Re: iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max & iPhone XR Megathread

Just noticed if you try and add a data plan to Apple Watch. You not longer get the not supported by your carrier message. Takes you to an o2 page saying not supporter that’s why there are no plans available.

Must be coming soonish....Hopefully!

Apple Watch support

Please support the Apple Watch

So I'm 6 months into my EE contract and I hate the network. The signal is terrible and I can't make calls in my own house.

I used O2 with iPhones for a very long time. I switched networks because you did not offer Apple Watch support, at this point I'd pay to exit my EE contract early and switch back if you supported the Apple Watch.

 

It's annoying when my O2 iPad is still better for voice chat in my house than the EE iPhone, but both iPhone and Apple Watch need to be on the same network for them to work together.

We had only ever mentioned eSim arriving in the first half of 2019, but not for any specific device - my apologies if you were led to believe otherwise though.

We will range more eSIM enabled devices on our network in the future though, but can’t share any further detail at this stage as we're working to ensure that O2 customers have the best possible eSim experience.

We launched our first eSim enabled device, the Samsung Galaxy Gear S2 in 2016. We have used insight from that to build our Apple Watch launch, and will continue to apply this customer led approach to our eSim strategy and roll out.

As and when more eSIM enabled devices are supported, we'll let customers know.

Re: iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max & iPhone XR Megathread

I want to bring my own cellular Apple Watch s4 that I bought from Apple to o2 but apparently I can not.

Apparently after speaking with a o2 advisor you can only use a Apple Watch if you buy it directly from o2?

Not so. If you look (Sorry can’t remember where) is a link for if you already have an Apple Watch and you can get the same plan of 6 months free and then £5 per month thereafter. Worked well for me on ios12 but the upgrade to ios13 Beta breaks it. Suspect a subsequent beta release will sort the problem out.

Never use beta software on new devices especially if you don’t know what you are doing or don’t want it broken as you can have problems trying to roll back

Re: iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max & iPhone XR Megathread

I do know what I’m doing and I offer the comment to those who might be thinking about trying the beta. I have been on Apple beta programs, iOS and Mac OS, for 8 years. The important thing is that the O2 advisor is wrong.
