephone land lines and mobiles (which is cheaper than normal way) I have used it from UK to Australia to land lines and mobiles, USA to UK even send Texts to both from Skype , if you have a hotmail email account and sign in at the bottom of the sign in page it will open up all your
    contacts as well.
    You can even use it to pay for Internet access if for instance you are at an airport and your 1/2hour is up, if you forget to log off it will log you off after1/2hour unless you click for more time. This is another app called Skype wifi

    Skype is very good!

    Viber is also quite good for making calls and messaging.....although the recipient must have Viber also.
    I've been using it lately with calls to Europe and its very clear.

    Another alternative is Talkatone, which uses Google Voice over wifi. Calls in both directions to landlines are free in the USA and Canada. We've found it handy on vacations to call ahead for motel reservations (no cellphone).
