Yes. $10.00 per month after a 3 month free introductory period that Apple has with the 4 Major LTE carriers.

Only if you want cellular service on it...

 

($10 a month, first 3 free)

How much will AT&T charge for cellular on the Apple Watch Series 3 ?

I am planing to buy an Apple Watch series 3 and would like to get the cellular model but I don’t know how much AT&T would charge for it?

Well, $10 a month assuming you have an unlimited or Mobile Share Advantage Plan.  I have a Mobile Share Value plan and they say that is not eligible to add a watch.  So I would need to move to a Mobile Share Advantage plan and pay $5 extra per phone (x4 phones) plus the $10 a month for the watch.  Smiley Mad

 

Very tricky way to force to move to a more expensive plan.

 

Edit: Forgot to say that the watch also works with the unlimited plans, but those are even more expensive.

Bull cookies.  You can add the watch for $10.  Anyone tells you otherwise is lying.  

Wearables are $10 on any plan except an old plan with individual data plans.

@lizdance40

I am only quoting the AT&T website (and I confirmed it with an agent by chat).  Just go to https://www.att.com/shop/apple-watch.html and select the "Setup and Support" tab.  It says:

 

Eligible iPhone plans:

  • AT&T Unlimited Plus℠
  • AT&T Unlimited Choice℠
  • Mobile Share Advantage℠

Re: Apple Watch series 3 GPS+Cellular, service plan?

@AtlantaKC  Your right.  Those rotten....

Dont do it.   There is no reason it won't work on the MSV plan, they just won't allow it.  

Foolish.  If someone has to give up the MSV plan, there is no reason to stay with ATT anymore. The biggest reason I stay is a well priced plan.  

😡😡😡

Assuming that a AT&T prepaid phone is probably a no go was well for the LTE plan?

@AtlantaKC @lizdance40 The web site is only going to list current plans, not grandfathered plans. I'm not sure I would accept what the chat agent said, it may be possible to add to the Mobile Share Value plan. @ATTMobilityCare can you confirm whether the new IWatch can be added to a Mobile Share Value plan?
