Make calls and send messages from your new Galaxy tablet

Girl answering phone call on 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.

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:
