Agree wholeheartedly. More to the point what is their plan for the folks that have purchased this device and have been paying for the required plan that doesn't provide service???
I just said the hell with them. I was with Sprint 17 yrs, and I just dropped them to go to AT&T. I have a Note 9 with a AT&T bought Galaxy watch, and I works as a Standalone Perfectly, only problem is getting the Number Sync to work well, its a little spotty, but Standalone is great.
VoLTE is available in some areas now and will continue to roll out across the US.
Like the Apple watch, it needs to be paired with a device to work as a standalone. When VoLTE is in your area you will be able to make and receive calls from your watch.
