The text should be sent to the phone you want to sync messaging on almost immediately, within a few minutes at most.

Download and install Messages + on the phone and the tablet; the phone won't need any other action.  The tablet will ask the phone number you want to sync with - enter the number and the text will be sent to the phone as confirmation that you own or have access to the phone and providing a bit of security.  The 5 or 6 digit access code or confirmation code or whatever it's called comes in a text to the phone, and you can then enter it into the tablet to complete the sync process.
