    With DIGITS, the calls, messages AND data are counted to your phone. So your watch usage will always show 0 because everything goes through the alternative number that is tied to your phone. This applies to BT or standalone.
    Are you saying that the Digits number can't be tied to the watch? So what if I have an S3 on T-Mobile and my phone with Verizon? The S3 would have Digits and send calls and texts (cross carrier) to my phone. Wouldn't the watch be the master, since it's the only device under T-Mobile control?

    It's been working flawlessly for me. The only reason I may dump it is that I wasn't able to switch to the new taxes included plan without jumping through hoops, because of the DIGITS number.

    Anyone else have that issue?

    So you're saying your phone is on Verizon, but the watch is TMO? I'm not sure you can use DIGITS with your Verizon phone. My understanding is that your phone must be TMO since it's the main device mating up to your other devices. DIGITS is a TMO only service, and you phone must have a TMO number and SIM, if I'm not mistaken. You need to call TMO Customer Service to find out the facts.

    In T-Mobile's intro video, they stated Digits was capable of working with devices on other networks. This could be useful in situations where T-Mobile's network wasn't good enough for a primary device, but sufficient for secondary devices. So the primary number would be assigned to a secondary device on T-Mobile, but calls would still ring to the primary device on a different carrier.

    In theory it should work, I'm just wandering whether someone has done it. Its not a problem for me, I'm a Google Voice user. But I am interested in keeping abreast of Digits development and the other carriers efforts to allow us to share one number across multiple devices.

    Working great for me. If was using call forwarding from the Gear App at first, but it was a poor solution because the app had to be active when call forwarding was taking place, and it would keep my phone screen on. Secondly, when you reduced the Tmobile forwarding time to the minimum 5 seconds, it would disable voice mail.

    Now everything works great, and the Frontier rings at the exact same time as my phone.

    So when I activate/enroll in digits - so I disable the call forwarding function from the gear app?

    Also what other setting changes are recommended, either on the gear app or the settings on the S3 itself to make digits work properly and flawlessly. Thanks

    Yes you no longer need the Gear App to forward calls because all calls will now ring on phone and watch at the same time.(when Bluetooth is not connected) Nothing else is really needed. T-MOBILE has a helpful Digits department if you need assistance.
