    Unfortunately, you can't make phone calls on an iPad with 3G network capability. What "cellular data plan" is referring to is the contract that you can have with a network carrier in order to receive a mobile internet signal on an iPad with 3G capability. You can buy a data plan on the Apple Online Store when purchasing an iPad, or go to a carrier shop directly (for example AT&T in the US). The plans vary in price and the amount of mobile data you can get over the course of a month. Although if you have a 3G capable iPad, there are apps available that let you make free calls using your data connection to other Apple devices such as the iPhone and iPod touch.

  • No you can't make phone calls, but you can use it for texting others, surfing the web on the go, and video chatting with people while on a 4G LTE data connection. But, keep in mind these data plans need to be paid for with either 10$ a month, $20 a month and other prices!

    Hope that this was useful to you!
