AT&T is readying NumberSync, a new feature that will allow its customers to share a single number across smartphones, tablets and other devices through its network.
The service, which will launch “fairly soon”, will be designed for its customers to own and use multiple devices that have built in wireless connections and connect to a primary phone number.
This means users can send or receive texts and calls from a number of devices through that same recognisable number.
The US operator said the service is network-based, meaning it will work “even if your primary phone is turned off or disconnected from the network”, and will also not be limited to one device or operating system.
