T-Mobile just revealed its answer to AT&T’s NumberSync technology, which lets customers use one phone number across all their connected devices. T-Mobile’s version is called Digits and it will launch in a limited, opt-in customer beta beginning today before rolling out to everyone early next year.
“You can make and take calls and texts on whatever device is most convenient,” the company said in its press release. “Just log in and, bam, your call history, messages and even voicemail are all there. And it’s always your same number, so when you call or text from another device, it shows up as you.”
When it leaves beta, Digits will cost an extra monthly fee, but T-Mobile isn’t revealing pricing today.
“This is not going to be treated as adding another line to your account,” said COO Mike Sievert. “Expect us to be disruptive here.”
