This Neighbourhood is inhabited by customers, just like you. We have no insight to Telus business plans, and no connection to the internal workings of Telus. We volunteer to share knowledge about Telus products and services which we have gained by experience or surmise. As such, the participants here would have no insight to timelines of Telus product or service releases.

So do we have to call in? I was under the assumption we would be able to add the feature via the Apple Watch app on the iPhone...

Could it be? holy cow that took a long time
Any idea if this will work on any corporate account?

It seems a bit odd that they haven't updated the product page that says it can only be activated on consumer accounts: https://www.telus.com/en/ab/mobility/accessories/product/apple-watch-series-3
Hopefully this all becomes clear this week...

You would think some sort of real world testing would have occurred before "launching" this for corporate accounts... I suspect the testing is being done by us.
*slow clap* Well done Telus... well done.

I don't mind to be part of beta testing hopefully not Alpha..;-)

I have noticed that in the Apple Watch app, under Cellular it occasionally Flashes Telus before reverting back to Set Up Cellular - so it is attempting to connect to commence and complete setup but the process fails quickly.
I am curious why our account setups are different than the consumer plans? I would think the process to activate LTE is the same? To me, it's really just a difference of account classification - the mechanism to activate should be the identical... but hey I'm no expert.

Got the same issue here. Plan was created but Watch won't connect to cellular network
Got the total turnaround also. 45 min with Telus (after 20 min wait) to say its Apple's fault and to go to the store. Spent another 45 min with Apple on phone and got redirected back to Telus

Just curious if those of you who are on Telus corporate accounts have taken Marketing and understand the Technology Adoption Life Cycle? Corporate account customers should understand that the Apple Watch Series 3 LTE was meant for those early adopters who have the financial capacity to use these new gadgets. I'm just saying technical difficulties are to be expected with bleeding edge technology.
05-30-2018 02:14 PM
Bleeding edge? You do know that the Apple Watch was released in September 2017 and most major carriers have it right?
Hell even Telus had it on the consumer side since last December. The current issue is more incompetency than technical if you ask me
05-30-2018 02:23 PM
Yes, bleeding edge because no other smartphone or device is using an eSIM and no other smartwatch is voice enabled except the Series 3 Apple Watch.
Who knows what the current issue is but this memetics concept holds true for all technology related products.

I worked for a different telco for 7 years...I doubt the issue is the underlying network or operating equipment, but adjusting the billing system. To me that makes more sense why the consumer plans are officially supported but they can't get a firm position on corporate plans because the billing of corporate plans tends to be a lot more complicated.
It's always sad when you want to give your money to a company and they just won't take it!

Around 5PM Eastern, everything started to work and my watch is now on LTE on a Business Account
