Answer:

Hi


To set up the built-in cellular feature on Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular), you need a service plan from your iPhone that includes support for the watch, including the carrier activating the watch on the service plan.


Supported carriers are detailed here:


Apple Watch - Carriers - Apple


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



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


If the issue persists, then, depending on your carrier's advice, I suggest that you next contact Apple Support (mail-in service may be available, if required), make a Genius Bar reservation or visit an Apple Authorised Service Provider for assistance:
