Then why did you get a GEAR? Not trying to be rude, but you seem a bit disappointed that you GG doesn´t do the things it is supposed to do....

you seem to be overreacting. he simply asked how contact pictures works. there is absolutly nothing with using gear with other devices. as it has been stated before, not all functions work.

Sorry if I sounded rude. It is just that if he knows the Gear doesn´t get full functionality with his Nexus, then why is he wondering why he doesnt get caller id and photo.... It is pretty obvious it is for lack of compatibility.

Thank you both for useful posts / help! I re installed the apks from gear manager 1.5 and now works - I have caller ID and photos.
I think I must have missed one apk when installing the first time.

Now to try ang get notifications to work.
