Apple has nothing to do with this issue. Its a cellular carrier issue, not Apple. Cricket needs to add the functionality. Cricket also needs to add dual sim support. Cricket sells the Apple VS and XS Max but lacks the dual number feature.
After seeing all the messages, it is sad to see that cricket has not been able to solve this issue, nor have the decency to address our concerns and reply to us with updates. Please cricket, it has been a long time customers have asked for this. SUPPORT APPLE WATCH CONNECTIVITY!
