    I use a AW series 4 cellular. It receives all sms & iMessages sent to my number/Apple ID.
    Problem is, it does not receive forwarded text messages from my two other iPhones, both of which, are logged in in the same Apple ID iMessage account as my primary number which is connected to Apple Watch.

    Any thoughts ?

    Just so I am understanding this correctly - you have an Apple Watch and three iPhones. All four devices use the same Apple ID. The Apple Watch and iPhone that are paired are always mirrored, but messages sent to (or from?) the other devices to the paired iPhone and Apple Watch do not show up on the Apple Watch?

    Or messages received on the two other iPhones do not show up on the Apple Watch?

    If the latter question, that is intended. The Apple Watch should only reflect the messages for the iPhone it is paired too.

    Thanks for responding.

    Yes, i have three iPhones ( Primary, secondary 1, secondary 2 ).
    Primary is paired with Apple Watch.
    All 4 devices are using same Apple ID.
    iMessages is activated on all three iPhones with same Apple ID. Text message forwarding is activated on secondary 1, secondary 2 7 any sms sent to these two phones is immediately relayed to my primary number through apple inbuilt text message forwarding feature.

    I am not receiving these forwarded text messages to my Apple Watch. They are coming to my primary paired iPhone but not to the Apple Watch.

    Sms sent to my primary number & iMessage sent to my Apple ID is showing up.

    Sounds like an edge case. I would raise it with Apple and keep your fingers crossed.
