Correct, you can’t send regular SMS messages with an iPad unless you also have 
an iPhone on the same WiFi network or you are using some sort of app. I believe 
in the US google Voice would allow you to use your iPad much like a phone.

Yes, if you have an iPhone and an iPad, there is a setting that will allow you 
to receive calls on the iPad if the iPhone is in range.
You can also double tap on a contact phone number on the iPad and make a call, 
again if the iPhone is in range.
But, without an iPhone, you would use FaceTime or Skype.
As for text messages, you can text using your email address to other Apple 
device owners with an iPad, but I do not think you can text to a non-Apple 
device. That one I'm not sure of, so take that with a grain of salt.

I say that because when I get a phone call my iPad will sometimes ring. But 
yes, if you just have an iPad you will have to use Facetime to call.

Hi Maria,

Thank you very much for your input.  I'm going to assume that if she can email 
with this iPad, she'll be able to send text messages with it as well.  Am I 
correct with this assumption?  Thanks again.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi, the iPad does have dictation and email. I recommend she gets the iPad Mini 
4. I have the mini 2, but it doesn't have all the somewhat recent hardware. I 
think she will need her phone with her to make phone calls.

Subject: iPad Questions

Hi All,

I have absolutely no knowledge about iPads, so here goes.  A friend is blind 
with hand dexterity problems, & was told by others not to get the large iPad, 
but to get the midsize or small iPad.  From doing a little research you can get 
these iPads with WiFi or with WiFi & cellular.  If we get her one with WiFi & 
celular will she be able to make phone calls with the iPad?  Do the mini iPads 
have dictation for texting & emailing like the iPhones?  When we buy her this 
iPad does it matter who we buy it from, i.e, should we buy it from her cell 
carrier, Apple or other wise...?  All input will be gratefully accepted & 
greatly appreciated.  Thank y'all very much.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!
