    What exactly do you want to do?

     

    Direct Pairing for file transfer cannot be done with iDevices.

     

    Certain Apps can do it, but its up to the App to establish the connection. 

     

    Perhaps if you tell us why you want to pair them we can provide more specific help.

    What are you trying to do with these two devices?

    Via Bluetooth (Settings App > Bluetooth).

    This is not correct. You can't directly pair iDevices via Bluetooth as the pairing is not supported by the Bluetooth profiles in iPhones or iPads with other iPhones or iPads.

    I would like to have the same applications as my iPhone : phone and Internet access w/o purchasing another plan on my iPad. Is this possible?

    This is not pairing.

     

    To get the same Applications on your iPad as on your Phone, you will need to use the same Apple ID on the iPad, and then enable automatic downloads.

    You can also sync the iPad to the same computer as the iPhone or setup the new iPad from a backup form the Phone to get everything  that is compatible with the iPad from the iPhone onto it.

    For the Internet Access, if its a Wifi only iPad it can only use a Wifi connection to get on the internet, this is indpeendent of any cellular servide your phone has. If its a Wifi + Cellular version it can use a Wifi network or a Cellular network. However it would require its own Sim card and plan. Some Cellular providers offer packaged deals for more than one device. You would still need to contact your Cellular provider to find out about their plans.

     

    You can also share your Phone's internet with the iPad if the phone has the Hotspot feature and the cellular carrier provides the feature as well.

    Yep - my bad. TOTALLY misread the post. That's what I get for multi-tasking first thing after lunch.

    I'm not sure I understand the problem now?

     

    You answer your phone as you would normally.

     

    For facetime, you need some type of internet connection. Be it one you share from the phone, or a Wifi network near you. These are independent things.

     

    You can use the Same Apple ID on both devices. Calls will come in too both for Facetime, but you can answer wherever you want.
