    iPads can make calls via iPhones using continuity/handoff or VoIP apps like Skype... And why a locked one?

    As far as I know, none of the iPads are locked to any carrier.

    No iPad is locked to certain carriers. They all originally come with a universal SIM card that can be used on any carrier if purchased through Apple. If you purchase it through your cellphone company they will give you one of their sim cards but it is easily interchangeable. Apple does not want to allow iPads to be locked to a carrier in order to make them useable no matter how you choose to use it.

    Is this also true for an iPad Mini 3? If bought one which was not suppose to be locked, but it does not appear to work with a SIM from Consumer Cellular. When I call the number displayed when I try to connect, I get an AT&T operator who wants to sign me up for a new account. When I use the SIM that came with it, I'm only able to subscribe 24 hr, 30 day, or other automatic renewal date services.😕
