    With a sim card with phone number and a jailbreak you can, not sure without jailbreak.

    If no sim card appstore have few text/calling app you can use over wifi

    The app netTALK will let you call any landline number in the USA and Canada for free over wifi. No jailbreak or data account necessary. People can't call you, however, and there are limits on minutes of free calling per month. Still, it's been handy for making motel reservations on trips with my wifi-only iPad (I don't have a cell phone, and I was out of my home country at the time anyway). There are probably other apps with similar capabilities. Every McDonald's has free wifi you can access from the parking lot.

    bonzy, Thanks for informing with heywire app. It's exactly what I am looking for cause I don't have a cell phone and I am in us. However, I have downloaded and installed twice in my ipad and both didn't let me log-in (I registered and received 2 heywire free numbers). Just wonder how to type in the correct heywire number (+1234xxxxxxx )? Do I have to type the '+' and the '1'? Or there is something wrong with the app? Any help on just getting 'log-in' heywire app? Thanks

    I downloaded the Heywire app to both my iPhone and iPad to see if I could get it to text. This was 30 minutes ago and I have not gotten anywhere with the app. In fact, I get this message (on both devices):

    I get this message whether I am on WiFi or 4G (on my phone). Nothing works - the app won't even open so that I can sign up for a free phone number.

    I say all this because maybe there is something wrong at HeyWire's end. Maybe their servers are down or there is something else wrong. All I can suggest at this time is to set the issue aside and maybe return to it tomorrow. At least, that is what I am going to do...

    Have you looked into the app Talkatone? After you get a [free] phone number from Google, you can use Talkatone to send texts with that Google number (you can even make calls). I used it a number of times before I got my iPhone - when I only had the iPad.

    Just an idea while you try to resolve this HeyWire issue.

    Hi, Marilyn. Thanks so much about bringing me to the Talkatone while still stuck with heywire for not even able to login. Now I got a real (cell phone) number (from google) with my local area code that enabled me to make/receive all calls/text in us and Canada free from my mac/home phone (though setting up google acc with voice acc and gmail acc was a pain of a%#). And then I installed the TaT on my ipad. With quite a painful process of changing settings in my google voice acc, I was finally set to claim using a virtual cell phone through my ipad for free! And I can safely give up HW now.

    I have skype, but you can only make/receive calls via email for free. You have to pay for calling phone numbers (like a cell phone). Now I have Talkatone on my ipad that I can call/receive/text any number (phone/cell phone) in us and canada free. It's big difference!

    Yay! Glad you got it to work for you. As I said, I've used it and I quite liked it. Very handy.

    I just started using Talkatone and Google Voice to make calls with wireless only. Pretty cool. That is the only bad thing; you gotta be connected to wireless. Tango works good too. Facetime with wireless only. My 4G part of the iPad has never been activated since I bought it - it just an off-the-shelf WalMart iPad.

    Not so true: when you use mac with internet connection (wire or wireless), you can setup google voice to make/receive calls through home phone (or cell phone?) as well as text by mac; no TaT needed. I think a big advantage from TaT is that using it with ipad makes ipad become a virtual wireless cell phone (for free).
