    Cellular watches locked to countries' carriers ?

    Are cellular version of Apple Watches locked to their respective countries ? I was told that an Apple Watch (Series 5) bought in Dubai or US wouldn't work in India - that is, the cellular part. Only watches bought in India would have cellular working here. The GPS works worldwide.

    Other No Phone Dilemma

    I’ve had issues with all the major carriers and have finally cancelled my service, traded in my iPhone, and no longer own a smartphone of any make. For the last 3 1/2 months, I’ve been using an Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular service as my primary device on a Verizon plan, but recently found...

    Other H Chips and the Implication for W

    Apple changed the chip series name in the new AirPods from W to H, which presumably stands for headphones. Why? I think because Apple will be using the W (wireless) naming for their in-house cellular modem chips for iPhone. So this pretty much confirms it, right?

    Cellular or Wifi?

    I am wondering what is the reason to use a cellular over the wifi? In many countries you can rent a mifi cheaper than a cell + data plan so I'm wondering why do people choose a cellular model?

    Apple Watch 3 Series buying abroad

    Hi there, I live in the UK but will be in the USA next month. I had hoped to pick up a 3rd Generation Apple Watch, GPS Only (NO Cellular). Will this work with a UK bought and used iPhone? Can all features still be used - phone notifications when connected via bluetooth etc? Any help appreciated!

    Cellular S4 customers getting screwed

    by Apple and by their cellular carriers. First, Apple is charging $100 more for the exact same watch plus a cellular modem (which probably costs $2). For the S3 release, original pricing for the cellular model was $70 more than GPS alone BUT the cellular model also came with more storage (16 GB...

    Battery life with cellular

    If I buy an Apple Watch Series 4 with cellular, but keep cellular turned off, will I get the same battery life as with the non-cellular models? At first, I assumed the answer is Yes. But I just read that 911 works when there is no carrier plan, and even when cellular is disabled on the watch...
