Staying connected with a wireless phone is always a great option. It would be nice if a tablet can be used as a wireless phone, unfortunately tablets can not be used as a wireless phone. Do you have a cell phone with us? Is something currently wrong with the cell phone if you have one? Please let us know, we can give you options with getting a working wireless phone.

Skype.

Connect it to a mobile hotspot device like a VZW Jetpack and get wireless internet access anywhere you go.  However if you are homebound I assume you are within a normal wireless internet connection and would be fine without an additional cellular connection.

I haven't read or heard of anyone being able to use a Tablet as wireless device.  Our tablets are assigned telephone numbers but I think it's just for accounting purposes as I haven't found any other use for it.

Google Voice number will work on a tablet using the Hangouts Dialer app.  But, that's another number and issue in itself.
