    I was wondering if anyone else was having this problem ever since I paired the watch the S2 always rings when i receive a call on my phone. I have everything set to vibrate but it still rings. To make it even weirder if I call the watch directly it will only vibrate. Anyone else come across this issue. Everything worked fine on my S7E?

    Try unpairing the device then reconnect it. See if that helps.

    Thanks, I've tried that. I've factory reset the watch and so did T-Mobile a little while ago and it is still happening. The store thinks it's the Note needing some type of fix. I wonder if i'm the only having this problem.

    Has anyone else noticed this problem, I actually connected the S2 to my old S7E and it stopped but when I reconnected it to the Note the problem started up again.

    I have the same issue and it is driving me nuts. Was working fine with my S6, but now I have the Note 7 it rings even though everything on the watch is set to vibrate.

    Same thing here. Gear S2 3G and Note 7 on VZW. It was fine with Note 4.

    Yeah it looks like its happening a lot. I found another thread on xda about it as well. Must be a software issue that Samsung needs to hear about.

    I am having the same problem! Really annoying! It is also overriding my vehicle's Bluetooth and using the phones ringtone through Bluetooth.

    Well I found out if you set the ringtone on the Note to silent it will stop but then you have to set your ringtone everytime you actually want the phone to ring.

    I posted over in the Gear forum earlier, curious if any of you have seen the post, or had the problem?

    Mine is working just fine on AT&T. I quit with the watch ringer as I couldn't really hear it and turned it off on the watch and it always just vibrates. I had it connected to my edge+ before the note came in. Worked just fine on it too. Had to do a reset on the watch to pair it with the note. Also it is using at&t's number sync to pair it with the phone number and not the baked in Samsung number forwarding software.
    Something cool that I'm not sure if it's the phone or the watch or a combination of both but my car now plays the set ring tone of the phone when a cal comes in instead of the highly annoying and ear piercing standard ring ring it used to do. I really like that change.

    I'm guessing that your issue is a communication error between watch and phone with the call forwarding.

    Hey all, I know this is a slightly different thread, but didn't find a thread with people doing some troubleshooting on the basic Gear setups, etc. I have a VZW Note 5 and a Gear S2 3G for VZW as well. Overall great experience with both, but 95% of my calendar events don't sync to the Gear.

    I have updated both phone and watch, did a light reset and hard reset on watch, installed and uninstalled Gear manager, paired and unpaired device two or three times, even had Samsung try to do support on it mobile, but they quite literally gave up after taking about three hours of my time (kudos to them though for sticking with it that long!) after not really suggesting anything I hadn't already tried or considered.

    Now it's to the point where I either have to send it in to Samsung (where they said they would charge for the repair if they found any damage on it... kind of out of my control once the device is in the mail), or drive forty miles to LA to see if Samsung support can fix it in person, which honestly I don't have the time for.

    Before I resort to either of these, do any of you brilliant fellow Samsung users have any advice or tips that you can recommend? I'll still search through other threads in the forum to see if there's similar threads, but so far I have yet to find this issue. Thanks in advance!

    What happens with my duo is I have my watch ringtone set on wine glass but if my phone rings instead of the watch ringing wine glass, like it did with my Note 4, it rings the song that is playing on my phone, so I hear the same song on two devices a second apart. So annoying. Not sure how to stop this from happening.

    I'm also having this problem. It's annoying, but the only way I've been able to get around this is to put my phone in do not disturb and set to custom so it allows notifications. No ringing and the watch vibrates. I have it set up on a schedule so during work hours my watch is the only notification I get. Not ideal, but it's better than the embarrassment of your wrist ringing during a meeting lol

    I am going to contact Samsung as soon as I have an hour to spend with a rep. I will let you all know what I learn after I make my call.

    I was able to get it to work but both the ringer AND media in the phone need to be on vibrate. Basically what I did was open the sound setting on my phone and was messing with the settings while calling my phone from another phone until I found the right mixture. This is what worked for me. Now my phone and watch vibrate. I would suggest doing what I did until you find the right mixture.

    If I take it off vibrate on my phone they both ring. Hope this helps.

    Same problem here. I can't stop the watch from ringing. Plus can't purchase anything like watch faces ETC from Samsung with the Note 7.

    Should just be a short term thing. I'm sure they will push out an update shortly. Nothing to freak out about. Until then just keep your phone on vibrate.
