T-Mobile today announced DIGITS, a new service that will allow your T-Mobile number work across virtually all your connected devices—phones, tablets, wearables and computers. DIGITS also lets you put multiple T-Mobile numbers on the same device, so you can combine work, home and personal numbers on a single smartphone.
DIGITS marks the first time customers can get a complete solution that lights up numbers on virtually any Internet-connected device, lets you use multiple numbers on one device and delivers carrier-grade calling. DIGITS prioritizes calls from your phone over other data so calls are more reliable with crystal clear HD voice quality and full mobility. That’s because DIGITS is your real wireless number with real wireless calling – not a best-efforts data connection like you get with over-the-top (OTT) Internet calling services.
Starting today, T-Mobile customers can sign up to participate in the DIGITS limited beta for free. Active T-Mobile postpaid customers (Simple Choice and T-Mobile ONE on individual and family accounts) can join the beta, and during the beta, they’ll need Android 5.0 and newer; iOS 9.0 and newer; or Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome (Mac and PC).
“Phones today are nothing like they were just a decade ago, but the phone number has basically stayed the same forever. It’s time to shake things up!” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “DIGITS works just like your T-Mobile phone number, except it is way more powerful. DIGITS works across virtually ALL your devices, and those devices can have multiple numbers on them. And this is my favorite part: you can even use DIGITS on Verizon, AT&T and other smartphones!”
