Hi, 

 

can anyone explain why O2 charges a fiver per month for the airtime plan for a Samsung Galaxy smartwatch 4G, when other carriers offer it for free and just allow you to share the phone airtime? Is it just a nice little earner for O2, and/or some technical reason? 

 

I have probably answered my own question but would interested in other's thoughts....

 

Cheers, John

Both o2 and Vodafone charge extra for all smartwatches as they use the network infrastructure and use a MSISDN number and use data... 

 

BT(EE) take on that cost but charge more for the watch.. so swings and roundabouts

Current Phone: Motorola Razr 5g
I also have a Planet Computers Gemini

I work in IT as an Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Tools Administrator (Office 365, Slack and much much more) and manage hardware both Mobile and Desktop / laptop, my desk is a bit like PC World

We are all customers and dont have access to any o2 accounts
