Sounds right.  Did you set up your message account on the phone first?  (You need to do that)

Then sign in and verify on the tablet.

How to send and receive messages on a tablet. 

Download the app,   Enter your  cell phone text number to sync.   Then a text with a confirmation code will be sent to your phone, confirm on the tablet, and it will sync messages with your phone.  The tablet cannot send text messages from it's number; it has to be synced with your cell phone number.
