I remember reading about a app called Tablet talk. Basically from what I understand you connect the devices through Bluetooth or WiFi (maybe either) and you can get you calls and text sent to you tablet (assuming you close enough for a connection).

A quick search turned this up (apparently there is more than one app):

Mighty text is also great for what you want. It will sheet you phonecalls and even allow you to ext from all of your devices and your PC.

I'd recommend MightText as well, but with their privacy service being such they can share your info with certain groups when they want, kills it for me.

I bought Tablet Talk a couple days ago and haven't looked back. I mean, it is a secure BT or Wifi connection just between the devices you activate, no outside party or servers involved. It's really quick, has quick popup, calling through BT headset, etc. I find it to be fantastic for what I need/want.

Do you have to have bluetooth head set to talk?

Where did you here that? What private info is shared with who and how do you know your other one doesn't?

Also, are you just a user or are you connected with this one you suggested?

I've been using MightText for a while now and love it.

I probably use it as much from the browser as I do from my tablet.

Excellent app!

Didn't hear anything. Read through MightyText's quite creepy privacy policy. http://mightytext.net/privacy When you start using a "free" service, you become the service.

The one I talk about wouldn't be able to as it is a simple "ad-hocish" type network between the two devices. No internet, no servers, no data, just devices talking to each other. http://www.tablettalkapp.com/faq/

I am fully just a user mate who digs the app I suggested. Use it all the time here at home and at my job. Sorry if I sound like I may be selling it, once again I just really enjoy the privacy factor of it.

Wouldn't having Google voice on both devices solve your problem? I have Google voice linked to my HTC One as my voicemail client, and I can see all my sms messages, missed calls and voicemails on both devices, although the ui leaves much to be desired. Haven't tried to make any calls on my N7 though so I can't speak on that one.
