Phone Thinks it's my Watch and vice versa

I got my new T-Mobile Gear S2 today. T-Mobile added the line and got me a new phone number. Got the watch set up and synced to my LG Stylo 2 Plus.

When I tested calling them with each other it seems they're very confused. I got:

Phone calls Gear - it goes straight to my phone's voicemail to leave a message. No rings just straight to VM.

Gear calls phone - I get the prompt to my phone's voicemail. Where the phone displays the incoming phone number it's my phone's number *not* the Gear number.

Then new Gear number displays as the correct watch phone number in settings.

I don't know if it's the watch, the phone or something TMO did in the set up which is also why I couldn't decide where to post this.

Any ideas how to correct this?

Thanks!
Deb

UPDATE: I don't know what happened but at this point I can call my watch from my phone ok, but when I try calling my phone from my watch it gives me the prompt to enter my VM password. This is sooooooo weird.
