I've seen a few people posting about this. I recently made the jump myself. Why, would you ask, would you get rid of your iPhone and use an ipad mini instead? Money. Would it work for everyone? No. I am not a very social person. I talk to friends for about 10 minutes per day, my wife for about 10 minutes per week. I do not rely upon my phone for work. The only reasons I had an iPhone were for the apps - navigation, kindle, games, music, videos, radio, etc. I looked at my latest phone bill and I was appalled. Why spend 80 bucks a month for what I use it for when 95% of the time I could use my ipad mini for free? How does it work? You need an ipad or ipad mini with cellular data. I don't make a ton of calls, but I want to be able to if I'm stranded on the side of the road. You also need a google voice number that you can get for free via a google account. Finally you need a VoIP app. I downloaded talkatone for free. Finally, get a data plan. I joined my mother and laws share data plan for only $10 per month! $750+ savings yearly. Anyone else do this or considering it? Any tips or questions?
