    Hi Guys,

    Need some help navigating this new watch. I purchased the LTE version through ATT...didn't do my homework. Since I have a One Plus handset, don't have NumberSync available.

    Sooo...

    Are there any options available to use the GS3 as a phone extension (Calls, SMS) without a Bluetooth connection? Obviously prefer to continue using my primary number.

    -Read some things about Google Voice/Hangouts...Voice stopped supporting SMS
    -Facebook Messenger, doesn't seem to allow replies on the watch

    Still running old Tizen version if it makes any difference. Thanks!

    Google Voice works fine with the Gear S3. Once your number is ported to GV, calls can be forwarded to multiple devices. Ditto with messages. When someone calls or texts my number, it goes to my watch, tablet, computer, and cellphone (which I typically no longer carry).

    Thanks for the info. Do the message notifications appear in the native gear S3 app with the ability to quick reply, reply, etc?
