Hi,

I am thinking of buying a smart watch through O2. I have a pay monthly mobile contract with Virgin mobile, I was about to order the smart watch when I read that my mobile has to be on the O2 network also. As Virgin and O2 have now amalgamated, will I be able to use an O2 watch with a Virgin mobile phone, or will I have to change mobile networks to do so?

 

Thanks

You'd need to ask O2 that question as they make the rules, not us @TJ1000 

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

You need an O2 monthly contract.

I have an O2 sim in my tablet which I have linked to my phone, I don't understand why this cannot be done with a smartwatch?

Can not be done at all, and never will due to the Virgin Mobile network configuration, which is in no way linked to o2's network. 

VM use Vodafone and until later this year EE for MVNO 

 

Mind you saying that, I have heard rumours that Virgin Mobile, may be closed to new customers at some point in the next couple of years, and go the way of there PAYG Offering.
