In regards to the Apple Watch cellular version, I received an SMS from Spark on 29/11, stating that they will be selling it soon and a link to register interest. On clicking through, it will be available for purchase from 06/12, and they will have a wearables plan called One Number costing $12.99 per month.

 

There was a further link to register interest though this was about interest in buying the cellular version of the watch, rather than signing up for One Number.

 

I've got a cellular version I purchased in Aus, so I'm hoping they will support that.

 

About time the cellular watch version was supported, though I'm not impressed with the monthly charge. In Aus, Telstra offer this for $5 per month. Hopefully some competition for the Spark offering arrives soon in NZ and we see a price drop (yeah right).

For those thinking of getting the Galaxy Fold, I can confirm that Spark's eSIM works fine and allows for dual SIM operation.

Curious if anyone who has a non listed device registered with Spark? I asked in store and they said there is a list they can and can't do but the pixel 3xl isn't on it. I'm not sure if he was just looking at the Samsung and iPhone list or if they had another one available internally.

Yeah, I got my Galaxy Fold working on Spark eSIM before it released in NZ. (Also AFAIK the fold still isn't on Spark's compatibility list).

 

However, I couldn't get it to work in store no matter what I tried. Went to two stores, talked to 3 salespeople and they tried 4 times. However, when I ordered a prepaid SIM online and asked for eSIM delivery, the eSIM they delivered to my email worked perfectly.

 

If you're moving a existing Spark service maybe try this then request a SIM swap onto the prepaid eSIM.

Weird, I'm trying to move from prepaid so not sure they'd move between Sims like that, but it would at least prove the concept of it does work. I may give live chat a try and see what they say, the guy in store want sure what to do with a phone not in sale in NZ.
