Apple Watch from another carrier.

I have an iPhone XS on a plan with Optus and my family just gave me a gift of an Apple Watch series 4 but it’s from Telstra. I was wondering if it’s possible to change the carrier to Optus? Theres no plan attached to the watch as it’s been purchased outright. 

I have read that the carriers need to be the same to use the cellular features of the watch and there’s conflicting info about it being possible to change the carrier of the watch.

Re: Apple Watch from another carrier.

Hi Sarahjay84, 


You don't need to have a carrier for your watch to use number share, this feature uses the same service as your mobile and a separate service is not needed.
