If you don't plan one using the LTE, I would exchange it for the BT version, if possible. You can still make calls and send/receive texts, your phone just has to be nearby and connected via BT. Or talk to your carrier and have the phone line terminated. Or check the Wear app to disconnect the LTE, if possible, or put the watch in airplane mode.

Their repair center is a joke in my experience.

But their water detection forensics teams are top notch.

Should have exchanged for a new one. Mine is working flawlessly for what I do.

I understand that you have a separate phone number for the watch and that the sms settings may be control by the carrier?
