    Has anyone figured out how to use the I-PAD 3G as a phone?
    I have had a few cases where my i-phone is dead or in use and if I could dial a number on the Pad it would have been quite useful.

    Ipad1 - jailbreak and install Phone-It for iPad from iPhoneIslam. Works great.

    No options for iPad2 other than standard IP telephony apps such as Skype etc. available from the app store.

    I've used Talkatone (in conjunction with Gmail) before. It's not the best when compared to a regular cell phone, but you can use it to call regular phones (or cell phones).

    I know this because I had to call my brother-in-law once when I got a flat tire. But, that's another story... :D

    It is/was a handy, "just in case" app. Free, too. I'm not sure about service if you are outside the USA, but it works a treat IN the US.
