Can I use my same mobile number if I get a second sim for a Huawei 2 watch?

I have a Huawei P20 pro and would like to purchase the Huawei smart watch 2 4G.  The watch has the facility to insert a nano sim card.  Will EE supply a second sim and can it use my existing number?

Hi @Vennwood

 

No, You cannot have two sims with the same number.

 

You can have another number/line on your account.

 

Thanks

Thanks for that  Some users of the Huawei watch say that it can be done but only with certain providers.  Why would Huawei do it if you needed a different number - surely it would make much of the functionality useless as the majority of notifications or calls would be to your main mobile number 

I see from reading other topics on here that its not possible so buying the Huawei Watch 4G seems pointless

@Vennwood. As said is not possible to have 2 sims that have the same number,  even the Apple Watch has its own number so it can receive calls but these are forwarded from the account number that the person is calling.  And as yet only the Apple Watch will work with this functionality.  

 

Huawei have created a watch but they have not done this is partnership with EE so it will not work in the same way as the Apple Watch on the EE Network.
