It’s says in that article that number share can not be turned off on Apple Watch, it must be disconnected or paired with another iPhone. what does it mean by disconnecte?
Have you considered get your child a basic phone instead?
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
you are asking if the watch can be used as a stand alone device. It was not designed so, the answer is no.
Apple has no interest in eliminating its phone from the equation.
Good you ask, we know it is important to know the details and options on your Apple watch and we want to provide you with the correct information. The service itself of Number Share cannot be disabled from the watch settings itself. To disable this option you need to sign into your my verizon account. Does this help clarify your concern?

So once I disable this in my Verizon account, I can set my Apple Watch up and when I’m done it will have a different phone number than the phone itself?
No, the setup is done prior to the number share feature being disabled in the account. But once disabled, the Apple Watch would only have the different phone number programmed and assigned to it.
With the number share disabled, the watch would no longer be able to be used for calls, messages or data since it would not be linked to your iPhone anymore.
Yeah... I’m starting to suspect they have bots on the VZW side as the responses don’t seem to Indicate they understand the question.
