Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

Yes, the Gear S3 Frontier can be set up as a Standalone device as it has an embedded SIM card. You need to call the carrier network which the watch was registered to get the eSIM activated (it has an embedded SIM which can't be removed). To see SIM number and details, see the last part of the answer.

Did you setup the watch already ? If not, follow the steps below to setup it as standalone device

  1. Turn on the watch
  2. On the setup screen, tap the question mark underneath the download instructions to display the Help screen.
  3. Scroll down to the message that reads 'If you want to use Gear without connecting to your phone, tap here' and tap here.
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to setup it.

If you already setup it to work with phone, then you need to factory reset it as setup it as mentioned above. Refer this article to reset it --> https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-33558

Then setup it as standalone device.

To see eSIM details, please see below;

  1. From the Home screen, tap Settings.
  2. Tap Gear info.
  3. Tap About device.
  4. View the ICCID. This is the SIM card number.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so I will continue to help you until we fix the problem

Note : This is not my final answer. I strive to provide Excellent service or 5 star service. If you feel you've received anything less or if you are not satisfied or if my solutions didn't work, please don't rate me bad or poor or ok as it will badly affect my job here. Instead, please let me know and I will try my best to help you until you are fully satisfied or the issue is resolved.
