Phone calls on an iPad

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

I have an iPad Air, which has been up­graded to iOS 8.1. I un­der­stand that I can use my Vo­da­phone SIM to make calls and send texts on the iPad now. How are they charged? Does it just use up some of my data al­lowance? Mar­tine Hat­ton iPads can’t do th­ese things di­rectly. Cel­lu­lar mod­els only use the mo­bile net­work to get on­line. You may be think­ing of a Con­ti­nu­ity fea­ture in iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, which routes calls (and with iOS 8.1, texts too) through an iPhone. Both de­vices must be signed in to the same iCloud ac­count and be con­nected to the same Wi-Fi net­work. Charges come out of the iPhone’s plan.
