    On both your phone and tablet, go to settings,tap on advanced features, then turn on the setting " call and text on other devices". Both your phone and galaxy tab must be signed into the same samsung account.

    It used to be a lot easier to find the option when the setting was under connections. Oh,well...

    Update: I just read the fine print, this feature not enabled on Verizon or AT&T phones. @^#&##&; 🤯

    That sucks. It's my favorite feature of the tablet/phone combo. I do wish there was a mechanism to assign a phone to a selected tablet. My hubby and I both have phones and tablets under my Samsung account, but Samaung only allows one phone number to be associated with the other devices on the account. So his tablet only gets my phone calls and messages. Should have registered his phone under a separate account...

    that was one of the things I was looking forward to also but with AT&T it didn't happen... but I managed to do it through the Google messenger using "messages for web". 👍

    Verizon probably has it blocked because they have used their messaging app to handle calls and texts that way for roughly 5 years.

    Just download the newest unlocked operating system from Sammobile and put it on your phone. Then you will still get timely updates on your phone and can use your tablet to call and get messages.
    This is what I always do with my Samsung phones in Verizon.

    Only problem is it can void the warranty.
