Samsung Galaxy smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches can share calls and text from a smartphone and a single cell plan.
For example, a Galaxy Tab S7 tablet can be setup to receive calls and text from a Galaxy S21 smartphone.
The setup is quick and easy by going to Settings–> Advanced Features and enabling the Call and Text On Other Devices option.
Many other combinations of devices can also be used, including compatible Non-Samsung Android devices and PCs.
A PC can also be setup to send receive calls and text.
A compatible device is needed and a Samsung account needs to be setup for the option to work.
Most newer Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets will have the Call and Text On Other Devices option available.
This includes the Galaxy S10, S20, S21, and more.
Some cellphone carriers may disable this feature and it may be country specific.

Your smartphone should have the feature but does not come up in settings; your cellphone carrier may have disabled it.
The option does not use Bluetooth but works using a Samsung account tied to both devices.
There is also an option to share text and calls with a Windows PC with a very similar setup.
