I spent over 5 hours total between in Verizon store as well as Verizon & Samsung online tech support trying to activate Samsung Watch to Galaxy Z Flip unlocked phone on Verizon network. While it syncs ok via Bluetooth, it does not sync via their LTE network. Apparantly it's so new that Verizon firmware doesn't allow for number sharing on Z Flip yet. So I either have to return watch now or wait (indefinitely) until Verizon updates their firmware to allow for number sharing on Z Flip. Not happy after almost $2k later at this point
So far, I love the phone. Hope durability-wise its sustainable. Just really frustrated Samsung Watch doesn't sync on Verizon's LTE network yet, only syncs via bluetooth. So can't use the watch if phone isn't nearby. Which defeats the purpose of having full capability w/the more expensive LTE watch version.
Hi @DM_LA_SF ,
From my understanding if you purchase an LTE version of the watch and if your phone is unlocked then you cannot number sync the device, it only can connect through bluetooth not on stand alone LTE. Only reason being is the phone has to be a carrier locked device not unlocked.
