I asked my question in

 

But it looks like the issue has been marked as solved without a clear answer. So starting a new topic.

If I use my phone sim in my tablet, can i use the tablet as my phone. I understand about the separate data line for tablet, that is not what I’m asking though. Data works with my phone sim in the tablet, but voice calls are failing, need quick help please. My phone is broken and not able to get a new phone at this time, i want to use my tablet as phone, please help. Thanks!

Quick answer is no since tablets have their own data plans.

From other threads it's how the data is provisioned. Tmobile provisions tablet data differently than the phones.

I have a MS Surface that I can use as a phone but it has to be connected to my phone using an app.
