AT&T becomes the first carrier to link all of your devices to a single phone number

October 14th, 2015 at 12:00 PM
AT&T NumberSync Phone Number

AT&T announced a new service called NumberSync on Wednesday which will allow customers to attach a single phone number to all of their connected devices. Once the service launches, AT&T customers will be able to send and receive messages, make phone calls and more from any phone, tablet or wearable device, all using the same primary number.

The best part about NumberSync is that it doesn’t rely on Bluetooth or any other location-based technology in order to provide service to all of your devices. Instead, NumberSync will operate over AT&T’s network, which means that even if your main smartphone is turned off or disconnected entirely, you’ll still be able to use the service on other devices.

In a blog post, AT&T has listed a few use cases for the services, such as the ability to go on a jog with your wearable without having to lug your smartphone around with you. You can also text your friends from your tablet without having to explain who exactly is texting them.

It’s also worth noting that there’s no additional charge for this service. If you have four connected devices on an AT&T plan, you can give them all the same phone number without paying a penny more than what you’re currently paying.

NumberSync doesn’t have a set release date yet, but AT&T is hoping to begin including the service on new devices this holiday season.
