Just adding to this thread. Not sure what the rationale for the internal strife at Telus, but there is inconsistency in how they are responding about if a watch can be activated under a corporate account. I had email confirmation,prior to me aquiring a watch, that my particular account can have an Apple Watch. Got one and phoned in the IMEI and EDI to be told that my cooperate account does not alllow watches. I guess the story is you cannot trust telus’ words in writing.

This is getting to the point of beyond ridiculousness. What’s the point of having a corporate plan if you cannot activate services? I have had an Apple Watch LTE I cannot activate and at this rate it’ll be obsolete by the time Telus will allow me to activate it! Get this feature going or I am switching!

In december they told me 8 weeks..last week told me before the end of rhe semester..real joke..

Wonder how likely it is that May will be the month we can activate LTE on our Apple Watches?  Anyone?  Bueller?

I was told today the end of May. I am holding out hope sooner or later. This cannot be so difficult. All I want to do is use their cellular line. I have the bloody watch and want to add to my service. What is the darn problem??? This is just plain stupid.

 

 

I was at a Telus store last week. One of the workers told me it’s not official but he heard mid May they’ll support it. Honestly the whole thing makes no sense. I switched from Rogers only to find out they don’t support the watch on corporate account. It’s really frustrating. Let’s hope it’s soon

Finally someone at Telus with the stones to hint at a timeline.  Let's hope they were accurate with that piece of info and not just blowing smoke up your tailpipe.

I really hope so. I just find the whole thing ridiculous. Really getting fed up of waiting especially when I know they offer the service for the consumer plan🙄

Tell me about it.  On top of all that the consumer plan is double that of Bell.  Telus wants $10 a month vs. the $5 Bell is charging.  I will seriously switch if the corporate rate is $10/month.  If it really is $10/month what was the point of all this waiting?  What would the benefit of being a Telus corporate customer?

 

Let's see if Telus actually gives us something worthwhile to stay loyal.

Telus has a $30 connection fee vs Bells $10. Bell definitely better for Apple Watch customers. Sad.

You want to tell me they charge $30 connection fee for the Apple Watch as well ?

That will be the icing on the cake for this Apple Watch fiasco at Telus.

 

Us: So um you want $10 a month and a $30 connection fee?  But you made us corporate customers wait since Dec for this service your regular customers had since Dec?

 

Telus:  Yeah but think of all the money you saved by waiting for our exciting new corporate plan!  We think outside the box here at Telus!

 

Us: ... Hello, Bell?  I'd like to switch

My account rep says they should be able to add my Apple Watch on Monday(May 28)... Sounds like the same $10/1GB plan that consumer accounts have.

Wow I really hope that true. So sad owning an Apple Watch that’s capable of using LTE but having no line from your provider. Do you really think your account rep knows what he’s talking about when he said Monday May 28?
Thanks

Yea he's been really reliable in the past so I'm confident he's got good info. He'll be calling me to add it on Monday when he has the rest of the details.

Ok great can’t wait. Thanks for the good news.

I was unable to confirm the option for next monday with the business customer  service.. BUT..its seems they already have the formation on business side..so i would bet less than 2 weeks..i've been told last time i phone before the end of the semester so before june 30..Hope it's true for monday keep in touch..

It's rather ridiculous that if they are in fact going to begin offering Apple Watch LTE support on the 28th, you would think they would start letting customers know.  Being in the dark over timelines and rate plans is rather annoying.  We shall see what happens on Monday.  I imagine there may be a carrier update on my phone associated with this?

Good news. Just went into a Telus boutique and asked one of the sales people if it’s true about Monday May 28 and he said yes it’s true it’s finally here. He said lots of people were upset that they had no line for their Apple Watch. I asked if it was going to be $5 or $10. He told me we really don’t know yet. Anyway it’s still good news. Thanks to everyone on this thread for sharing all the info. Good luck to you guys. Let me know how it goes on Monday.

Any luck Ron?  It's past noon where I'm at and still nothing.
