Re: Selling Apple Watch series 3 4g

Morning @Jokerj

 

Welcome to the community.

 

I can see you have had some great advice already.

 

If you sell the Watch after 6 months, you will need to complete the following steps, so someone else can pair the Watch to their iPhone.

 

Your Apple Watch will need to have been unpaired from your iPhone.

 

If this isn't completed the Apple Watch will be activation locked which means you cannot pair this to another iPhone. Details on activation lock can be found on the Apple support pages.

 

Thanks, Leanne.

@Jokerj: You can do what you like with it after 6 months but unless you yourself get it unlocked by EE it will still be locked to EE. You should mention in any advert that it is.

Re: Selling Apple Watch series 3 4g

@Jokerj, it depends whether you got it with a 24 month contract, as you will still have to pay this, as your contract does not run out until then, or whether you bought it outright from somewhere like Apple and just have the £5.- per month added to your account. 

 

As far as I know you can sell it after six months, but you will have to make sure that you factory reset it first. Why not ring customer service and ask them, as they can let you know. What is the reason for selling it?

I don’t really use it any more it’s great for when on holiday etc... but otherwise it just sits on my desk it would brake at work if wore even with a case  I will still pay the contrat but I did think after 6 months I could do what I want with it
