I am going to possibly buy a gear I just have a quick question l did some googling but could not find a solid answer. ..I see that with the recent update the gear will show notifications from a third party application like evolve sms. ..or go sms...but the question is can I reply to the messages either via voice or by a side loaded keyboard. ..I do not mind to root the thing I just don't really see a point for me to get one if in order for me to reply to a quick text or email I have to take the phone out of my pocket. .. oh yeah in case it matters I have a note 2 tmo version running DN3

No you cant reply to any third party SMS using voice/keyboard.

If order to reply you must be using the stock SMS app.

When you say you can reply using the stock SMS app, do you mean using S-Voice or can you side load keyboard app and reply using the stock SMS app?

you can use tablet talk to pair with your phone and with the keyboard installed you can then reply back to text messages which are relayed to your gear thru tablet talk.

You should be able to perform the tablet talk paring on stock gear no root needed. Great things await once u jump on board with null. Once you try null you will never go back. If you want go to null's website and sign up for the chat. Some awesome folks there to help you decide. Just click on fomeys signature.
