Samsung "Call & text on other devices"

Why doesn't this feature work?  Samsung offers a great feature that should work, but doesn't, at least on my Verizon Samsung tablet.  My friend who has the same tablet as I do, Samsung Tab.S6, can use this feature; and depends on it all the time.  The only difference is he has T-mobile.

We are sorry that the feature you want to use on your tablet is not working for you, MKANET2. We do offer a way to text on tablets if you also have a compatible phone that you are using our Message+ app. Here is a link to help give you more information about that service and app https://www.verizon.com/support/how-to-use-verizon-messages-android/#set-up

Thanks for replying.  Messages (Message+) doesn't support making phone calls with my phone number.  It looks like you can only send SMS text messages; which I can already do with Google Messages and Samsung Messages.

It's better just allow Samsung phones to do "Call & text on other devices" instead of forcing us to use inferior Verizon apps.
