    Hi i have the ipad 32GB wifi + 3G prorded. Can you use the Ipad with 3G as a phone as well?. If you can use it has a phone im going to do a trigger happy TV 21st century style lol.

    Im not bothered if you carnt use it as a phone but it be a bonus if you could.

    "whistle phone" (in the apple app store) seems to be "the app" for free WiFi, or 3G calls on the iPad. I have not tried it though.

    Just downloaded the whistle phone app and signed up.tried a few test calls and it seems to work fine. You do have to sit through a few seconds of ads but it's free so I think it is worth it. iPad wifi no 3G

    Have been playing around with it for a while and an FYI the app needs to be open to receive a call. Might be obvious but I was hoping that somehow it might notify you otherwise.

    I also just got it and made an out-going call and got a couple of calls on it. It's great to have this ability on the iPad...it's so modern!

    I don't remember giving them anything more than basic sign-up info. (You know you can always make stuff up, right?)
