Iphone 4S Ios 9.3.5

We have a new iphone 6. It seems to be able to let my ipadmini 2 pick up calls and messages. However, we've been trying to get our iphone 4S (no sim card) to pick up calls as well.
I can't find any setting that would work that

We did try to pair the phones - but they are both lost - that circle just goes round and round

Uh, no sim card equals no phone capability. Thus no way can you pick up calls.

Not sure an iPhone 4S is even capable of same due to no software capability to participate in that process. I use my iPhone 4S for music only. My iPhone 8 Plus of course does all this.

Try this:

Go into Settings > Cellular (or Phone) > Calls on Other Devices.

You probably have to be signed into the same iCloud account.

It's possible that the 4S does not have a recent enough operating system.

I can pick up calls on my Mac and another phone signed in to the same iCloud. If I had an iPad, that would work too.

Apple explains it better:

Turn on Wi-Fi calling:
On your iPad or iPod touch: Go to Settings > FaceTime, then turn on FaceTime and Calls from iPhone. If you’re asked, turn on Wi-Fi calling.
On your Mac: Open FaceTime, then choose FaceTime > Preferences > Settings. Select “Calls from iPhone.” If an Upgrade to Wi-Fi Calling button appears, click it, then follow the instructions.
Note: If you enable Wi-Fi Calling, emergency calls may be made over Wi-Fi, and your device’s location information may be used for emergency calls to aid response efforts, regardless of whether you enable Location Services. Some carriers may use the address you registered with the carrier when signing up for Wi-Fi Calling as your location.
Make or receive a Wi-Fi call on your iPad, iPod touch, or Mac
Make a call: Tap or click a phone number in Contacts, Calendar, FaceTime, Messages, Spotlight, or Safari. Or open FaceTime, enter a contact or phone number, then tap the FaceTime Audio button.
Note: If you make a call from another device by relaying it through your iPhone with Dual SIM, the call is made using your default voice line.
Receive a call: Swipe or click the notification to answer, ignore, or respond with a quick message.
