Hi all

 

My wife has an o2 account herself, older account with phone paid off, and her new phone is on my o2 account. 

if she was to order herself an Apple Watch on her o2 account, would it still work with her phone on my o2 account?

 

i know it needs linking to a phone when you order, so I guess the cellular aspect may not work? But would it still deliver notifications of calls and texts etc from her iPhone on my o2 account when on wifi eg at home or work?

 

I’ve heard different things but people always sell them second hand so I thought it wouldn’t matter if the phone and Watch were on different o2 accounts?

Yes it would work without cellular functions as she would just pair it via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, but you'd be paying the £5 monthly data charge for nothing.

It's my understanding that the phone and watch have to be on the same account as you can't pair them together to work if they are on different accounts. Now a word of warning, O2 are currently having problems (which they are trying to fix) with Apple Watches and pairing in general. My advice would be: Any network bar O2 currently.
