Welcome to Vodafone Community
Hi. I've rung customer services three times about connecting my Apple watch (bought from Apple) to my current SIM only plan.....to only now be told that my £20pm plan isn't suitable.
They've now told me I have to upgrade my SIM to a £32pm plan in order for them to enable my Apple watch connection.
Can anyone confirm this is the correct information?
The first two times I called Vodafone they checked my plan and said it was ok to proceed. The third time I called he said I had to change my plan to £32pm for 30gb data. Obviously I refused.
Can a Vodafone employee please clarify.
Have you tried Vodafone's online eligibility checker, and/or just adding the Watch to your Vodafone account as part of the setup process when you pair the Watch with your iPhone?
When I first got the watch the eligibility checker said I was ok for a connection. The watch app on my iPhone currently says my plan isn’t set up for it and to call 191.
When I press the cellular button on my watch it says no plan.
Just tried Eligibility checker again and it said this....
“Thanks for using Apple Watch Eligibility Checker.You have in Progress order for the service. Please call Vodafone on 191 for help.”
Hey @jpa3, thanks for getting in touch. I'm really sorry to hear you're having trouble getting your Apple Watch connected and understand how frustrating this must be.
So I can investigate further, I'll need to access your account. To do this securely, I've sent you a private message with details on how to get in touch.
I’ve replied to your message above but not heard back from you. Do I have to leave Vodafone at renewal time so I can connect my Apple Watch for a reasonable fee at EE. ??
@jpa3 I'm sorry you haven't had a response from us yet, you should have received an automated email with your reference number - which looks something like this [#12345678]. Can you please confirm this back to me? Once you've done this, I'll be able to check if we've received your details.
We'd be really sad to see you go if you decided to cancel and we'd love the opportunity to turn this experience around for you and help get your Apple Watch connected.
My Sim received an update just today weirdly and now my Apple Watch seems to be connected to the Vodafone network.
After being told on the phone via Vodafone customer services last week that I'd have to upgrade my contract to one that costs £32pm.....I'd more or less given up.
Why was I told that??....I guess I'll never know.
Anyway thanks for replying but all seems good atm.
