Thanks for your help! I am anxiously awaiting the news for corporate accounts b/c xmas is coming!
I really wanted to get an Apple Watch series 3 for my wife's xmas gift only because of the LTE functionality (and we are on a corporate account only).
So before I spend more than a thousand dollars on her xmas gift that will never truly work for her - is anyone able to tell me if Apple Watch LTE for telus corporate is plainly just never going to happen?
I could see the possibility of it eventually being offered on small business accounts, but unlikely on larger corporate accounts.
I enjoy my Series 1 Watch now, even without the cellular connectivity, but I'd not be holding my breath for an early inclusion of cellular connectivity for Watch in business plans. But that's simply a guess on my part.
I was waiting on pricing from Telus and I must say I'm very disappointed! l want the flexibility of not having to always having my phone with me for emergencies while running/cycling but considering the fact that it doesn't function overseas (I travel lots) and and I can easily take my phone with me cycling this makes this device too expensive to justify! Bell's pricing is reasonable so I will be shopping them market for options as they become available...
I have the same issue. I have the correct plan but can't get it to work. I spoke with their help desk today and was told that I need to go to the Telus store and have them load an e-SIM card. Which is odd because I had been to the store earlier today and they told me that I simply needed to follow the prompts on the Apple Watch app. I didn't have the new iOS loaded at the time so I left the store, updated the iOS and then got the Telus error msg (same as above).
I will try going to the Telus store tomorrow and post an update.
Wow thats a new kind of stupid. Sorry not to be rude but the TELUS rep should know that an E-sim means sim-LESS its an E or Electronic SIM. i.e built into the watch.
More likely its carrier settings or IOS version that is your problem. Assuming you have a shareable plan which seems to be a pre-requisite.
It was a painful call with the Telus rep. It was clearly her first time dealing with this issue. I told her that I bought the watch months ago and she wanted to give me instructions on how to pair it with the phone. I have the correct plan, have checked the updates on the phone and the watch, and looked through all my settings. I can't figure out why it doesn't work.
