Do I need permission from my carrier (mint mobile)?

Will it show up as a second line which I must pay for?

@Members_ookk1XT You can not make a Tablet act as a telephone. You can pair your Tablet with a mobile and then you can handle calls and text from the tablet.

Thank you! One more question. Will I lose my pairing if I take the tablet on a road trip and leave the phone at home?

They've never been apart😉.

@Members_ookk1XT "Will I lose my pairing if I take the tablet on a road trip and leave the phone at home?"

Well, no but the pairing only works if you are within Bluetooth range of the phone. It may also work if they are both on the same Wifi network (I haven't confirmed that) but out of Bluetooth range.

When you come back within range, the connection will reengage where it left off.

If you have an LTE tablet you  can get a connected device plan with Mint (I assume, I know nothing about them) which will provide mobile data to the tablet.  At that point you can use messaging and voip apps for communications.
