Yes both have iOS 8 but still, I thought the continuity only worked if your phone was up and running, and then you can answer a call coming to your phone from any of your devices. But my phone was not even running lolDo you have iOS 8? You probably could have continuity mode on or something?
iMpressed.It was facetime app in the iPad that rang, but the call coming was not a facetime call. It's listed as "unknown" caller and just the number appears.
Ok it happened again, I think what's going on is, if your phone is shut off and you receive a GSM call, then your iPad rings and takes down the number trying to reach you. I don't think you can answer using the iPad but at least you know which number tried to call you.
But not absolutely sure this is it.
iPad and Mac, now answering the call.
Sometimes when your iPhone rings, it’s not where you are. Maybe it’s charging in another room. Or it’s buried in your backpack. But your Mac or iPad is sitting right there. Now you can make and receive phone calls on those devices as long as your iPhone running iOS 8 is on the same Wi-Fi network. Incoming calls show the caller’s name, number, and profile picture. Just click or swipe the notification to answer, ignore, or respond with a quick message. And making a phone call from your iPad or Mac is just as easy. Simply tap or click a phone number in Contacts, Calendar, or Safari. It all works with your existing iPhone number, so there’s nothing to set up.
Yeah I know, the weird thing is when this happened my iPhone was restoring. Or maybe it just restored and I didn't notice, so maybe it was up and running. Otherwise it wouldn't make any sense unless Apple directs an inaccessible GSM call to facetime.This is a continuity feature of ios 8. You should be able to answer the call.
From apples site:
I have a blackberry for work, and a BB PlayBook (which I actually quite like). It does the same thing when in 'bridge mode'. The PlayBook will 'ring' if my phone rings, but can't actually answer the call. It's just forwarding the notification. Has been capable of this for at least a year.iMpressed.
Yeah. "Bridge-mode".I have a blackberry for work, and a BB PlayBook (which I actually quite like). It does the same thing when in 'bridge mode'. The PlayBook will 'ring' if my phone rings, but can't actually answer the call. It's just forwarding the notification. Has been capable of this for at least a year.
Settings->Facetime->iPhone Cellular CallsDoes anybody know how to disable this?
You don't need BTLE for the SMS and call relay features. That's only for handoff.Continuity is the most awesome thing about iOS 8 (along with App Extensions, PhotoKit and Touch ID APIs). Can't wait for Yosemite... oh wait, my 2010 MBP doesn't even support BLueooth LE....

Not sure where you're based but you can get a playbook brand new for around £60-£80 depending on the model (mine is the LTE version), because nobody bought them! There's still seems to be plenty of new stock around at fantastic prices if you look around and still want one…I had that same combo for a long time. Nearly two years now. My BB died and was no longer being made so I ended up buying a Galaxy S2 on T-Mobile.
Things haven't been so great on my iOS 8 experience. My iPhone 5 has the Wi-Fi calling feature disabled despite being the same hardware as the iPhone 5C that did.
Also, I'm not sure if my iPad 2 is able take advantage of continuity. Tried texting from my iPad to a friend who has an Android phone. The text turns red.
I sold my old PlayBook and do miss it a bit. Now they have become a tough find in good shape for a fair price.
I loved recording video with it due to the stereo microphones and for a fixed focus camera, video capture on that thing was great and way ahead of the curve with cameras on tablets for it's time.
Great little tablet that never took off since vital features that were not available to users unless they owned a BlackBerry phone in bridge mode.
RIM let it slide too long and the 2.0 firmware update that added those features was after it's reputation was done for. I loved playing Dead Space on it though.
