    No. Magic Jack requires a USB port. While you can connect USB devices to the iPad using the Camera Connection Kit, only a few standard devices are supported. Magic Jack is not.

    However; there are a number of apps for the iPad that can be used to make phone and video calls to others. Some are free, some cost a bit. Apps that work with Google Voice are probably worth looking into. Whistle Phone also looks interesting. I've heard good things about both.

    I haven't used/tried any of these, since I barely make a dent in my iPhone's plan.

    I came across this thread last month and had a look at Magic Jack, only for US residents which is a shame but there is an app for Magic Jack now. Thought you might be interested Twerppoet as well as the OP

    Thanks. I did search for Magic Jack in the App Store before posting, but could not find anything. Turns out it is one word.

    Thanks for catching that for me, Leelai.
