So here's my overall experience. I signed up when the beta first went live and had issues from the start. I was syncing my primary number with the Gear S3. I had already bought the watch prior to the beta program. I registered like the tutorial stated and nothing ever happened. My watch never synced with my primary line. I believe I posted my issue in this forum and was told a ticket had been created and I should receive some communication as to when my issue was resolved. I never heard back from anyone so I called into T-mobile and was connected with the dedicated digits beta team. They stated that my initial submission of my info was never recorded when I signed up, ie watch info. The rep deleted my initial submission and told me to resign up as before. This was probably a month into me signing up for the program... After that I started to receive the text messages saying welcome to the program etc. My watch finally registered and I was able to use it without it being connected to my phone and others would see my primary number when I would call and text them and not the number that was originally assigned to my watch.
It works good now and I appreciate all the work that has been done getting this program off the ground and working. I can only imaging the number to tickets that have been created... I do have a couple of questions. Do I need to keep the wearable line active since my primary number is being duplicated? Also when I sent texts from my watch the recipient gets duplicate texts from me. Is there some sort of configuration I should be following in order for this not to happen?
