On May 31, every T-Mobile customer’s phone number will be upgraded to DIGITS for free—and customers can get another DIGITS line for just $10 a month with AutoPay. And, for a limited time, T-Mobile ONE Plus with taxes and fees included comes with an extra DIGITS line—at no extra cost.
“Phone numbers are so yesterday—DIGITS are now,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “Starting next week, T-Mobile doesn’t have phone numbers anymore—we have DIGITS. They’re your REAL T-Mobile phone number but with none of the old limits. DIGITS is another industry-shaking Un-carrier innovation aimed at changing wireless for good.”
On Wednesday, May 31, all T-Mobile phone numbers will automatically become DIGITS, and all T-Mobile customers can use their DIGITS on virtually any connected device—phone, tablet, smartwatch, computer and more. For example, if you want your phone calls to ring both your smartphone and your connected smartwatch, DIGITS can make that happen.
Anyone with T-Mobile ONE Plus can get an extra DIGITS Talk & Text line at no additional cost for as long as you keep Plus. Plus is a T-Mobile add-on that includes unlimited HD video streaming (US only), unlimited mobile hotspot with up to 10GB of high speed data, unlimited Gogo Wi-Fi on your smartphone for the full flight and more for $5 per month.
T-Mobile also touts the benefits of DIGITS for business.
With DIGITS, businesses can skip the headache and the costs of setting employees up with new devices and work numbers. Instead, businesses can now simply provide DIGITS lines to everyone. DIGITS will even work on phones from Verizon and AT&T. And, DIGITS is great for group or general business lines. Assign DIGITS as your Sales number so that, when it rings, everyone in Sales gets the call. Businesses can also keep those DIGITS—and all associated contacts and recent history—if an employee leaves.
Families can also use DIGITS to share a home number.
Families might want to use DIGITS to move a home number to everyone’s smartphones—so you can keep the number but get rid of that landline. Then, when the home phone rings, it rings everyone. Think of your DIGITS as the new family line, without the anchor to a wall in your house. There are 58 million households with landlines in the US today, and 43 percent of them say they’d cut the cord if they could keep that number.
Another suggested use is for privacy.
Use your extra DIGITS for any other situation where you may not want to pass along your personal number, like selling on Craigslist or dating or just signing up for things online. The possible uses for your extra DIGITS lines are virtually endless.
DIGITS is available starting May 31 at T-Mobile stores nationwide and online at www.t-mobile.com/getDIGITS.
