Calling & Texting from the LTE Galaxy Tab S7

Last Update date : Oct 14. 2021

There are a few different ways of calling and texting your contacts on your LTE variant Galaxy Tab S7 - either you can use Call & Text on Other Devices which requires your Samsung account to be linked to your Galaxy phone and Tab, or if you have inserted an active nano SIM card into your device you can solely send text messages and answer calls from that number. Follow the below guide for more information on calling and texting your contacts via a nano SIM on your LTE variant Tab S7.

Please Note: This guide is designed for Australian variant Galaxy devices, if you have an international device and require further support click here to get in touch with your Samsung subsidiary. 

Prior to following the below guide ensure that you have correctly inserted your nano SIM card into your Galaxy Tab S7, check out our guide Tab S7: Device Layout & Functions for step-by-step instructions.
