Since the days of Alexander Graham Bell, the standard has been one number for one phone. That stayed true even through the introduction of the smartphone.
T-Mobile debuted a new program on Wednesday that allows multiple numbers to be used on a single smartphone.
Called DIGITS, the program also allows for one number to be used across a variety of different connected devices including wearables.
T-Mobile said that the new program is also available on Verizon and AT&T smartphones.
T-Mobile CEO John Legere announced the new offer with his usual enthusiasm.
