Do I need to switch my iPhone cell provider to use Apple Watch?

I recently purchased an Apple Series 8 watch through AT&T. My iPhone’s service is through Verizon, so once I was setting up my watch I realized I couldn’t use them together (being able to receive texts and calls that come through my iPhone on my watch when I leave my phone at home) 

I wanted to know, should I switch my phone plan to AT&T? Will I then be able to use the watch the way I want to?

Hey A7xAlyssa


The answer to you question would be a yes. If you were to switch your phone plan over to AT&T, you will be able to receive texts and calls through your watch if you left your phone at the house.


If you have any more question please reach back out to us.
