Upgrading Apple Watch

Hi all

 

I have an Apple Watch 3 linked to my main line.  I want to take advantage of an early upgrade which means I have to buy out my contract so I can get an Apple Watch 4.

 

I would the like to link the series 3 to my second line for my son to use with the series 4 being paired to my main line.

 

i understand I would need to pay £5 a month to keep the series 3 cellular running but after a rather abrupt call with an EE sales rep today  I was told I cannot do this as the esim in the s3 would be deactivated.

 

She was adamant that this would not work but I am still not clear as to why. Is the sales rep wrong??

 

if I’ve paid off the contract then surely I am free to do as I please with my old watch?

 

Am I missing something here?

 

Many thanks 

 

Anthony

Hi @Int3rceptor

 

As long as your son has a pay monthly line and has a compatible phone (iPhone 6 or newer), you should be able to choose the £5 plan when pairing the Apple Watch to his number.

 

Let us know how you get on.

@Int3rceptor   You can do that you just set up the s3 from within the watch app on your sons phone.

Re: Upgrading Apple Watch

Whilst your current eSIM in the series 3 Watch will be deactivated, as mentioned there’s nothing what so ever stopping you adding a new plan/eSIM to the Watch.

 

It’s just the same as swapping physical SIM cards.

 

No idea why EE would think otherwise?
