Gear S3 Classic - Phone calls direct from watch.

SOLVED
Apprentice

Hello

i have bought a Gear S3 Classic and paired it to my Xperia XZ.

All works brilliantly except:

Never thought I'd be interested in the ***** Tracy feature but as it's there I wanted to try it. 

Unfortunately I can't get it to dial out.

if I ring my mobile I can only accept the call on watch but must use the phone to speak etc.

So I'm trying to figure out if it is a phone compatibility issue or not.

Is anyone in U.K. and can make direct phone calls from S3 paired with any phone?

 

thank you

Hi
Thank you.
Issue fixed itself without intervention somehow.
I can now have phone calls directly from watch if I so choose.
However I'm not sure how to carry on conversation on phone once began on watch.

Glad you got it working! 

 

To transfer a call back to the phone is easy. During the call on the watch,  there will be an on screen icon shaped like a smartphone which you tap to transfer.

I have a Huawei Mate 9 connected to my Gear S3 and it works flawlessly both sending and receiving calls. So I am guessing there is some incompatibility with your Sony phone. I know that some phones can be fussy with bluetooth connections.
