Do you know that you are no need to buy an iPhone to make calls if you had an iPad? Yes, you can make phone calls from iPad just like you make calls from your iPhone.

With these apps, you can make and receive phone calls and SMS messages on the iPad. What's more, you can download apps for free and the apps also allow you to make free calls to the people who use the same apps. However, if you want to make calls outside or send SMS messages to real phones, you need to pay for some credits.

Otherwise, you need to use the speakerphone constantly, which will make your conversation heard by all the people around you and also it is inconvenient to always use the speakerphones to make or receive calls. Apple earphones may be your best choice and it concludes a microphone or something like Moshi handset works very well, which will allow you to make calls conveniently and with no hassle.
