Here's how you turn the feature on: Skype is the most popular way to place Internet calls, and unlike Face Time, it isn't restricted to people using an i OS device.
Skype on the i Pad is a relatively simple process, though you will need to download the Skype app.
These calls are absolutely free, so even if you are using your i Phone, you won't be using your minutes.
You can even receive calls on Face Time by having people 'dial' the email address associated with your Apple ID.
On the device that you want to connect, go to Settings Bluetooth and stay on that screen.
Then on your Mac or PC, follow the manufacturer directions to set up a Bluetooth network connection.
Then verify the Wi-Fi password and name of the phone.
Stay on this screen until you’ve connected your other device to the Wi-Fi network.
It might be a little big to consider even the i Pad Mini as a replacement for your cell phone, but then again, with smartphones getting larger, perhaps the i Pad Mini is really where we are headed.
Face Time uses your Apple ID to place phone calls to anyone who also has an Apple ID, which is anyone who owns an i Phone, i Pad, i Pod Touch or Mac computer.
And if you don't want to video conference, you can tap the 'audio' tab to place a 'regular' phone call.
If other devices have joined your Personal Hotspot using Wi-Fi, you can use only cellular data to connect to the Internet from the host device.
Use these steps to connect: Personal Hotspot and make sure that it's on.
