    Hello Everybody,
    I am new to this forum.
    Can you please help me to find if I can transfer calls from iPhone to iPad via Bluetooth.

    When I am working on iPad and when my iPhone is close to the Bluetooth limits, I would like to at-least receive calls transferred from my iPhone to iPad via Bluetooth, wifi or even 3G.
    This will lean by using a single device when they are together.

    Any idea or comments?

    The iPad does not have native GSM call functionality - so the only way to receive or make calls on the iPad is to use Skype and VoIP. As far as I am aware there is no app available that would enable you to transfer a call received on an iPhone to an iPad using either Bluetooth, WiFi or 3G.

    Resurrecting this post. I'm installing an iPad in my truck as the head unit and I would like to answer iphone calls and use hands free on the ipad. Has anyone seen anything in the 11 months since this thread died?

    I cannot figure out how an iPad can be a head unit? Wouldn't it need to connect to an amp at least? What you really need is a normal head unit with built-in Bluetooth. I don't believe that the iPad or iPhone have the necessary Bluetooth protocols to receive and audio feed and call control another device like a Bluetooth car kit or headset can. They are obviously geared to go the other way, ie. parse out the audio or phone call to a Bluetooth receiver.

    I hope you find a solution, because that would be interesting to see!
