Apple Watch

Can I switch my Apple Watch to be my main phone on my cell phone line? I have a work phone and don’t want to carry two phones. I have an Apple Watch series 3 with cellular and would like to drop my phone line to save money, but still have the ability to receive calls, and texts on my watch. Is this possible?

From the terms of the Apple Watch on "Watch must be synced with an HD-voice activated iPhone on the same AT&T postpaid wireless account." The mobile number assigned to the Apple Watch is only for billing purposes so you can't use it as your primary number.
