Making 3G calls with iPad

submitted on January 31, 2010 by redsoxrokk in "Products / Gadgets"
LA Times reports that Apple has confirmed that it is now allowing the iPhone and newly released iPad to make voice over IP (VOIP) calls over AT&T's 3G cellular network.

"We revised our Program License Agreement in conjunction with our updated Software Development Kit for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad Apps," wrote an Apple spokesperson.
Skype reportedly has a 3G-enabled version of their app ready to submit once they get final clarification from Apple. In the meanwhile, Fring has already enabled Skype calls over 3G in their application.

This also means that new iPad users will be able to make outgoing phone calls with just the 3G data plan. An unlimited 3G data plan for the iPad will cost $30/month.LA Times reports that Apple has confirmed that it is now allowing the iPhone and newly released iPad to make voice over IP (VOIP) calls over AT&T's 3G cellular network.

    It also has a built in microphone, so you won't have to be buying a new headset. Thanks Apple.

      I think you can plug in earphones, and talk into the mic. (hearing out of the earphones)

      I'm not sure if the mic would work if headphones are connected or not honestly. Think of an iPhone do you see people who have just standard headphones being used for the audio of the call but using the mic on the phone to capture their audio? I guess its possible, but I don't think I've ever seen it.

      HouTex it has a headphone jack so I would assume it can use Apples headphones with mic and remote.
