Samsung 46mm watch - solution to not ringing = turn off "mute all" button
This is a note of a solution rather than a question per se.
I got a 46mm Samsung watch for Christmas and was able to connect it to Telstra through my Samsung phone. It was working well and would ring when calls came in, even when I was nowhere near the phone. It then stopped ringing - it would still receive calls, it would vibrate when a call came in, I could take the call, I could make calls, but no ringer, even with the volume on 15. When I was choosing ring tones there would be no sound.
I tried everything over a week - resetting the phone, changing connections etc - and then my daughter found it: in one of the submenus - for "hearing enhancement" - there is a "mute all sounds" button. I'd switched this on in error, presuming that it muted background noise on calls: it doesn't, it mutes all sounds that the watch can make, including the ringer. It presumably also mutes alarms, so it's like a super theatre mode.
Once this was turned off the phone went back to ringing when someone called me. Problem fixed.
