TMobile wants $5 dollars more to make calls from a watch when you have a phone plan?

It just seems ridiculous that you're paying about $60 -$100 starting a month for an individual phone plan - much more for family etc. - and companies want to squeeze you for another $5 dollars because you're using a watch instead of your phone but you're not using both at the same time - not two different numbers. Now if it was a $5 separate plan for the watch with its own number that would be a bargain. But let's face it that's not the case here.Phone companies are starting to feel like the airlines charge you for every little thing. We're about to be charge for the entire phone without subsidies.

I'm too lazy to dig around T-Mobile's plans, so I'll just ask - what individual plans do they have that cost $100? I'm just wondering because for my individual plan I pay $79 and that gives me unlimited everything - except tethering of course - I don't tether much so I'm not even sure what the limit is but I think it's at least 5 GB.

There could be different rates now as I've had my plan for a few years but that's partly why I asked.

The watch is connected, it actually does have its own phone number and calls are forwarded from your phone to the watch number. That is why there is an additional cost.

Yes $5/mo ($15 stand alone) unlimited talk/text/500mb of data w/music freedom. When the phone is connected via bluetooth its an extension of you devise. When not connected by bluetooth and as long as its connected through your samsung account you still recieve all the alerts and calls and messages as if you had your phone. When you respond however it will show the watch phone number and info. Your phone could be in NYC and you and the watch in LA and all would still work to a degree.
