Yes, I am doing that now with a T-Mobile Frontier Lte smartwatch....The watch is linked to my Verizon Samsung smartphone with the Samsung Gear app. When someone calls me using my Verizon number the call is forwarded to my watch, so is my text messages. I can view my emails, listen to my music and have access to other apps on the watch. I can make calls from the watch and the receiver will see my Verizon phone number in the caller id. Of course, if the smartphone is not within the Bluetooth range of the watch, the watch operates as a standalone.
However, it seems like my Verizon smartphone is using more data. I'm not totally certain of that being I been out of town for the holidays and not using Wi-Fi as much I usually do. It don't matter about the data on the watch because T-mobile gives unlimited data which is a plus instead of using Verizon. I.m going to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of having both T-Mobile and Verizon instead of just having all of my devices on Verizon. So far, I am pleased with how the smartwatch operates, very cool.
I agreed with all of you that Verizon is not respect their customer at all by not give us any information about samsung gear s3 watch. I'm going to move to AT&T with all my Family members 6 devices when we finish the payment. That will be a promised. I'm not really happy to do it but very upset and force to do it.
I think Verizon is playing it safe and waiting for the thinner Gear S4 watch. Critics saying things like "its bulkiness and weight are seen to be the device's down fall, Daily Star pointed out" may have Verizon worried it will be stuck with a lot of S3 inventory if released now. They still have S2 available.
Idk what verizon is thinking but this watch has been out for too long from
others to be considered new when and if Verizon releases it. I'm gonna wait
for something better.
You've encapsulated the dynamics of the fast-paced, high-flying world of tech in your observation. That watch borders on being stale already. I have the Frontier Bluetooth version; nice gadget. I wear it, use it (Samsung Pay and some other cool things) and charge it at night. There will be another 'next big thing' along very shortly.
Oh please, there is always going to be something on the horizon. A lot of
people want and like this watch. The watch is seriously not that big. I've
had regular watches that size 6 years ago. I highly doubt that is why
verizon is not selling it. They do have the s2 but why would I spend $300
on the s2 and already be behind the times? Not to mention be further behind
the times in "6 months" when the s4 is coming out? If they'd drop it to
$150 or $99 I'd consider it. I am pretty much stuck now though because in
the position I'm in I'm not going to purchase one until February now and if
the s4 really comes out soon I might as well wait. Maybe that was what you
were trying to say.
Just chatted with Samsung and got yet another different response from a company rep. The Samsung rep said the carriers approach Samsung about selling their products and that Verizon was late to the game and ATT and TMobile were first in line. Whether or not that's true who knows.
