Answer:

Hi


Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) is not locked to any specific carrier and has a built-in eSIM that copies information from the iPhone's SIM card.


The built-in cellular features require a carrier plan for your iPhone that specifically includes support for Apple Watch, including the carrier activating the device on the plan:


Apple Watch - Carriers - Apple


Once the feature has been set up, your Apple Watch uses the same phone number as the paired iPhone.


Follow the instructions here to set up the built-in cellular feature:



If you need assistance, then I suggest that you contact your carrier in the first instance.
