Okay, I solved this issue. This was my first time doing this as well, and being a man of privacy, I kept unchecking the obvious privacy breaching settings, causing the message of pairing to go into a loop... God, Samsung.. Fix your *****. It took me awhile to figure out it was behaving in an endless loop.


DO NOT restore your phone because of this. Have patience, and when it gives the error or stays in a loop, turn off Bluetooth, and try again with pairing the device.

Eventually it will ask you about a mobile number, and it's optional, but my carrier, ATT, charges 10/mo for the feature... which is a crazy fee I will not pay for.

One you get a message for the mobile number, it will ask you to skip or not, and at that point, you should be able to continue without the loop becoming endless.

OMG, sorry for replying 5 million times xD

This website takes too much bandwidth and my internet is slow, and this forum is cursed, so it didn't go to Pg2 when I replied like other forums do.

SOLVED! Open samsung apps, choose Wear, force stop, clear cache. Then open app and go through the steps and will reload all data etc and connect as usual.

None of this worked for my new Samsung S21 Ultra. SIGH. I've wasted over an hour trying everything multiple times.
