Ok so it's unfortunate that some carriers would remove this feature . This is an apk I know because I took it out of my s7 plus tablet and tried to install it into my at&t branded note 10 plus. Unfortunately it did not install . So samsung wanted this in the phone . I think samsung can just put a working apk of call and text from other devices in the galaxy store. Problem would be solved . It's ridiculous carriers take this out if the phone . I know they all have their own services they want you to use but they only work on certain devices . So samsung this would be a great holiday gift for all.
