Number Sync. What is it?
Number Sync allows you to leave your phone behind and use your Apple Watch to talk, text, and make calls. Setting this up is very simple! We have provided some steps below. Set it up and enjoy!.
The Apple Watch has an AT&T telephone number and associated rate plan and will appear on your monthly bill. Note, the watch telephone number cannot be used for voice, data or text messaging from the watch. Please remember to complete NumberSync set-up to use your watch on the AT&T cellular network with your iPhone number. With NumberSync active, calls and messages using your watch will display your AT&T iPhone telephone number.
To sync up your Apple Watch:
The Apple Watch is only able to sync to one phone at a time. If you wish to user your Apple Watch on another phone, refer to: Use Number-Sync to sync Apple Watch series 3 to a different iPhone.

@akoxeno - This is the information that I have been searching for...iW3 is looking to be a TOTAL FAILURE (and not just for an Android User). I just wish that there was a smaller sized (less than 40mm, 38mm is perfect) LTE Android connected smartwatch.
This is exactly what I was going to try! An ATT Tech on a chat didn't think that it would work or work well and might even degrade my data connection on my Note 8 once I switched my SIM over from the iPhone.
Thanks to you Both for your help.

How did you find out about the security patch? I keep getting an "oops" message telling me I need to call AT&T because they can't turn on WiFi calling for my account. I have an iPhone 6 plus. Is this part of the same issue?
