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.
T-Mobile’s take on this type of technology allows you to access your “DIGITS” number (calls, contacts, texts, and voicemails) on phones, tablets, wearables and computers. 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…)

T-Mobile’s Binge On, the opt-out video throttling service that most of us thought was shady garbage when first introduced, will now be a part of AT&T’s service under the name “Stream Saver.” The new feature will launch in early 2017.

The Galaxy Note 7 has been dead for almost a month now, but Samsung and its partners are still having to take extra measures to make sure every last device in the wild has been returned. One of those measures is through a software update that will limit the device’s battery while also constantly reminding the owner that it’s time to get rid of it. (more…)
