Make calls and send messages from your new Galaxy tablet
Don't you hate it when calls start coming in once you’re snuggled up in bed, away from your phone? With the Call & text on other devices feature, you can make and receive calls on your tablet as long as it's signed into the same Samsung account as your phone. You can also send messages.
Note: Call & text on other devices currently does not work with Verizon and AT&T phones, and may not be available on all models on other carriers.
Set up Call & text on other devices
To make calls and send messages on your other device, you'll need to add the same Samsung account to both your phone and your tablet. Next, on both devices, navigate to Settings and search for and select Call & text on other devices. Turn the feature on by tapping the switch. The connection will occur automatically.
Now you can make and answer calls or send messages on your tablet.
Note: You can transfer all your messages from your phone to your tablet using Smart Switch.
Change the settings for Call & text on other devices
After you turn on Call & text on other devices, you can adjust the available settings, such as choosing how calls and messages will be synced. Your phone is considered the main device; it's where you'll find the settings for Call & text on other devices. From Settings, search for and select Call & text on other devices.
From here, you can change the settings for Call & text on other devices:
Touch and hold the main device to select the network type that calls and messages will sync over. You can choose from Wi-Fi and mobile networks or Wi-Fi only.
Under Registered devices, tap the switch next to the desired device to choose which registered devices sync your messages and calls.
Touch and hold a registered device, and then tap Remove to unregister the device from Call & text on other devices.
