I have had this happen exactly twice in the last few days, each occasion being with a different contact. I’ll receive a text message and feel a tap on my wrist. The message comes in to the watch, but never arrives on the phone.
My Apple Watch isn’t even an LTE model. How is this possible? I do not have (or want) iMessage in iCloud enabled.
But this new behavior is troubling. What should I do? Thanks!
Update: Before I could even post this message, I just happened to see that the message from the first occurrence (Saturday) arrived, completely without fanfare, still bearing the original timestamp and marked as an unread message. This is very strange. Dare I hope the other message (first sent to me within the hour) will eventually be delivered to the phone?
The message that just arrived was the latest in its thread, while I have sent and received other messages in the thread that still has an outstanding message. I have no idea if that will be a factor in the future delivery (or nondelivery) of the missing message.
