Samsung tablet S7 FE celluar model phone calls and txt messages

Hi 

I have samsung tablet S7 FE cellular model and I bought it from US brought to out of states.

Recently I opened a number get a new sim card and tried to make call from this tablet but when I tab 'Call' it shows me AT&T sign-in page not dial.

How can I make calls from this tablet? I am sure I opened a new number for data, call and txt message.

Also my device doesn't have default message app, how can I send and get txt message with this tablet?

Typically on AT&T, LTE-capable tablets are assigned a data-only plan.  They can make calls using apps designed to do so using data (i.e. VOIP apps), but not the built-in phone app and the cellular voice service, nor will SMS function.

The phone number assigned to the tablet is more of an account number than anything else.
