I purchased the LTE version couple of days ago. the watch itself is well built, side buttons does not have that tactile feel and make low quality toy noise when you push them, other than that the watch itself performs as expected.
I hooked up my Bluetooth handsfree with it and I can make/Receive calls which is nice.
the only problem of the watch is that it's OS and software market. Tizen is not that bad but comparing to android. lets just say I prefer android wear better, and there are no messaging apps like TELEGRAM, WHATSAPP, VIBER, SKYPE,...
as a stand alone device I expect Samsung t work more on adding some neat and fairly huge user based apps to it's arsenal, if they plan to win the WAR! if you who and what I mean!

Just wanted to know if your watch did really work with European LTE sim card. If it did, then which koren carrier did you chose ?
Appreciate your feedback
AnonD-621387, 16 Dec 2016Can anyone confirm that the Korean LTE version works in Europe? Thanks!i have the frontier UK version not LTE and i also have the frontier LTE version witch i bought from Korea i have been trying to set my LTE version up here in the UK but not having much luck the watch tells me to download the USIM to start the registration when i do this nothing happens when in stand alone mode all i can get is emergency calls only any ideas anyone.
till now the gear S3 LTE works only in certain carriers in USA and Korea , otherwise useless anywhere else.
the thing is that Samsung has to provide the import Sim Profile function back in the Samsung Gear app.
Can anyone confirm that the Korean LTE version works in Europe?
AnonD-619274, 10 Dec 2016Well, after a lot of research on the web my SM-R 765 LTE is on its way to Luxembourg from Kore... moreHey man! I'm waiting for your updates 😄 is it working? The Korean one?
AnonD-619274, 10 Dec 2016Well, after a lot of research on the web my SM-R 765 LTE is on its way to Luxembourg from Kore... moreHi,
did you already get your Gear S3 and is LTE function working in Luxembourg?
Where did you buy it?
I'm looking for one too.
Thanks for your answer.
E-sim was made to make things easier and faster to the device owner / user when he decides to switch network providers while travelling or even while staying ..without the hassle of sim swapping and sizing...etc
but the new gear S3 LTE had failed to provide any kind of freedom or easiness to the user ! its just coming with a fixed E-sim profile tailored for a specific carrier ! so if u go to a different carrier and ask to run their service , it is like going to Vodafone and asking them to provide mobile services on your Orange Sim !
i think no carrier can easily jump over another carrier's e-sim card data , the box itself has its built in E-sim serial no , so even if u ask Tmobile or similar providers for an unlock , what do we really expect them to do ? we need samsung gear app to add the option to Import E-sim data on the Gear S3 LTE
AnonD-619526, 11 Dec 2016actually , there is nothing called " clone the sim card data" to the Gear S3 LTE . not avai... moreSooo.... despite all my searches, you're saying that it will probably not work straight ot of the box, at least not without a tweak or *cough*hack*cough*?
actually , there is nothing called " clone the sim card data" to the Gear S3 LTE .
not available , sorry :(
unlike the Gear S2 3G version ,which has the ability to import e-sim profile data to the watch , but the new Gear S3 LTE version comes with a pre-defined E-sim Card serial no (which is a part of an approved list of Sim Serial numbers belonging to a specific Carrier)
so it is not a matter of unlocking the watch , it is more like you are trying to let an another carrier provide you mobile services on the same sim card of a competitor carrier !
Well, after a lot of research on the web my SM-R 765 LTE is on its way to Luxembourg from Korea, delivery Monday Insh'Allah... Based on what I have read, the GSM bands are compatible so it *should* work over here if the Gear app on my Galaxy S7 Edge will copy my SIM card to the clone host on the watch... One rumour is that I may need to procure a Korean pre-paid SIM card in order to pair the things, we shall see... Am I the only person to import a Korean Frontier LTE to Europe? Will this work? The suspense is killing me...
JG01, 02 Dec 2016Bought the frontier from ATT, returned it, disappointed. The front dial is made out of a cheap... moremine does not rattle at all the plastic is not cheap at all I think you were to quick to dislike it before your gave it a actual attempt to like it.but that's only my opinion (side note mine runs great and functions perfectly and feels comfortable speaker on it sounds great when I'm making as phone call on it mine is Bluetooth)
Got my gear s3 two days and I must say it is the best smartwatch Samsung has put out so far mind you it is a more manly watch, I have not found any thing wrong with it. I love it, it is the future to me everyone will be playing catch up.
Bought the frontier from ATT, returned it, disappointed. The front dial is made out of a cheap plastic, not well secured and rattles. The Gears s2 is better buillt. I'm sticking with my gear S2.
Hazeyj, 30 Nov 2016Hi .want to buy this as present for my husband .he has s7 edge will he need to buy another sim... moreYes you will need to get a new sim card/new number then you can forward your old number to gear and use both numbers. You'd better buy this watch from your mobile company like T-Mobile.
I have a question is it compatible with other Smart phones like Huawei,Sony or any other... anyone share his/her experience is this better then Samsung gear S2 classic ?
