Hello. Wondering how this is billed. If i have a share plan that does not include call forwarding, and I also have an apple watch cellular, will I be charged for call forwarding when I receive calls on the apple watch without a phone present.
Technically the phone does forward the calls to the watch to place the call as the watch has a secondary phone number.
Just to continue ... I know its pretty rare to be out of the home without a phone, but in theory the watch cellular makes that viable. By bolting the watch onto the phone, one would expect to be able to pick up calls to the phone on the watch without incurring extra charges - but I think with how its set up technically to be routed as a call forward, it would trigger a call forward charge each time, wouldn't it?
I just contacted support about this issue and their response is offering $5 call forward add on to m, more specifically, they said Apple Watch must go through call forward to receive phone call. Then I try to avoid this fee by letting others call Watch number directly, which turns out that the Watch number cannot be reached directly. So the conclusion is the $10 Apple Watch fee is only used for calling number outwards, I am thinking about using it as pagers now…
Just got the Apple Watch yesterday and setup the cellular plan. I'm on the Telus EPP $50 Peace of mind 20GB plan. The purpose of the watch is so I can go places without my phone. However, all calls are billed at $0.50 per minute (can see this in usage) when my cell phone is not present. Anyone get this working correctly?
I had the same issue...was being charged $0.50 per minute for calls on my Apple Watch. I called support and they reversed the charges and put a "fix" in place to prevent it from happening again. I suspect that the watch was being added as a regular data device and not a watch with a special billing profile (or special relationship with the primary line).
In any case, it's resolved after a quick call to support. Excellent service.
