APPLE watch 3 cellular cant be on a prepaid plan period.  You would need to get new postpaid service with att to get the watch which will cost about 100 a month plus tax or around that.

{edited for word filter evasion} att if you think that I’m going to change my prepaid plan to a contract, I had a contract for like 5 years and by the time I realized I waste a ton of money, you guys should fix this issue and make the Apple Watch active to a prepaid plan, remember that there is more prepaid customers than contracts, so do the math

No there are more postpaid plans than prepaid plans sorry thats the facts....  see the table below...  But there are only 15.1 milllion prepaid customers and there are 77.4 million postpaid customers....  So if you have to wounder why there is no apple watch plan for prepaid your looking at it.  Then there is the fact that numbersync wont work with prepaid.

Nobody said anything about going under contract. Post paid does not mean contract

Since your late to the party... Service Contracts and ETFs are gone.  The only carrier with service contracts anymore is Sprint.

 I pay full price for phones and tablets, (not from ATT) and I can leave any time I want, just like you can.  

Unlike you, I get full services and a group rate on 6 lines, $181 a month (that’s $31 per line). 

The only thing that can tie you to a carrier is using the installment option or accepting any free devices, which do come with contracts.  If you just buy your stuff at full price, your free to go with nothing more than paying the last month of service, which is billed after use, rather than before.

BTW, adding a watch to any plan is $10 a month plus taxes, which tax like a phone line.
