New text message alert sounds do not go through Apple Watch

    Testing multi-line per device scenario using iPhone with paired Apple watch.

     

    Normally when the iPhone is locked, alerts are sent to the Apple Watch, with the watch producing a sound.  However, when a new text message arrives on my virtual number, the alert sounds on the iPhone.  I can still see the message on my watch after twisting my wrist.

     

    As an additional issue, text message sent to the virtual number take a long time to arrive, and most of the time seem to be out of sequence as well.
