Yesterday T-Mobile COO Mike Sievert teased that a big announcement was imminent, and now we know exactly what he was hinting at.

Digits is a new service from T-Mobile that lets you use the same phone number across devices. This means that you can use the same number across multiple internet-connected devices, including phones, tablets, PCs, and smartwatches, and your calls and texts will appear from the same number.

Digits will also let you use multiple numbers on the same device, with the goal of killing the need to carry a work phone and a personal phone.
