How to make unlimited calls with an iPad?
Have you ever needed to make a call somewhere, but realised you only brought an iPad with you? Do you wish to find out how to make unlimited calls with a mere tablet? Well, look no further: it is possible and even easy to do! This article will teach you how to make an unlimited amount of calls with your iPad in a few simple steps.
Softphones play a large role on iPads, more so than on iPhones or smartphones. Indeed, while mobiles and smartphones can make calls by traditional means, the iPad cannot; to make calls with an iPad, one must use a VoIP service instead.
As with smartphones, making VoIP calls on your iPad requires a stable internet connection and a service package from VoIP provider. In most cases, such a plan will cover both smartphones and tablets. The rest is quite simple: all you need to do is download your provider’s softphone app and make the call (as with VoIP services, most VoIP apps are compatible with both smartphones and tablets).
To make an unlimited amount of calls, you need only chose the right package. Most providers offer plans which, in turn, offer unlimited local calls. And if you or your boss often work internationally—if you’re often stuck making long-distance calls—VoIP providers have got you covered. Most of them offer plans with unlimited international calls (either Canada-US or anywhere at) to fit any such needs you may have.
The iPad also offers a host two big advantages over the iPhone and other smartphones:
- The iPad has a much larger screen than the iPhone. This makes video calls much more visible.
- The size of the screen also allows you to see video calls clearly from a distance. You can therefore place the iPad on a table to have a video conversation while moving around.
The iPad can obviously not make standard calls, and so it is all the more dependent on softphones. With a VoIP plan and a compatible softphone app, however, the iPad can suddenly act as a mobile phone. With such features on your iPad, you’ll always be able to make calls, wherever your heart may take you.
