T-Mobile is bringing that heat again, offering AT&T customers yet another reason to possibly ditch their carrier.

T-Mobile’s New DIGITS is the Latest 1-Number to Rule Them All Idea

This morning, T-Mobile took the wraps off its latest technology introduction, DIGITS. The idea here is very much Google Voice meets AT&T’s NumberSync in that you get to use a single phone number (your “DIGITS”) across multiple devices and have additional phone numbers funnel through it.

You can even have it setup to funnel through an old flip phone. T-Mobile says that they are taking this 1-number to rule them all idea further by letting customers attach multiple T-Mobile numbers on the same device. That means accessing numbers from work, home, and a personal line on a single smartphone.  (more…)
