Apple Watch - prepaid phone


i had an iPhone and Apple Watch connected with Optus. I have now switched to a Telstra network (but prepaid) for my phone but was wanting To be able to still connect my watch to my phone. My watch network is set up with Optus so obs this won’t work now my phone uses Telstra . Is there a way I can still use my watch? 

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Apple Watch - prepaid phone

You would need to change to a Post Paid Plan and addon Telstra OneNumber ($5 per month).


You would then need to set up your watch again so that it connected to OneNumber.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
