    Left iPhone at home - can i use my iPad? 6th Jul 17 at 5:03 AM
    Hi

    Just realised I've left home without my iPhone and I switched it off before I went to bed so it's offline....and I'm away for the next few days

    I have my iPad with me which is on a data plan - can I at least view calls when they come through. At least I can ring them back on the work land line.

    In the past I've noticed that when someone phones me I can see the call coming on the iPad as well but can't seem to do it at the moment as the iPhone is switched off?

    Any work arounds?

    Thanks

    If I could get a spare iPhone which work sometimes have spares, can I stick my iPad sim into the phone?

    The iPad SIM may have a data plan but may not have a call plan. If that's the case then it probably won't have a phone number so won't be able to receive calls.

    Just enjoy a few days of peace and quiet.

    The world won't end because you forgot your phone.

    When iPhone is switched on it's possible to accept phone calls on Mac/iPod Touch/iPad when 'Calls from iPhone' when you're signed into the same iCloud account and using the same Wi-Fi network.

    It's possible to receive calls when iPhone is powered off but that seems to be limited to select U.S carriers at the moment.
