Galaxy Tab A7 2020 and texting/calls


New to the tablet world. I just bought an A7 wifi (not a cellular carrier) and trying to send/receive texts and calls. I figured a work-around for calls using google duo (but need the other party to install duo too, is there another method?) And can't figure out how to send a text via messenger if possible. I used smart switch to sync my tablet to my galaxy s9 phone and worked flawlessly. Now I want to keep same string of texts going on my tablet. 

Is this possible? Any help would be appreciated.

Try going into your Advanced Settings and turn on Call and Message from Other devices. Depending on your phone model and carrier, this feature may not be supported.

I have it on. I tried samsung flow and seems to work only if my s9 phone is on and flow opened on both devices. Not ideal, must be an easier way?

I'm having same problem. VERY frustrating! Turned on call and message from other devices too and made sure logged into Samsung account on both devices. Still fails. Is the fact we both used smart switch causing a problem? I'm at a loss.
