    That'll be tricky, but possible using Messages+. HOWEVER, you would need a second line for the S5 with voice and data. She would have a second phone number. That might complicate things for you. BUT if this is OK, and the device is supported by Messages+, then you could do what you want with texting on both phones (through the app on the S5, NOT the stock app, so you couldn't use Textra except for the SIM number in the phone).
    Verizon Messaging allows you to make phone calls from linked devices but not flip phones

    That's it. I'm not going to try to make her happy with her Techniphobic problem. I'll just let her muddle along with that relic of a phone of hers. Thanks for all your help and patience with me.

    I moved up to a Pixel 3 but still have a Samsung Galaxy S5. I want to give it to my wife. She has a flip phone and for whatever reason, she refuses to move to a smartphone. She's Techniphobic yet she grabs my phone to do text messages and ask questions. I'm thinking of taking the S5, changing the phone number to hers in Textra and Google, and uninstalling all the other apps. What do you think?
    Um what do you mean "change the phone number to here in Textra and Google"?

    In order for her to be able to send texts from her number on that phone, her active SIM needs to be in that phone.

    So I'm told. I'm closing this issue and forgetting my idea.

    I'd love to but she won't let me near the phone for just that reason. I'll just make it more of a hassle for her to use my Pixel. She's using my phone more and more. She'll get tired of it. It's amazing that the phone still works after 10 years. Thanks for understanding.
