I know a lot of you don't have an interest in the walkie talkie, but some of us may find it a useful feature. Any former Nextel users here? Alas, there seems to be issues connecting WT at the rollout. There have been many reports here and elsewhere listing several bugs, most of which are preventing the function from working at all. I'd like to see is this really is a widespread issue and if there is any temporary fix while we wait for iOS 12.1. Not working for me, at least when trying to connect with my wife's phone. I have a s4 watch with iPhone XS, and she has s2 watch with iPhone 6s. My issue is that I can see and invite my wife, but then I get the message "not available, this only works with contacts that have watches", which she does. The WT app then shows her as "inviting" (NOT "invited"). When she invites me, there is no error message but her watch then shows me as being "inviting" (again, not "invited"). Neither of ever get the invite from each other. I've deleted the invites from both watches several times and re-invited. I've also rebooted and re-paired the watches. Sometimes at the head of the contact list I see some "suggestions", which should indicate a potential WT "match", but results are the same. I -can- however invite my son, who has an s0 watch. My WT shows him as "InivitED", but of course he will never receive it. Two things that are needed for any of this to work: FaceTime needs to be on both user's phone, and both user's have to be using their AppleID as "can be reached at" for FaceTime. Also, the AppleID used needs to be unique - no shared AppleIDs if you want WT. So - does Walkie Talkie work for you?
