Quote from xftman :
-- I placed one order 41mm Mystic Bronze (LTE) on Mar 1 and delivered on Mar 13 except the following bands are delayed.
Quick Change Silicone Sport Watch Band (20mm) Purple
Serafil<sup>®</sup> Prime Leather (20mm) Brown
This morning when I checked my order status again both are canceled by Samsung without receive any e-mail. Though these bands are free as part of watch package but Samsung can't just canceled without notified. Does anyone have same issue?

-- I placed another order 41mm Mystic Bronze (Bluetooth) on Mar 5 and was delayed (from Mar 13 to 23 to Apr 13) and this morning receive another e-mail for another 30 days delay include the watch and all bands....
How much money did you order the watch on March 5?

Factory Reset my S3 Classic watch. When the watch is powered on, it starts at Let's Go screen. Is this sufficient for trade in purpose? Thanks

Received a note saying my watch was rejected because "You did not disable your personal security locks, including the Factory Reset Protection or Activation Lock."

I followed the limited directions in the return checklist, including verification the device isn't 'blacklisted' (in my kind that meant not stolen). This situation falls under my device is blacklisted

I was given 2 choices, free return to me or let them recycle it. No other choice to resolve.

Be careful when you return...

I did factory reset the device. I did boot it up after and although I am not 100% sure it said Let's Go, there definitely wasn't any kind of error or warning. I didn't disconnect or log out of anything in the app so I figured I just screwed that up.

Email stated: "Because your Trade-in device did not satisfy all requirements of our Trade-in Program Terms and Conditions, in 7 days, you will be charged $160, plus any applicable taxes, for the instant trade-in credit you received as part of the initial order XXXX"

HERE IS WHAT YOU TOLD US ABOUT YOUR TRADE-IN DEVICE:
Does the device turn on?
The device must start up to the home screen and function normally

Will you factory reset your device before you ship it?
You must factory reset to remove all personal data from your device.

Is your device free of cracks?
The screen and camera lenses, if applicable, must be free of cracks and function normally.

Ensure the device is not blacklisted.

BUT WE IDENTIFIED:
You did not disable your personal security locks, including the Factory Reset Protection or Activation Lock.

Here is a link that talks about Factory Reset Protection

Factory Reset Protection (FRP), is a security feature on Android devices with Android OS Version 5.1 (Lollipop) and higher. The FRP provides a built-in security feature you are able to use that protects your device and information, including screen locks and data encryptions. The FRP is enabled automatically when a Google account has been registered on the device and will be disabled if the Google account is removed from the device prior to the Factory Data Reset. Once the FRP has been activated, it will prevent use of your device after a Factory Data Reset in an untrusted environment. This means if your device has been Factory Reset in any other way than Settings > General Management > Reset > Factory Data Reset, the FRP Lock will be enabled.

Did you factory reset via settings option or reset via power/home buttton (reset via hardware keys)?

I went into the watch settings menu and selected factory reset. I googled this topic extensively since receiving this communication from Samsung, and it's really not clear what I should have done that I didn't do. All references to these types of locks seem to be related to Android phones not watches.

I thought I would come in here and see that others were having similar problems. None of these threads I looked at reported anyone at all complaining about this. It's not clear what I did wrong, but once I get the watch back I will evaluate it

Thanks. Please report here what you find. I was looking for the same info. Most threads on watch3 didn't have this info. In one of the threads, someone mentioned that their watch started up on Let's Go screen and it was accepted. I just shipped my watch S3 SM-R775V that starts at Let's Go screen. I will report back what happens. Thx
