Apple Watch cellular issues

I just received a Apple Watch. I purchased it directly from xfinity. It will not connect to cellular, Apple can’t help me, and no one at xfinity can help me! I have spent 10 hours on the phone today. Tier 1, tier 2, and a supervisor. Apparently they say tier 3 can not speak on the phone and can only email other xfinity employees. No one can help! Can anyone here point me in the right direction?

Not sure if they have resolved your issue or what error messages you are receiving. However if they have not fixed your issue and the watch is showing in your account as if it is activated, request that they delete it from the system. Afterward, go back into the system and attempt to re-pair it to the cellular. It should work.

Actually, it is not resolved. It was escalated all the way up to the “swat team”, I guess they are tier 3 or something? They were suppose to call me by Tuesday they didn’t. I called today, A supervisor has told me that there is a “mass ticket” they are not calling anyone individually and I should just return the watch as there is no way to fix it. No watches can be activated.

Re: Apple Watch cellular issues

I'm sorry you're experiencing these issues. I went through all of that as well having to speak with the different tiers and managers with no call back. It was so frustating. I would attempt the method that I gave you as it seems to have been a common issue with most of the cellular phone companies (ATT, Verizon & T-Mobile) when they first brought these watches on board. I googled things to remedy the situation and saw that it worked. I believe that if you have it deleted from your account by a customer service agent and then you manually re add it again by starting the pairing and adding cellular process again, your issue will be resolved just as mine was. I know it is a headache as I had to go through 2 different agents because the first wouldn't delete my watch when I requested LOL. However, I have been using my watch for a week now with no issues. Once you get past that roadblock, things should go smoothly.
