Samsung Gear S will have own Plan on Sprint

http://phandroid.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/gear-s-info-1.jpg

the Samsung Gear S will have a special plan on Sprint, and likely any other carrier it heads to once it launches.

As such, you’ll need a plan to tie it to and you have one of two options for achieving that:

  • a special $10 per month “connected device” plan that gives you 1,000 minutes, 1,000 messages and 100MB of data
  • a $10 add-on to a Family Share Pack plan that shares data, minutes and messages with all other devices

The leaked document was also careful to note that the Gear S won’t pull from its own allotment of text, minutes and data while in Bluetooth mode and paired with a smartphone as everything would be going through the smartphone’s line at that point. Sounds par for the course for a standalone smart watch so all we need is an actual arrival date!!

Re: Samsung Gear S will have own Plan on Sprint

The release date has been confirmed for November 7th!!!


Sprint will offer it for $0 down (plus tax) and 24 monthly payments of $16 ($384 excluding taxes). There is also a $10 monthly charge when adding it to the Sprint Family Share Pack. However, they will waive the fee if it’s added to any plan of 20 GB or more.


If this is true I WONT be getting this!!!!

$384 is WAYYYYY overpriced for this watch!

I'm getting the run around about my fear s. I want to connect my smartwatch and I'm being told that there's no sim card available for this watch. This is becoming annoying. Please advise
