Re: Apple Watch cellular

Hi @Watsit

 

Thanks for posting on our community forum!

 

Unfortunately we do not currently offer Virgin ESIM's, we will be sure to make our customers aware if this becomes a possibility in the future.

Re: Apple Watch cellular

Also interested in this. Are there any plans to support this at all? Am I able to switch to another provider if I’m still in contract, on account of Virgin not offering services that are pretty industry standard by now?

Hi @adamharris

 

Thanks for posting on our community forum!

 

There isn't currently any known plans and unfortunately we wouldn't be able to let you exit your contract for free due to not supporting ESIM's, as this was not an option in the contract itself.

Re: Apple Watch cellular

Thanks for the reply. That’s terribly inflexible isn’t it? No doubt I’ll factor that into my renewal decision for tv, broadband and mobile. I didn’t realise you were only play acting in the mobile space when I signed up for the 130 a month renewal

Re: Apple Watch cellular

Only O2, EE and Vodafone support the Apple Watch

Virgin is an MNVO and no MNVOs in the UK support the watch 

If you want all the bells and whistles then you need one of those 3 mentioned and pay accordingly.
