    Just set up a chat program to communicate with him. I would suggest Hangouts but word on the street is that it's going away sometime in the future (but it would be a starting point since it works as long as you have a Google account). A tablet without a phone number (most won't have one since they're typically WiFi-only devices) can't receive text messages.

    Text messages sent to you are sent to your phone number. Make sure you keep your number and he gets a new number. Then just send texts to his new number.
