I bought an iPad for school and have been enjoying using iMessage and (especially) FaceTime, and I have recently acquired the new iPhone. So I'm wondering if there is a way I could add my iPhone's number to my iPad to receive iMessages and take FaceTime calls sent to that number, rather than having to rely on my phone 24/7 for these features.



iMessage and FaceTime are linked to your Apple ID so you will need to add your Apple ID to the device, not your phone number.

If you send a message from the iPad it will use the Apple ID, so someone can reply to your email address, if they send a message to your phone number it will only go to your phone.
