Re: Will Sprint get the Galaxy Watch?

Did anyone get an update as to when Sprint will support standalone calling? 

 

Also, Best Buy said they don't expect the Sprint Watch until the "unlocked problem" gets fixed. According to them the watch is no different when unlocked but there is some bug that is causing hookup problems. Anyone have info on this or status update?

A software update will allow standalone calling should be released in early 2019.

Any info on why the LTE standalone is not supported on the galaxy watch. Read a post about an update will be coming 2019, really. And why dont they offer the black 42 mm?

Re: Will Sprint get the Galaxy Watch?

Sprint has definetly dropped the ball on this one. LTE not supported as standalone and no black 42mm. Horrible.

Re: Will Sprint get the Galaxy Watch?

because they are still in the process of launching true VoLTE would be my guess. once they have the majority of their main areas covered i can see them kicking an update to allow it to use VoLTE.

Samsungs website is back to only showing t-mobile as a carrier if you buy direct from them. Does this mean bad news for generic unlocked watches working on any carrier?
