Apple Watch cellular

It’s been 4 days now since I bought my Apple Watch from the xfinity store and still cannot connect to the cellular service.  I tried to activate it myself when I got home and kept getting the uh oh screen so I called the number they gave me and the rep told me they are not equipped to handle activations (why do they give you this number if they can’t help) and I would need to bring it back to a store.  So I called the xfinity mobile tech support just because I figured the last rep didn’t want to do his job and the mobile rep told me same thing and to bring it to the store.  So I brought it to the store and they called their support and apple support with no fix and wasted now 6 hours of my life that I can’t get back talking to phone reps and store reps (store reps were super friendly and treated me very well) .  So like I said it’s been 4 days and still can’t use cellular feature even after pairing and re-pairing device putting it on WiFi and off WiFi and every other trick I read online that worked for others and I find this totally unacceptable that there is still no fix for this.  Up until now I have had no problem with xfinity mobile but this is a big problem to have and hopefully not get charged until this issue is fixed.  But if someone has any info on ways that worked for them I am all ears.

Re: Apple Watch cellular

Can a xfinity mid please read this and respond with some help, this is getting crazy with how long im without a main feature of the watch that i paid for. And dealing with reps who blame the store and say only the store employees can help and just get the run around cause they are either lazy, cant do their job or pawn me off on someone else.

I’m having the same issue. Spoken with four reps over two days with no resolution. I clicked your username but don’t see the option to send a message. Please help!

I tried again randomly yesterday afternoon and it worked. I literally did nothing different from the prior time it hadn’t worked. Also didn’t receive any response from XM that they had done anything. They need to get their act together.
