Transfer mobile number to tablet

My fathers phone screen just cracked big time, because of work he can't simply go and get a new phone. However, he does have a tablet that currently has a number. Is there a way to transfer his current mob number to the tablet?

I tried to swap sims but one device is a nano and the other is a micro

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Hi there,
Swapping a SIM card from a mobile phone to a tablet is going to give you issues. Usually the tablet is set up to only use data, but a phone handset is configured to use data+SMS+Voice. Putting a sim in a tablet will usually just have access to mobile data, not calls or SMS.

Some android tablets do have phone accessibility.
Download yourself a manual for the particular model.
