T-Mobile Unveils DIGITS for All Connected Devices
      #49754 - 12/07/16 07:14 PM

T-Mobile today unveiled DIGITS and opened up a limited customer beta of this new technology that ends the century-old telecom limit of one number locked to one phone. With DIGITS, your T-Mobile number works across virtually all your connected devices including phones, tablets, wearables and computers. And, in another Un-carrier first, DIGITS lets customers put multiple T-Mobile numbers on the same device, so you can combine work, home and personal numbers on a single smartphone. Here's more info:



DIGITS 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 HD voice quality and full mobility. That's because DIGITS is your real wireless number with real wireless calling, not over-the-top (OTT) Internet calling services.

DIGITS: Overview

DIGITS allows you to make and take calls and texts on whatever device is most convenient. Just log in and 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.

DIGITS will also let you put multiple numbers on one device - and seamlessly switch back and forth between your numbers. So if you juggle identical phones with work and personal numbers, you can stop paying for two devices, two plans and two times the network access fees. And, you'll never have to compromise your security by giving out your personal number because you can use an extra set of DIGITS any time you don't want to give out your primary phone number.

For businesses, DIGITS means they can finally move to a mobile-ONLY workforce. Businesses can give their employees DIGITS to use on their personal smartphones - even if those phones are on AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. Businesses can save millions spent on ancient desk phones and give employees and customers a better experience with DIGITS. You'll be able to share DIGITS among employees, so your entire sales team can get both calls and texts to your company's sales line - no more missed sales calls. And if an employee leaves, the business will be able to keep the employee's DIGITS number along with any business contacts and relationships.

How does DIGITS work:

DIGITS couldn't be easier to use. In fact, it's already built natively into the newest Samsung smartphones (Note 5 and Galaxy S6 and later), thanks to joint development between T-Mobile and Samsung. Once customers get an extra set of DIGITS from T-Mobile, they can just open up the dialer and pick the number they want to use.

T-Mobile is already working with other device makers to integrate DIGITS natively into their devices. Until then, DIGITS is available through an app on Apple's App Store and Google Play as well as via browsers on PCs or Mac computers.

Availability

Starting today, T-Mobile customers can sign up to participate in the DIGITS limited beta for free. This is the first time a major US mobile carrier has debuted a new technology through a beta program.

After customers register for the DIGITS beta, T-mobile support team will help them get on-boarded with DIGITS. During the beta, customers can help shape the final version of DIGITS, which will launch commercially early next year, with their feedback.

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).
