We don't have final answers, but for now the answer is you will indeed get to keep your number.
You will likely be able to change numbers, however we expect it to be similar to current number policy which includes a fee, and the number is randomly generated!
Thanks, Lauren. Appreciate the information.
Lauren: do you know when the Beta is scheduled to end?
On a similar note, will our duplicate SIMs continue to work?
Don't see why your SIM will stop working. Now if don't keep Digits after Beta you might need to change out SIM or put your old one back to change the phone number back.
Just to give you all a sense of the plan for after the beta...
- You'll be given a choice if you want to keep the extra DIGITS that we've created for you. (e.g. the new phone number for the virtual line). If you choose to keep your new DIGITS, you'll of course get to keep the number associated with it.
- You'll be given a choice if you want to keep the routing numbers we've created for you (e.g. the duplicate SIM for your primary number).
If you choice to keep either 1 or 2 (or both) then we'll convert you over to whatever the production plan is for that line type and whatever the monthly recurring charge is for the line type, once the transition period has expired.
Any of the items that you choose to keep, will continue to work with no interruptions and no need to make any changes to your account or getting new SIMs and the like.
If you choose not to keep any of the features, the SIM and the lines will simply go inactive on your account.
If you have a Gear S2 or S3 and you choose not to keep the routing numbers for it, we will revert those devices back to the original numbers for your wearable plan.
Hope that helps to clarify.
Gear S3 doesn't have a 'routing number'. Perhaps that's why I'm having issues with it not using my main number when disconnected from a phone?
Also, I'm not sure I like the concept of 'inactive numbers' being left on/in my account once the beta is concluded.
Things have gotten rather complicated in there recently...
