Buying Apple Watch and changing from Verizon to At&t

I am purchasing an Apple watch3 from a family member who has Verizon...obviously I have AT&T and I am in need of knowing if and how to change the service to my AT&T account as the Apple Watch has the data package...I am aware I would need to pay additional each month for AT&T to give me the data service

Re: Buying Apple Watch and changing from Verizon to At&t

Hey there @Zoejulybaby1,

 

We're here to point you in the right direction! Before you begin searching for a plan that fits your needs, we recommend checking if your device is eligible to be brought over. Be sure to visit our BYOD page to check if your wearable device is compatible with our network!

 

Once you confirm your eligibility, you can add the line for your wearable device from your myAT&T account! 

 

Let us know if you have any further questions!

 

Bobbie, AT&T Community Specialist

@Zoejulybaby1

Do you mean the family member is moving his phone to ATT?  

The Apple Watch will not work with cellular as a synced device unless both phinecand watch are on the same carriers postpaid services.  

Att uses number sync, Verizon uses number share.

@Zoejulybaby1 assuming you have an iPhone that supports the watch you should be able to do it (at least that's what Apple says). See the “Changing carriers” section in the https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207578
