When i activated my tablet, i was told i can put the sim into a phone and if i need to make call or send text, i am able to do so with additional per per use costs. $1 per minute for call for example.
But i cannot make or receive calls.

Yep, this is something that is relatively new.
This applies to all of our newer data-only plans released after March 12th. 2019. We're simplifying things. These plans are now strictly for data use only. All calling and outgoing SMS is blocked.
Users will still be able to receive SMS at no extra charge.
@snowweiwei1, What device are you using? Does rebooting your device change anything?
I have the same issue that woof mentioned. Without the ability to receive texts, I can't even properly install your own fido app on my tablet. In the beginning of the thread, a fido rep mentioned that data only plans have the ability to receive texts only. So this has been changed? Any possibility of adding that function back?
Thanks for the quick reply.
I understand calls and outgoing text not available.
I'm only looking for incoming texts so that I can register to apps like Fido myaccount and WhatsApp.. which requires codes received as texts
My device is new Samsung galaxy 8
