So I just purchased a new S6 Lite Tablet (box store) to go with my S10e phone (purchased from Verizon). So I find out I can not use "Call & text on other devices" on Verizon network. You have to use their crappy Verizon Messages app (tried it and it is not seamless at all). Apple devices are able to communicate with each other as designed without the use of Verizon app. Samsung needs to step up and demand Verizon free up their locked features to create a fair playing field. I am going to have to change something either carrier or device brand. So before I return this tablet and buy an iPad (and in the future iPhone) I would like to know if I can unlock the phone? By this I mean if I were to switch to another carrier with my current S10e would this feature then be accessible? It is currently not even in my settings. If not I guess I would have to buy a new phone and we are back to may as well get iPhone on current carrier

Unlocking devices still won't work on the Verizon network. Samsung needs to step up and tell Verizon they can not sell their devices if they do not free up their great features. Apple must have because their devices comunicate with each other without using the crappy Verizon Messenger app. Tough choice switch to Apple like my wife or switch carriers. As much as I hate Apple and Verizon (for holding Samsung features hostage) I may have to stick with them and switch to the dumbphones at least until another carrier offers better coverage in my rural area.
