Hi can anyone answer my query?
Can you make calls and txt on a galaxy watch3 ( im on o2 network) when your phone(galaxy s9) is switched off?
I was under the impression when I got my watch from o2 sales person that you can ! But this seems to conflict with other information I have read!?
And yes I have tried to me a call etc but it doesn't seem to work!!.
so am I doing something wrong? Or wad I mislead in the information I was given when I purchased the watch!?
Any help or information is appreciated!.

Hi game booth , yes it all works fine as you described when my phone is turned on! ,I think I've just been a bit naive and misled with information in-store and on Internet about how this watch functions in standalone mode.
I thought this watch 3 lte was able to function as a true standalone device but this is not the case ! This watch does still need the connected phone to be powered on . Dont get me wrong still a great watch etc ,but I do wish samsung would make information a bit clearer to retailers selling there devices and those who are not tech savvy!!!! .thanks again gamebooth for your reply and help .
