    I just got this tablet recently. I have already figured out how to sync texts with my phone. But, since this tablet has its own phone number, can't I set it up to text using that phone number? It came with Verizon Message+. When I try to set it up, it wants to verify the phone number, so it sends a text to that number, but I can't get the text until Message+ is set up. I've tried several other apps, including Facebook Messenger, but I always get stuck trying to verify the number.

    Hi, have you spoken to your service provider about this issue?

    I had the exact same question! Did you ever find a solution?

    Welcome to Android Central! I think SMS requires telephony, which 3G/4G tablets don't have (they're only set up for mobile data). But definitely contact your carrier to see if there's a solution.
