The text message is sent to your phone, and then you enter that code on the tablet to sync messages between the phone and tablet.  You'll need to set up Messages + on the phone first, I believe.

But my phone and my tablet have different phone numbers?

The tablet phone number is just a way of accounting - it doesn't function as a phone or texting number.  The app on the tablet will sync with your actual phone number.  That's the line that is provisioned for texting.

So what you're saying if that a copy of all the texts to my phone will go

to my tablet?

Yes, that is how Messages+ is intended to work - access to your text messages on the phone, tablet, computer.  If you are trying to use the tablet as a text messaging device on it's own number, separate from the phone number, that's not doable.

I see. Maybe I should have read the manual. Thank you very much for your

patience and assistance.
