    Welcome to the forums. I don't think this is possible; or if it is, there would be so many hoops to jump through that it may not be worth it.

    There is an app where you can link a phone to a tablet using Bluetooth send and receive text messages but I doubt it would be compatible with iPhone.

    If both people are using Hangouts can't you send and receive text online?

    You can send Hangouts messages to each other, if you know the other person's email address (or they yours) to initiate the chat.

    This is where the Hangouts integration for texting has confused people, while you can use Hangouts to send a text, it's not the same as iMessage where those sync across devices.

    The only way to text from the tablet would be to sign up for Google Voice and text using that number. Hangouts can then be set up to be your text client for GV and you can use any device that is signed in to your Google account to send those text messages.

    If you're on Verizon, they have a messenger app that will sync across devices. It's called message+
