Galaxy Watch 4 Classic 46mm - LTE - Sim not provisioned for Voice

Hey guys.  I'm getting no help from the O2 Support pages as they dont seem to have any knowledge base on the watch yet.  Also they seem to have disabled the Chat feature.

 

Anyway, I've got the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.  When it arrived it came with the E-Sim QR code which I scanned and it said sim activated. 

 

But I cant make calls or get a connection on it. 

 

(I'd like to change the sim to me phones number aswell but thats a secondary issue)

 

Does anyone know how to check that the sim is active or to "re-activate" it so that I can use the LTE/4G on the watch?

 

Many thanks in advance and hope you are all well.

 

Duncan

Samsung watch setup.
1. Contact O2 and get them to set up Data and WIFI calling on your Samsung mobile, it's free but needs to be set up to use the watch. You can then turn the switch on in setting under connections.
2. If you need an esim the only place to get it now is at an O2 store, it's free at the store.
3. If you already have an esim you won't be able to set up your watch just by going through the process on the Gear app, it'll set up the plan in principle on the phone and watch, but it won't connect to the network so don't waste your time. Delete the plan and go to an O2 store.
4. The only way you'll get the watch connected is by going to the O2 store, sitting with the sales person and have them set up the esim and the plan, it's £5 per month for 1gb which is more than enough data.
5. Most store sales people haven't a clue about setting up the Samsung watch 4g, so have them give you the esim, scan the QR code let your phone set up the plan and then have them go into their system as if your purchasing the watch directly from O2, at the bottom of their screen (this is at an O2 store) there is a box that says set up watch plan, when they press that, it'll allow them to set up a watch data plan, as if you've purchased the watch from O2.
6. At that point and after the salesperson puts in all the info from the esim they gave you into their system, it'll take about 10 min for the watch to connect, you'll then need to go into the connection settings on your watch, turn on auto for data, turn on data roaming and then go to the network search setting on the watch and let it the watch search for the network, it'll then register it and you're almost there.
7. Next go to your mobile and in settings, advanced, turn on the switch to use your mobile data on other devices, make sure when you turn it on, it shows your Samsung watch at the bottom, tap and another screen comes up showing the watch is connected to your phone.
8. Then reboot your watch and your mobile and you're done. Test it by leaving your phone in your home and take a walk, the watch should connect and show the 4g symbol and the mobile calling bars, if you try and make a call and it doesn't work or says connect to Bluetooth, go back to step 7, and reboot the phone to make sure it's found the device, i.e. your watch. It will also say at the bottom of the watch, standalone, means your using the watch on it's own.
9. You're done. Just remember you can only get your Samsung Watch 4g connected by getting it done in the O2 store.

Wow, that was quick and comprehensive.  Thank you.

 

I have a full contract for the data on the watch.  So shouldnt need another e-sim contract or purchase.  I guess I'm off to an O2 store then.  

 

Frustrating, but thank you for your help.

Take the eSim QR code with you as the store will need to scan it.

Not all shops are fully trained on this so take the instructions with you too wink

Good luck.

Thanks for this excellent assistance.  I have my ESIM and data plan, and my watch is registered on the network and the connection settings are all as above, the watch is connected via the Gear app on my S10+ and the app confirms the 'mobile plan' is on. When I get to Step 7 above, the watch does not appear on the 'Call & text on other devices' screen.  All I see are 'This Phone - Galaxy S10+' and my  Samsung account email address. 

 

Any help would be much appreciated. 

Thanks
