    For those of you who have the Gear...is there anyway to see text messages on the Gear when they come in to the phone? That would be useful...but so far I haven't found a way to do it.

    Are you using a different app for them? You have to use the stock message app. I use handcent but did not turn off notifications from the stock app just set sound to silent.

    I use Handcent also. So, to be able to read text messages on my Gear I have to resort to using the native sms program that comes with the Note 3?

    Just have it on you'll get 2 notifications but if you put sound silent you can use your custom ringtones in handcent but use handcent on your phone. You can use svoice to respond from gear although svoice is notvery good on the gear.
