My tablet Galaxy Tab S8+ supports SIM with calling facility. But I can't carry the tablet all the time so I wanted to receive the tablet's call in phone/mobile (M14 5G). The existing feature only supports to receive the mobile's call in the tablet but I can't receive tablet's call in my phone.  There is any solution for this ?

Some thoughts on your request:

I assume that the tablet and phone have separate numbers, yes?

If that is the case, use call forwarding to forward the tablet calls to your cellphone (or any other number).

Or, get a Skype number (or a simular service) and it will ring on all devices with the Skype app. I get free Skype calling with my 365 subscription. The Skype number is an additional $39 annually.

@randhir4605 See this Samsung article about making and receiving calls from the tablet. -> https://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00083152/#:~:text=With%20the%20Call%20%26%20text%20on,Y...

The tablet uses the active service on the connected phone to make the calls.

@LongHiker  I think you haven't read my post properly or you were unable to understand. Please check my question again. I am asking to receive tablet's call in mobile. that is opposite functionality that samsung provides. I am looking solutionfor that.

@randhir4605 Sorry, but I understand your question. The carrier's SIM for a tablet does indeed have a phone number but it provides a data connection only.

Yes, In tablet and phone both having seperate numbers.

Call forwarding is the good option, I accepted and I know that. 

I was just checking If there is any solution from samsung side. 

Thanks,

Is the tablet's OS Windows 10 or 11? I have Microsoft's 'Link to Windows' on my new s23 Ultra (And prior to this on my s10+), laptop and PC, the latter both running Win 11 and I can answer cellphone calls on all three devices. Of course, neither my PC or laptop have a SIM card, so I am unsure if this feature would work in your situation, but I thought I would toss out the idea.

Tablet and Phone both are Android based device.

I also use Microsoft's "Link to Windows". Your phone and Widows based tablet / laptop needs to connected via Bluetooth, then only you will receive the call in tablet/laptop.

But in Samsung's  'call and text from other device' feature, no need to connect via Bluetooth, both device needs internet connection. You can answer call even your phone is not near to you.
