Ah, pardon I thought this was a phone.  Tablets do not make calls the way phones do. 

That tablet was designed to work with Att number sync which allows a device to use the related phone and it’s number to call and text.  This is a carrier feature of ATT and will not work anywhere else.  

You will have to install an app like Skype or google voice to make calls.

You have to trouble shoot with the carrier you’re using.   The phone was made for ATT in the US it may not be compatible with your carrier
