Sorry for stupid question, but does this mean that it's only going to work on Verizon network? E.g. if I plan to use it with Samsung S7 from AT&T, it's not going to work?

Thanks

I don't think AT&T would add it to your account and I believe it only works on Verizon.

You can prob connect via bluetooth the verizon network features are probably for dialing out on the device or having data capability's when not close to phone.

The devices have been professionally refurbished by a manufacturer-approved vendor. This means the product has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to meet manufacturer specifications and is in excellent condition. The device has been repackaged and non-OEM accessories are included.

Ok, so these are not refurbished by Samsung, but a Samsung vendor. This does not state that the vendor is authorized to refurbish or not, as any vendor (even a sales vendor) can do the refurbishing and claim they are a "manufacturer approved vendor". T-Mobile stores are Samsung Vendors. Kabob Wireless down the street sells Samsung phones, therefore they are probably a Samsung Vendor as well.
Keep in mind, only Samsung can do a true Manufacturer Refurbishing. There is no mention of any warranty, which again is not something Samsung would do when they sell Refurbished items. And finally, the fact that it includes non-OEM accessories should be a red flag as well.

While this is a solid deal, these are not refurbished by Samsung, and Samsung would never throw in any non-OEM accessories as cheap generic chargers may cause issues (fires, etc) and they would not want to be liable.

Not sure i want to view a web page or play Pokemon Go on a phone... but the calling part can already happen, just not much demand for that, ergo "companion" smart watches.

Commentary aside, deal seems ok if you want to gamble on the non-manufacturer refurb

Thanks, I'm trying to find out which functionality would be missing on ATT network. Is it just a standalone 3G connection? Can someone with S2 comment whether or not it's really that useful?

It is useful if you would like to leave your phone at home. When running errands, excercising, bar hopping etc... and still be reachable. You can text, call, email and listen to music with the 3g. It has saved me a few times when I forgot my phone at home. The battery definitely takes a hit when using it as a standalone and doesn't last one day.

For me at this price (basically the same cost of the non 3g version) its worth it. Verizon does charge $5/mo for line access. I think (could be wrong) att charges $10/mo

As a T-Mobile 3G Gear S2, I strongly advise to not purchase if you are not already on Verizon. The main feature of this watch is its standalone capabilities vis a vis Call,text and basic navigation. My main use cases for this device are :

1. Emergency phone: Calls are surprisingly good and volume is adequate in most environments. Can be paired with Bluetooth headphones/earpiece and there is even a strap in Beta that is designed to allow bone induction based "private calling" features.

2. Texting: The native Tizen OS definitely makes texting much easier than you would expect thanks to innovations in UI as well the physical design with the scrollable bezel. I find myself using this a lot. It even has T9 based texting for a truly bizarre blast from the past experience but overall fairly functional texting device.

3. Visual Voicemail: Google Voice plus standalone 3G functionality means I get voicemail transcribed almost immediately. I have saved a lot of time this way because I can pick and choose who I cal back.

4. Music: Native storage allows for music to be stored on board or can use streaming services like Samsung Milk music. No support for Spotify or Google Play Music Frown

Pros: Design, fairly inconspicuous, surprisingly not an eyesore, waterproof,Awesome charger

Cons: Battery is not as good as advertised. Only Power saving mode will go the 2 days they promise. With realistic use more like 10-15 hours.
