Answer
You can't....

....officially have only one plan for two devices. However, with a wifi connection a VOIP like Skype or Vonage would allow you to avoid paying for a monthly cellular phone #. You could pay for a wifi connection on the iPad. Let us know what happens.

Answer
I have both devices

And find that I rarely need to use the cellular function of the iPad. I buy it on a monthly basis as, and when, I need to.
I'm using it now, sitting on the beach in NC, watching Hurricane Sandy go on its way up the east coast.

99% of the time I am able to use wi-fi to communicate
