    Is the Continuity feature of switching phone calls from iPhone to iPad not working? I can't get it to work.

    It works fine for me. Are you logged into the same icloud account on both devices and connected to the same wifi network?

    Yep. Is there a setting that I need to adjust?

    It doesn't work for me either. Does one need to have CloudDrive checked in iCloud settings to make it work?

    Which iPad / phone do you guys have? It doesn't work with all of them.

    Continuity features are available on iPhone 5 or later, iPad (4th generation), iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad mini with Retina display, and iPod touch (5th generation).

    So I can't use it iPad to phone, myself, but when Yosemite comes out I can do this stuff on my MacBook, which is cool.

    michikade is right. It only works on certain ones. Continuity only works works with the devices he's listed, you must be logged into the same icloud account (had nothing to do with iCloud Drive) and on the same exact wifi network for continuity to work.

    Are you logged into your icloud account on both devices? Mine worked right out of the gate once I logged into the same icloud account on the same wifi network and I have the same set up as you curtb.

    Mine works between my iPhone 5 & iPad Air as well. In fact I was a little startled when they started ringing at the same time as I didn't know about Continuity. I am loving iOS 8 so far. Now to get the hubby to pick up the iPhone 6..... 😉

    I have the iPad mini retina and 5c and it doesn't work for me either. I get a warning on my iPad telling me: iPhone calls not available, at the top and under that: Your iPhone is not configured to allow cellular calls using other devices.

    :/

    I just did the power button/home button reset on both devices, and now it works like a charm! Amazing what a reboot will fix!

    Yeah, that didn't work for mine. I still get the same error on my iPad mini with retina.

    Hello everyone.

    I have iPhone 5 and 3rd Gen iPad and I can get it to do the call hand off. It was weird, I got a call on my iphone but my ipad was ringing at the same time. I thought it was a glitch. So then I called myself from my home phone, answered by swiping answer on the iPad and it picked up the call.

    Has anyone else tried it on their 3rd Gen iPad? I know it's a 3rd gen, it has the retina display with the big charger, not the lightning cable.

    OK, there is a setting under FaceTime. It's a toggle for iPhone Cellular Calls. Turn that on and it should work now.

    if a hard reset didnt work, then you may have to wipe the phone and ipad and start clean and set up as a new iphone/ipad. that would be a last resort.

    Thanks for that. I have been trying everything to get the Continuity thing working between my iPhone 4S, iPad (4th gen) and Macbook 2010.

    At first I thought it was the Macbook - a good an excuse to trade Old Faithful in on a new Macbook Air. Now it seems I need a new iPhone too. You just have to admire Apple's marketing stategy!

    On WWDC they were talking about iphone cellular internet connection gets used by your iPad automatically when out and about. Does anyone know how to activate this feature?

    Does bluetooth needs to be turned on in order for Continuity to work? Or just being on the same WiFi will do?

    Having the same issue on my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini w/ Retina. There's no actual continuity between the devices. I've done a reset and everything, but still nothing. I did get Mail app to give me the icon in the bottom left of my iPad when I was using it, but when i tried to open it I receive this error message:

    Continuity-img_0119.jpg

    I've also noticed there's no consistency in the Photos app when I take a photo on one device it does not show up on the other. Also, the Favorites album isn't showing on my iPad. Not sure if it's all related, but just some observations from this morning.

    I have all the settings correct on both my iPhone 5 & iPad Mini Retina - handoff works great, but I cannot make or receive calls from my iPad mini. The phone call screen activates & I get an error message that my iPhone needs to be connected to the same wifi network as my iPad and I know they both are connected. Any ideas?
