    Don't know if this has already posted here, but here's a nice link on how to setup Gear S without a Samsung phone. Note, however, that some functionality won't be available without Galaxy phone. .

    AWESOME! Just did this with my AT&T phone and it deleted the entire contact list that was accidently loaded by the AT&T rep when he set this up originally as a standalone device for me (being used as my only cell phone) with one SIM card and phone number ported over from another carrier.

    KUDOS to you -rellimllc- for posting this!!!

    My guess is this will allow others to just swap the SIM card out of their phone and into the Gear S to turn the Gear S into a phone with their single SIM card phone number. Will someone please try this and post up the result? Thanks.

    The topic is not about use it standalone but use it without a Samsung phone. There is no advantage either way but not every one has a Samsung phone. But by default, Gear Manager only works on Samsung phones.

    About 1/2 the monthly cost! (In my case $30/mo. total for Gear & Samsung phone) And no candy bar in your pocket. Not a bad savings and you can still use the Gear and phone together linked by BT if you want just like the prior gear.

    Example: At AT&T and T-Mobile you are required to have a $45-$50/mo. SIM in your V4.3 phone and $5-$10/mo. for the Gear; a total of $50-$60/mo.

    Using this Reset setup procedure with Your contact list loaded onto your SIM card will load the contact list onto the Gear S. Sweet!
