Number Share for Samsung

Can anyone shed some light on why only the Apple watch has number sharing under Optus in Australia for wearable devices?

I am waiting for the number share ability for Samsung to purchase an LTE Gear Classic, what is taking so long?

Hi,

Number share is feature which is enable only for Iphone and apple watch.

For Samsung mobile, we do not have any gear system which enable the number feature.

Thankyou for confirming my issue but the question was why has all the australian telecommunications providers chosen to only provide the number sharing service for the apple i watch in what looks like a blatant example of cartel conduct?

Hi, I would like to let you know that Apple watch comes with an  embedded SIM card called as rain which can only be activated for number share

Other smart watches does not have this features

That is the reason number is availed only apple watches

Are Optus going to have plans for the Samsung Galaxy smart watch that has been just announced for October release in Australia?

Good question, @Micgrech! I haven't heard anything at this point however this info is generally not shared until a few weeks before new releases. I'd keep an eye out on our website for further info closer to October.
