Hello, this question may have already been asked but I'm new here and didn't see it.  Truth is I didn't do an indepth search so if someone could just provide the answer I would really appreciate it.  Trying to find out on the Unlimited plan, what the "add on" cost will be per month for adding the Series 3 iWatch (now using LTE).

Thanks

You've come to the right place for help. I can certainly understand the importance of making sure you know the cost of adding the Apple Watch Series 3 to your plan. First, I want to apologize for all the conflicting information you have received. Let me clarify.

The Apple Watch Series 3 cannot be purchased or activated as a standalone accessory from Verizon. The Apple Watch Series 3 must be tied to service at the time of purchase. It was designed by Apple to only work in NumberShare mode (unlike the Samsung Gears S3) and must be activated at the point of sale with an active compatible iPhone (iPhone X, iPhone 8/8Plus, iPhone 7/7Plus, iPhone 6/6S/6Plus/6S Plus, and iPhone SE).

The cost of NumberShare for the Apple Watch Series 3 is $10 a month. I trust this has fully address your concern. Keep us posted if you need further assistance of have any additional questions.

It should be $5/month if you use NumberShare to associate it with a device already active on your account.

That is a great question. The total price of a connected device such as an Apple Watch Series 3 is $20 as a standalone device, and $10 with NumberShare. This is the price for both Verizon Unlimited and Beyond Unlimited/Go Unlimited plans. Let us know if you have any further questions.

Will you be updating the NumberShare FAQ, as your post is in direct contradiction to what you have listed in those FAQ:

Or is the Apple Watch series 3 going to be more expensive to use NumberShare than other connected smartwatches????

However, as rcschnoor​ mentioned, the page is showing conflicting information in which we will soon get updated.

Does this mean it would be only $5/month if not on an unlimited data plan?

Or is my connected device going to go up from $5 to $10 in the near future?

rcschnoor​, you will not have to worry about the cost of your connected device to go up.  This pricing is only applicable to connected devices with voice such as the Samsung Gear S3 or the Apple Watch Series 3.

While it may not be compatible with Verizon's NumberShare, the Samsung Gear S2 Classic DOES have a cellular connection and CAN send/receive phone calls when not connected via bluetooth with a smartphone.
