When is Apple Watch support coming?
I want to buy one of the new cellular models. So far only Bell and Telus are supporting. What about Fido!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I moved your post to this thread as it deals with the same topic.
I can confirm that Fido will not carry Apple Watch at launch. This will be something we look at as we build system functionality to support this technology. You can definitely still buy Apple Watch Series 3, both the cellular and non-cellular version and bring it to Fido. You’ll be able to pair with a compatible iPhone using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, but not our LTE network. You can check the most recent compatibility on Apple's website.
Hope this helps
To use Apple Watch series 3, carriers need to modify their networks in order to support the integrated sim. However, Rogers and Fido have not done so and have not announced any plans. Bell and Telus awill
work however there is no support for Virgin or Koodo either.
I've been with Fido since they first arrived in the Lower Mainland well over a decade ago (apart from a brief period when I had no cell phone at all.
I have purchased the Watch 3 with LTE, and if Fido doesn't move to support it, I will be moving to another carrier also. I can't imagine they would be so shortsighted as to have NO intention of supporting this device at all... I'm sure it's just a matter of time. Hopefully, not too much time...
Hi, any update on when the cellular version of the Apple Watch will be supported, or if it even will be? I expect some good Black Friday plans being offered by Telus and Bell. With no contract to tie me, I may just go too.
Well looks like after being with Fido for 18 years I will be switching to Bell in the next couple of months when My and my wifes Fido plan is up for renewal.
Very short sighted of Fido and Rogers not to jump on this and to give us no info of when they plan to get with it.
I just bought the Apple Watch 3 with cellular. My hope was that Fido would eventually support it. I have 3 people on my account and soon to have a teenager make it 4. It is sounding like Fido is not interested in what their customers want. I guess I will be shopping for a new carrier soon.
