T-Mobile DIGITS sets your mobile number free starting on May 31st

19


Last December, T-Mobile introduced DIGITS. This was a beta program that allowed you to share your mobile number with other connected devices. It also allowed more than one phone number to reach your mobile handset. Today, T-Mobile announced that it is taking the beta label off of the program. Starting on May 31st, the phone numbers belonging to every T-Mobile customer will be upgraded to DIGITS for free. A second DIGITS line can be added for $10 a month using Auto Pay.

Starting on May 31st, you can setup DIGITS so that when someone calls your T-Mobile phone, your connected smartwatch/tablet/computer also rings. With DIGITS, you can also use your laptap or tablet to send out a text. And for a limited time, anyone signing up for a T-Mobile One Plus plan with taxes and fees included, will get another DIGITS line for free. T-Mobile One Plus includes unlimited talk, text and high-speed data. Unlimited video is steamed in HD (U.S. only) and 10GB of high speed internet is available monthly from the T-Mobile hot spots that dot the land.

For business users, DIGITS allows a company to quickly set up a new employee with one number to cover all of his corporate devices. Consumers can replace a home landline with DIGITS. According to T-Mobile, 58 million American households still have a landline, with 43% saying that they would eliminate the line if they could. And anytime the need arises to hand out a phone number, you can play it safe by giving out the DIGITS number.
