Carriers Supporting Cellular Connections On Apple Watches

About a dozen wireless carriers in the U.S. offer cellular service for Apple Watches:1

  • Verizon
  • AT&T
  • T-Mobile
  • US Cellular
  • Xfinity Mobile
  • Spectrum Mobile
  • Visible
  • Bluegrass Cellular
  • C Spire
  • Cellcom
  • Appalachian Wireless
  • Carolina West Wireless

In most cases, service for an Apple Watch is available as an add-on that costs $10 per month. Typically, the add-on is only available to customers that have phone service on postpaid plans.

Best & Cheapest Apple Watch Plans

I’m only aware of two options for those looking to get a rate better than $10 per month:

  1. Visible, a flanker brand of Verizon, offers an Apple Watch add-on for $5 per month.
  2. Two of Verizon’s plans, the Get More Unlimited plan, include a 50% discount on connected device plans. Subscribers on these plans can apply that discount to Apple Watch service, bringing the cost of service down to $5 per month.


  1. Wing Alpha offered Apple Watch support at some point and may still. I haven’t listed Wing above. I’m suspicious Wing is and/or was reselling service from another provider.
