I recently got 2 Sprint Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 tablets and was told at the Sprint store that I would be able to send and receive texts to the tablet's phone number. I have searched high and low and can not find an app on the stock device that will allow this. I have found multiple tutorials on sending texts with the Tab and Tab 2 devices and the app is called "Messaging" but the app is not on either of my devices and I can't find where to download it. I wonder why such a useful tool and one the Sprint store pitched to me to make the sale is not included.
Is anyone else having issues finding a way to text on their Galaxy Tab 3 ???
The Tab 3 does not support native text messaging. You can download a 3rd party text application. The original Tab 7" did support text, however the Tab 2 did not support text.
I apologize that you were given incorrect information at the store.
This doesn't do it the way the store rep promised you but it would solve your need for the most part...see this post; let me know if the link doesn't get you there
