If you use a tablet download the tabletsms app on your tablet and desksms on your phone and bam you send/receive texts via your phone so it always shows up exactly as if you sent it from the phone [and yes your replies even show up on phone just like they would]. You can also use GTalk on a computer [or phone] to do the same thing I love that at my job.
All it requires is that both your phone and tablet have a working data connection of any kind [yes even using bluetooth tether in jellybean works fine]. This also applies if you say leave your phone at home cause you forgot it on the charger. As long as both devices have a network connection anywhere that allows internet access you will have access to get and send your texts through your phone.
DeskSMS does charge like a whole $5 - $7 a year and it does give a full 2 week free trial [unhampered]. Also, even has a home screen widget so you can easily toggle how it handles your messages [do you want it to send to GTalk and your email and the browser extension or do you just want one or a combo of those? It gives a toggle for each and you turn on and off each of the 3 types of routing at will.
