I'm finally getting text notifications on my android phone (LGV30)... Bought watch Tuesday. Was within hours of taking it back today. Googled everything I could. Thanks to posts from many others, I settled on one last try. I went into my Samsung Gear app within the settings on my phone and selected Storage and then Clear Data. I had to redo everything setting up the watch. I then switched my watch face to Deluxe Free Edition (12 hour), which includes a text widget on the face. I had settled on using the Android Messages app for SMS on my phone . I did all this last night seemingly without success. I put my watch on charger and went to bed. I put watch on this morning to try anything at this point one last time, but was prepared to take it back to Costco because I received a reply to a message I sent to Samsung. They said there is no way to add the text widget and no way to get text messages on a non-Samsung phone. Anyway, I started getting text messages this morning and can see the conversation on the watch. Frustrating to say the least to have to go through this much trouble. Samsung should have the answer by now, not telling users that its not possible.
