Gear S2 - NumberSync Unavailable
Hey Guys -
After tons of research, I made my decision a couple of weeks ago and purchased a new HTC One A9 and Samsung Gear S2. I have been really happy with the hardware I choose so far, but unfortunately not so much with the service. Before posting, I searched around and saw similar issues, but not exactly like mine plus wanted to add my comments in, too.
Around Christmas, I received a notification that Numbersync was now available and asked if I'd like to enable it. I did and followed all instructions to connect my S2 to my account. After about 5 minutes, it was enabled. 5 minutes later, it said it was disconnected and currently unavailable. I figured that ATT was just working on it.
Since then, I've tried connecting to it a few times by:
- Going to Settings on S2
- Choosing Connections / NumberSync
- Changing NumberSync from Off to On
Once I do this, the option spins for 5 - 10 minutes and never does anything. I've tried restarting the watch prior to doing this and get the same result.
Today, I logged into my ATT account and went to the S2 / Manage NumberSync section where I saw NumberSync was currently switched "Off". I switched it to On and it turned green. About a minute later on my S2, I could see it was starting to enable and showed a message about bluetooth being disabled, but then I got the same "NumberSync is Unavavailble message - how frustrating!!
Also - can I not use bluetooth / get my notifications when numbersync is on / enabled???
I alive out in a rural area, but have 3 bars on my phone, but have tried it at work in the middle of Nashville where there's full coverage, too. I've considered trying to disconnect it from my account and reconfigure, but thought I'd post first.
What's the issue here? Thanks
