Gear S2 - How do I forward calls to my Samsung Gear S2?

Last Update date : 2017.02.03

Call Forwarding

When your mobile device and Gear S2 are connected via Bluetooth, calls to your mobile number will display on both devices and you can answer on either device. However, when your devices are connected remotely (not via Bluetooth), you must turn on Call forwarding to have calls to your mobile device forwarded to your Gear S2. You can take the calls on your Gear S2 from the device itself or through a connected Bluetooth headset.

Important: You can only make a phone call using your Gear S2 only if it is a 3G/4G model (with an embedded SIM card). Not all Gear S2 are 3G/4G compatible. 3G/4G models are more expensive than basic models. If you are not sure, contact the store you purchased the device from. Another possibility is to take a phone call on your smartwatch. If the screen displays “Making call on your phone” then it means that your Gear S3 is NOT a 3G/4G model.

Note: The screens and steps shown below may vary by wireless service provider and your mobile device.
