I had chatted with an Xfinity representative a month ago who confirmed that Xfinity Mobile supports the new Family Setup for Apple Watch GPS + Cellular. I purchased an Apple Watch for my daughter only to find out that Xfinity Mobile doesn't support Family Setup. This is unfortunate; as we wanted to be able to communicate with her outside the home.
Is Xfinity Mobile planning to support this in the future? Is there a proposed time-frame?
Below is a link to carriers who support family setup:
I don't see any MVNOs in the list, so I doubt that XM will provide family setup anytime soon, if ever. XM doesn't even support any watches other than Apple watches.
Apparently there is at least one recent solution available from Truphone, and maybe even other providers? It's $9.99 per month for unlimited data, voice, and SMS. See below:
If you are really brave and have eligible watches, then go for it, and let the rest of know if you are successful.
