What kind of data plan are the carriers attaching to the watch?

    Just curious about a couple of things....

    First, is the watch plan unlimited, or "unlimited", meaning yes we can stream music from Apple music, but it's limited to 128 Kbps, rather than full fidelity (256 for Apple Music). These days, with net neutrality on it's deathbed, it's hard to tell.

    I totally expect the plan to be unlimited, rather than a set number of megabytes per month, but the flavor of unlimited is most concerning to me. I remember going from 128 to 256 was a larger jump than I thought it would be.

    The carriers are not attaching a new data plan to the watch, it pulls from current mobile data plan pool.

    Gotcha.... so, for Tmobile, I have 2 lines, me and the wife.

    I guess it "attaches" to whichever line I want? In this case, it would be my line, and feed from my data bucket?

    Thanks for the info.

    Well, one DOES have to pay another 10$ a month.
