Apple Watch for a surprise present can’t be bought through O2 without sending a text to the phone!

Wanting to buy a watch for Christmas but O2 won’t sell me one unless I get a text to the users phone I want it to be a surprise! So frustrating!

@Amanda22 

Can you not order it on your account?

Hi @Amanda22 

Welcome to the o2 community forum!

Regarding the watch you'd like buy as a gift surprise.   I suppose it needs to be logged into the other person's mobile for access etc.through their account?

If there's no way around it, at all, then it'll have to be an early surprise, I suppose.  

Good luck and best wishes TallTrees

No it doesn't need to be logged to a specific account until it's registered for use.
