    Hey everyone,

    Looking to see if it’s possible to buy an S3, activate, and pair it to my personal line, then switch the watch over to my work phone, which is on a company account. Same carrier, Verizon. Thanks.

    You will need the ability to make changes to the account just like with activating/removing a regular handset.

    Spoke to the guy that manages our business account in Australia. Sounds like Telstra may allow individuals to set up an account to pay for the LTE watch service separately. Will find out when my watch arrives this week.

    The first part is fine on your personal line. Switching your watch over to your work phone is more complex or impossible in most cases.

    Key Restriction: Your iPhone and watch have to be on the same post paid billing account.

    To use your watch with your work phone, you need the ability to add the $10 watch plan to the account that your work phone is on. Do you manage your Companies Verizon account or will your Account manger add the $10 watch plan to the corporate account?

    My company’s IT is trying to figure out if at&t will allow the $10 monthly access fee to be billed to a personal account while still having the same number of the company phone.
