Hi,

I asked this question 5-6 months back, I would like to use my Apple Watch3 LTE to make phone calls, etc on the VFNZ network.... can you advise if (and when) VFNZ will offer e-sim functionality and Numbersync capability as VFAust does, and as Spark does?

thanks

@Geer

Thanks for your post. Still no plans to offer at this point but will advise if/when this changes.

Cheers

Please can you give us the real reason not just we have no plans please be honest.

Agreed. Why isn’t this a priority? Its new technology - Apple Watch 3. Vodafone is usually at the front of such but they are this time letting us down. I expect from Vodafone - a apprantly leading telecomunications company to be providing the latest technology and support. 

 

I wish to purchase a Apple Watch 3 with Cellular and the expectation for that to work with my mobile plan as it does in other countries (even on vodafone australia).

Sadly, Vodafone has remained out of touch on this one since I first started asking about esim support over a year ago. The issue is still clearly shoved in the too-hard basket in spite of Vodafone supporting esims elsewhere and their competitors such as Spark doing so here.

 

Used to be a technology company, not sure what they are now.

@PeterWeb

 

Rather than the "too hard" basket, it's in the "under review" basket. The Apple Watch isn't sold here - other esim devices are available - hence review rather than roll out as in Australia and Germany.
