GALAXY WATCH 4 overheating problem
My new Galaxy watch 4 LTE cannot make calls. After 1 minute the connection is dropped, and the watch goes into the cooling mode. I googled it, and it is a common AT&T problem. Many people have similar complaints. When the signal from the tower is weak, the watch uses a lot of power and rapidly overheats. This happens only with AT&T (GSM signal) and not, say, with Verizon (CDMA).
Now, for my phone I use AT&T MicroCell to boost the signal at home, where the signal is weak. However, Microcell is not supported anymore as AT&T now recommends calling over wi-fi instead.
If I would be able to connect my new watch to my Microcell, the signal would be strong, and I could use my new watch to make calls with no overheating. But the watch is locked to AT&T network (I cannot choose it manually) and I cannot see Microcell. (Alternatively, if the watch would use calling over wi fi, it would also solve the problem, but Samsung's Galaxy watch does not support wi fi calling.)
AT&T - please just unlock my watch and allow me to connect to Microcell. Otherwise, I will return my new watch. It is crazy - to buy a watch for 400 USD, to pay for extra line monthly, and not be able to call.
Any alternative solutions?
