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 Call & text on other devices, you can receive calls on your Galaxy tablet as long as the two devices are logged into the same Samsung account. You can also make calls and send messages.
Note: Call & text on other devices currently only works with T-Mobile and Sprint compatible phones.
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. Connection will occur automatically.
Now you can make and answer calls and 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 with Call & text on other devices.
