Line2 today introduced its popular app to iPad for adding a phone line to the iPad, merging calls, texts and voicemails into on app. Line2 adds a fully-featured phone line to the iPad that can place and receive calls and carrier-grade text messages over the device's data connections (Wi-Fi or 3G). If the iPad does not have a data connection, calls can be automatically forwarded to up to six other phones so that customers can ensure that they never miss an important call. Here is more info on this new iPad app:
With Line2 you can place calls using a wired headset, Bluetooth headset (on iPad 2 only), or over the iPad?s speakerphone. Line2, combined with the iPad?s powerful built-in speakers and microphone, makes for an amazing on-the-go business tool for conference calls with multiple people in the room.
The app is packed with advanced calling features, including full caller ID support, the ability to juggle multiple calls, visual voicemail, voicemail by email, call waiting, call transfer, and conferences for up to 20 people. You can even multitask while using Line2 and perform other tasks while on a call, or receive calls while engaged in other activities on the iPad.
Line2?s Wi-Fi capabilities allow international travelers to place and receive calls while overseas without incurring any additional charges. Using Line2, calls to any number back home will be free, as will calls to other Line2 users, wherever they are worldwide. Line2?s Wi-Fi call quality is also better than traditional cellular quality, and Wi-Fi calls between two Line2 customers use 16-kHz HD audio for crystal clear sound quality that is stunning to experience.

After the trial, service costs $9.95/month for the basic plan with unlimited US/Canada calling and texting, or $99.50 for a one year pre-paid plan.
