Active watch 2 number sync and data issues

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Ever since the update on July 26th I am having issues with getting numbersync to connect and play music through spotify through the LTE. It worked great up until yesterday and now it's pretty much a bluetooth watch that can call and text from it's own number. Is this happening to anyone else? Because this watch has constantly seemed to be having issues with it features it seems.

@userUicodvv3rJ - thank you, this fixed my watch.  Here's the exact steps that I did.

 

On the watch:

1.) Go to Settings

2.) Go to Connections

3.) Go to Mobile Networks

4.) Scroll down to Access Point Names and tap it

5.) Go to Internet connection

6.) Click Create

7.) For "Name" use: Phone

8.) For "APN" use: Phone

9.) Click Save

10.) Click the radio button next to "Phone" to use this connection instead of Nextgenphone.

 

I repeated steps 5-10 to create an MMS connection as well.

 

After doing these steps, I was successfully able to access cellular data on my watch with Wifi off, and bluetooth disconnected.  I was also able to successfully configure NumberSync after using these steps to getting data working.

I am having the same problem.  It worked fine until the update and now will not connect.

Same issue here.

 

Galaxy Watch Active2 LTE with a Galaxy Note 8 - both devices purchased directly with AT&T.

 

Active2 watch received update yesterday and now NumberSync does not work. I keep getting an error message "Mobile network unavailable" everytime I try to go through the watch menu attempting to enable NumberSync.

Update:

 

After all day troubleshooting with AT&T over the phone and also inside my local store today it seems it's not simply a NumberSync issue but rather the watch itself does not have a mobile data connection at all. The phone line function is fine and the watch can receive calls but there is no internet connection at all; hence why I keep getting the error "Mobile network unavailable".

 

Eventually I had to call Samsung to initiate a warranty service request since my watch was purchased less than a year ago.

I had a feeling it was something with the watch just because of the fact that you can still do phone calls and texts through it. Thank you for the clarification. I hate calling at&t so I know I appreciate the info. Let me know how the warranty service goes and if it fixes it. Mine is still under a year so I may to that route too.

Update 08/05/2020: Samsung repair received my watch and I just now got an email confirmation that my watch is "fixed" and it's been sent back to me. Apparently the Samsung repair ticket indicates the solution as "REPLACED PBA". (I have no idea what PBA means.)

 

I could have sworn it was due to the recent software update since a lot of other people are having the same issue. I could be wrong with the whole blaming it on the software update but I have a feeling I'm not wrong...

Thank you for the follow up! Good that they repaired something because that means something was definitely wrong. I believe PBA is its board assembly. I don't think your wrong about the update doing something either but, I do wonder if it jacked up all of our watches board assembly.

If you don't mind let me know when you get the watch and if it's truly fixed because then I will go the same route. Again Thank you for your follow up.

Yes, thank you!!

 

I agree, PBA is probably either board assembly or board antenna.

 

Please let us know if Numbersyn successfully works again - I will also follow your lead Smiley Happy

I just left the ATT store, guess I should've read this first. Wondering if Samsung plans to fix this anytime soon?? Paying for a watch that I can't use at full functionality is extremely irritating!!!
