    I know it's beta software, just wondering if anyone else has seen this issue. Since updating my watch to beta 2, sending a text with Siri causes the message to be sent to a random contact, and it's the same contact every time. I deleted this contact, and the watch picked another one. I've tried unpairing and re-pairing as new to no avail. The only thing I haven't done is restore my phone to iOS 10 beta 2 for a fresh install, which I'll be doing tomorrow. Has anyone else seen this?

    Wow that's weird. Sending fine for me. I'm running beta 2 of iOS 10 and watchOS 3.

    That's actually reassuring. Hopefully a full restore of my phone will solve the issue.

    Yup, I have it too. It's an ugly bug. Such is beta life.

    Is anyone still having this issue in watchOS 3 beta 5?

    Mine since the latest beta has been sending as an SMS to "null" whenever I ask it to send to someone else. It recognizes the contact I said, but then just creates a new conversation with "null" and sends it there. Now, "null" has no phone numbers so then Sprint sends me an SMS saying my text couldn't send because it was a recognizable number or format.
