Receiving Calls

It’s the normal operation that the calls to Gear S are not forwarded to connected mobile device.

Regardless of whether Gear S is connected to mobile device via Bluetooth or not , the calls to Gear S aren’t forwarded to mobile device and it’s one of original device concept of Gear S. Conversely, the calls to Mobile device can be forwarded to Gear S only when mobile device and Gear S are connected via Bluetooth. If connection doesn’t establish, the calls to Mobile device only rings on mobile.

Additionally, Gear S with Nano SIM card can work independently by stand alone mode. When disconnected with mobile device, Gear S can receive the calls by Gear’s itself number if Gear S’s mobile network state is Auto Switch or Always On.

If connected with mobile device, Gear S can receive the calls by Gear’s itself number only on ‘Always On’ state. If Gear S’s mobile network is Auto Switch while connecting to mobile device , Gear S turn off the modem for enhancement of Gear S usage time. As a result, Gear S can’t receive the call or message on Gear.
