The iPad is not a phone, so no.  hence the name iPAD, not iPHONE.

    as of iOS 8 you can now but I would like to see a numeric key pad on the iPad and the computer MacBook or iMac in FaceTime because while making a cellular call from the computers FaceTime  or iPad FaceTime  which you can do now....example is if you need to Press 1 for English 2 for Spanish etc. etc. You have no ability to do it.... Only direct person-to-person calls can you dial out...I LOVE the feature so much....great when phone is downstairs and call comes through

    Facetime does not make phone calls. It transmits voice over the internet: VOIP.  I admit the distinction might not be obvious in practice, but facetime is not telephony.
