After the apple announcement I noticed that the Fido site has the new iphone on the main page...does thie mean that e-sims will be supported and I can add my watch?
Solved! Go to Solution.
We will not support the Apple Watch for now. We expect a lot of excitement around the new iPhone models and that's what we're focusing on! Although it's not compatible with our LTE network, you can still buy the Apple Watch and pair it with a compatible iPhone using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi! Check out apple.com/ca/watch for more details
We are not interested in hearing that you will send it to a team. We want to hear from someone we can make decisions. Enough of talk and team reply. I understand you can only reference to a script. We do not want the corporate answer, we want hard direct answers. Get someone on this forum who can make decisions its simple give us a date you will roll out Apple Watch support or tell us you cannot and will not support Apple Watch. A team making sections for a year needs to be fired from their job they are not doing a good job.we want answers not corporate run around.!!!!!!
It really is a shame, I've been with Fido for 7+ years, now I have to leave it just because they won't support the apple watch. It's really disappointing, I've been consistently checking the forum for 7+ months and waited specifically for the Series 4 in hopes they would support. I really don't want to leave, but there's no point for me to have a cellular watch that I can't use!
Thanks for your feedback Jet_pilot! As much as I would like to give you a more clear answer, we have already given to you the information available to us regarding this. The only thing possible to do now, is to stay tuned for any upcoming updates.
It'll be very unfortunate to see you leave also Assyrian and I really wish there was I can do regarding the Apple watch right now. It's also possible to connect it with the Bluetooth connection if you'd like! Have you considered this option perhaps?
After waiting for over a year for LTE support for Apple Watch, starting to get tired of the game. Time to go a a provider that take costumers sseriously and keeps up with technology. All the major providers already provide the service.
Customers can send a confirmation, move to another provider.
We understand how important the needs and wants of our customers are and this means that we will forward your comments towards the team in charge. We'll make sure to tell them that our customers are interested in this product.
As mentioned by Pierre above, we can't confirm anything right now since we can't know for sure about the services that haven't been confirmed yet.
I understand that this uncertainty is not ideal and rest assured that we will keep you and the community updated!
It's hard to understand when Fido is owned by Rogers (this is no secret), and Rogers supports the cellular watches now. So why cant this be adopted to Fido since all the celluar services are shared? It would be great to have a clear technical answer as to why this can't happen, my guess is that it has to do with money.
