AT&T’s NumberSync Uses Same Number Across Devices

Posted by at 10:35 am on October 14, 2015

AT&T LogoAT&T today announced NumberSync, a tool that will allow multiple devices (phone, tablet, smartwatch) to rely on a single phone number.

The idea is to allow customers to make/receive phone calls and send/receive messages from the account holder’s primary phone number, rather than several different numbers like those often assigned to SIM-enabled devices even if they aren’t generally used for calls.

AT&T says the service can work across operating systems and hardware makers, and will function even if the primary device isn’t powered on. The service can consolidate voicemails into a single inbox, as well. NumberSync relies on AT&T network technology, not proximity-based tools like Bluetooth.

The carrier is working with handset vendors to ensure device compatibility. AT&T said the first device to support NumberSync will be available later this month, and more devices will become compatible over time.

AT&T is offering NumberSync for free
