With the change to the new $60 10GB plan, has anyone activated their Apple Watch?? I’ve gone through the process in the app and get the message that I can activate it.

Apple Watch needs a shareable data plan.

Yah I get that but when you activate it, it adds 1 gb of shareable data....

The 10gb plan works just fine with the watch. The watch has its own 1gb data, so even though it won’t share your non-share 10gb, it will happily use its 1gb it comes with, while still sharing your voice/text from primary number.

Mine is working fine

Figured it out... just activate yourself using the Watch app on the iPhone. Activated in a few seconds. No issues and nothing about it’s not shareable

So my apple watch 3 was working fine with my nonshareable 10 gbplan I got as part of their holiday promotion. But now they unlinked it from my iphone and said it would not work with a nonshare plan and I would have to switch to a different plan. The watch as now listed on my account as an orphaned watch with it's own number but I can't actually call it or receive a call when away from my iphone. I am still paying 10/month for it. Anybody have this happen and, if so, any solution?

Did you call in and try to make changes or randomly they changed your account?

I would have them cancel it and then just go through the Watch app and activate it again.
