Well sorta ...

  • You can use Skype to create a VoIP call
  • You can use FaceTime to create a video/voice call
  • Depending on your carrier you can make a tunneled call

In all of these you are not creating an analog 3G call which is what Tom is referring to. These are LTE digital connections. The iPad does not offer GSM voice services.

Apple intro'd voice over LTE with the iPhone 6 I don't know if that is possible in the iPad. So that maybe an option as well. Update: VoLTE is not possible with the iPad

I think he meant the calls that are billed onto the SIM card. It is not possible because ipad is not a phone. All the hardwares and softwares are present on iPad cellular models to allow GSM/3G/VoLTE carrier based calls but apple simply chooses to lock them out. Instead only FaceTime/call through iPhone or third party VoIP calls are allowed. Just because Apple doesn't want the iPad to become iPhone.

Well.. its the best way to describe it as It's not TCP/IP based ;-} In a voice call you are using a A to D conversion to then send ATM packets across the air. In the case of VoIP the voice call is converted like before (A to D) then placed into a TCP packet then into an IP stream across the air inside the ATM packets.

No, but you can make VoIP calls by Skype. Apple does not allow iPad make calls except VoIP.

I have FaceTime on my iPad air2 with iOS 9.x.

I have added few contacts out of which few of them have apple device while other have HTC Samsung Sony. I could only make calls to apple device only.

FaceTime is an Apple App, you can only interact with someone who has the FaceTime app (sadly only Apple products). But, you could use Skype with someone who has a Skype client app running on their system.
