I, the primary contact/guardian, can't call or text Gabb 3 Watch. Everyone else can.

I can receive my daughter's calls and texts, but my texts to her don't go through and my calls ring once (for me. Not at all on the watch) before a message saying the voicemail box has not been set up. How can I fix this? All other contacts work both ways.

    Has anyone else struggled to reset their gabb 3 watch? I first tried on the app but removing and resetting, but all it did was remove the device. Then I tried on the watch and the reset screen comes up but it doesn't reset.

    I'm trying to do this because it stopping making calls. The most important this is having a reliable way to contact my kid, especially in the summer, and gabb is not delivering.

    Hi @kfurf,

    How frustrating that the troubleshooting steps did not help resolve this issue with the calling. We can see that you were able to contact our Customer Support to do these additional troubleshooting steps:

    1. Customer Support Network Reset
      1. Ask a Customer Support agent to help troubleshoot through a Network Reset

    2. Check for Software and Firmware Updates:
