I have an existing iPhone sim plus an iPad sim. I now have an Optus bought Apple Watch 4. The Apple Watch is setup with number share and everything is working as expected. Optus supplied a sim card with the watch and I fail to see why it is needed as the watch has an e-sim. Anyone know why they supply a sim? I have not activated it, just sits in a cupboard! Can this sim be used in another device like a mobile broadband wifi device?
You can use it in another device but you'd have to select a plan for that said SIM. As the Apple Watch 4 doesn't need a SIM but they probably threw it in the box by force of habit rather than "need".
Thanks for the reply. Looking at my account info it has that the sim service number is already on a plan, $15 per month for 3GB data. The 3GB data allowance is added to my data pool. So my data pool consists of 3 service numbers, my mobile, iPad and the sim number that came with my Apple Watch. My wife and daughter also purchased the Apple Watch 4 through Optus and they also received a sim!
