T-Mobile Digits and #GetOutoftheRed officially launch today

tmobiledigitslogo

Today’s a big day for T-Mobile because two major launches happening: one for existing customers, and one for non-T-Mo consumers.

T-Mobile Digits is now live for customers on the Un-carrier. With Digits, you can make your phone number ring on multiple devices, including Android and iOS smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, and PCs. This means that you can make calls and send texts using these devices.

You can also get additional Digits numbers and have them ring a single device. For example, you can have separate phone numbers for work and for personal use and have them both ring a single smartphone.

Starting today, your T-Mobile phone number is a Digits number. You can get an additional Digits line for $10 per month with AutoPay, but for a limited time, customers on a T-Mobile One taxes-and-fees-included plan with the $5 T-Mobile One Plus add-on will get an extra Digits line for free. Additionally, T-Mobile customers that took part in the Digits beta will get a free Digits line.

T-Mobile offers Digits apps for Android and iOS so that you can access your Digits number on them. With these apps, you can even use a Digits number on a non-T-Mobile device. Digits functionality is built into the Galaxy S8 and S8+, Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and edge+, and Galaxy Note 5. You can access Digits from a PC by pointing your browser at this website.

Meanwhile, T-Mobile is also kicking off its #GetOutoftheRed promotion today. Verizon customers can switch to T-Mobile and not only get their remaining phone payments covered by T-Mo, but they can also keep their phone and use it on T-Mobile if they’d like. T-Mobile will issue a prepaid MasterCard card to cover the remaining cost of your device.

The phones that qualify for the #GetOutoftheRed promo include the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Google Pixel, and Google Pixel XL. Customers that want to take advantage of this deal will also need to enroll in T-Mobile’s Premium Device Protection Plus insurance plan, which is priced at $15 per month.

    I believe I read somewhere that if we beta tested for digits, we would get a free DIGITS line. Does anyone know where to obtain if so?

    • Fernando N.

      I would like to know this too

        An email has been sent

        Dear Beta Customer,

        Thank you again for participating in the DIGITS beta program! Starting today DIGITS is available to all T-Mobile customers!

        Last week we told you that DIGITS beta customers like you can keep your DIGITS beta lines and continue to use them FREE of charge except taxes and fees unless you are on a “taxes and fees included” plan. Now you can take advantage of this special offer by claiming your FREE DIGITS lines with a few simple steps.

        Go to promotions.t-mobile.com
        Enter the phone number of your DIGITS beta line (this is the phone number you received when you registered for the beta program. You can find it on your bill or on mydigits.t-mobile.com)
        Enter your account PIN (the last 4 digits of your SSN or your personal code)
        Enter this promotional code: BETATHANKS
        Submit to claim your DIGITS
        Once you submit your request, we will take care of the rest! You can continue to use your DIGITS beta lines for FREE of charge, but taxes and fees will appear on your bill starting the next billing cycle unless you are on a “taxes and fees included” plan. Please note this special offer ends on 6/30/2017, so act today!

        If you don’t want to keep your DIGITS beta lines, no action is needed. You can continue to use your beta lines free of charge till it is removed from your account by 8/31/2017. You will also receive a confirmation message once the beta lines have been removed from your account.

        I’m tweeting with T-Force, they are giving me a free Digits line for free (virtual number) just have to pay taxes on it… I already have 4 google voice numbers, not sure if I should get it …

  • TaekwonBo

    Trying to see how my other lines become a digits line. I cant seem to find the option to include them. If anyone knows please share.

    • thepanttherlady

      All lines need to have an online T-Mobile ID to have digits. Once you register them with online ID’s it should take 2-4 hours to show up so you can enable it.

    • Ahmad Bilal

      You can manage it from mydigits.t-mobile.com.

      • thepanttherlady

        Each line still needs to be registered or you can’t manage it.

  • stuman19741974 .

    I did the beta test and they had sent me a duplicate SIM. Worked fine in my extra phone or tablet. Looks like I get to keep it and just pay the monthly tax.

    For the other 4 family member lines, if they want to use DIGITS so they can text on their Windows laptops or tablets or whatever, do they each then need to create a new T-Mobile username and password? Or do I have to manage/login for each of them since I am the primary account holder? The latter would be a pain in the butt, and I don’t want to screw up anything with my account. Thanks.

    • thepanttherlady

      My conversation with T-Mobile tech support earlier confirmed each line needs to have their own T-Mobile username/password. As the primary account holder, you’ll be able to manage the lines once they’re registered.

      What I don’t like about this is that the primary account holder (and possibly those that have full access) are able to see everyone’s texts, listen to voicemails etc. Hopefully this is changed soon but what a way to track the kids and spouse if you’re so inclined. LOL

      • stuman19741974 .

        Well, since I am the primary account holder, that’s fine by me (since I have 2 teenage kids on the account)! :)

        • thepanttherlady

          Agreed in that regard. I have a 25 year old on this account with full access. Don’t need her all in my business.

        • Mike

          U don’t want her to find out your a super freak

        • thepanttherlady

          Great. Now that song is stuck in my head! LOL

        • Eric Harlow

          too funny haha!!

        • Chicago Pena

          She’s a very freaky girl! You don’t want take home to mutha! Super freak super freak

  • BreakingData

    Here is the support doc for those of us who were in the beta

    https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-35672

  • JP

    For those that were on beta – anyone else having problems taking advantage promo? Getting message: There were no promotions that matched your search criteria

    • Fernando N.

      I got the email with the instructions to keep the DIGITS line for free but I’m getting the same error message …. “There were no promotions that matched your search criteria”

      Any one has been lucky and processed the promo ?

  • CAL_08

    Why does this require location services on my phone, but nothing is needed is used from a PC?

  • stuman19741974 .

    Taxes/Fees: During the beta test, my DIGITS duplicate SIM only had $0.89 each month in taxes and fees (then also got a credit of that same $0.89 each month for being part of the beta). Has anyone confirmed if that is the same taxes/fee rate that will continue outside of the beta? My normal phone lines have over $4/mo in taxes/fees. But my tablet lines are only a little over a buck.

    P.S.: I am on Simple Choice, not T-Mobile One.

  • Mike Thaler

    I skimmed thru messages here. Is there a complete online “users manual” on how to use this feature?

  • WalkmanJG

    Okay so how in the world do you get the “free” digits number that you’re supposed to get with T-Mobile One Plus? Or am I misunderstanding the free promo running right now? I’m a T-Moble One Plus customer right now…

    • Jay

      In the article it says your existing # is your digits #, you can use it with any other device connected to the internet

  • Chapimex

    WARNING: Is it really free??? I do NOT have t-mobile one, nor did I participate in the Beta program. Apparently though, all current customers now have free digit lines –>

    ” All your existing T-Mobile numbers are now DIGITS lines. You can use them for free on any compatible internet-connected device via the DIGITS app or on phones with the DIGITS functionality built in.”

    But the small text at the bottom seems contradictory –>

    “Without T-Mobile ONE Plus/ONE Plus International, free DIGITS Talk & Text line may increase to $10 with AutoPay, $15 without, after 30 days unless you call 611 to cancel your free DIGITS Talk & Text line.”

    • BreakingData

      I believe that is for additional digit lines outside of the lines included with your plan.

      • Chapimex

        Thanks for chiming in. That would indeed make sense if it was talking about additional lines outside the plan.

    • steveb944

      Hmm that’s worrisome considering it states the FREE line.

      • Chapimex

        for real. I’ll have to call them to make sure, just need to find some time to do that.

  • M H

    Added it then canceled it after I didn’t want to pay for another line!

  • DHar Harr

    Does this work for landlines? Mom wants to know if she can get rid of her 20+ yr old land line but keep the number with a cheaper option. Digits seems like a convenient and cheap option.

    • Corey Jalette

      Yes it does.

    • Casey

      Port that land line to a prepaid mobile line, then port it to Google Voice. You can have calls to that number ring her cell or buy an Obihai box and give her a free home phone. http://a.co/cpGvxwu

      • DHar Harr

        Ooh, very nice. I did not know land lines could be ported to mobile. I will have to look into this. Thank you

        • Casey

          There is a one time fee of $20 to port a number into Google Voice.

        • DHar Harr

          Not a big deal. $20 one time vs $35+/mo is a no brainer. Thanks for the heads up.

  • Corey Jalette

    2/100 deal ended today. Back up to 2/120.

  • I get the job done from ease of my own home, with simple jobs that merely normally requires from you a Desktop and also on-line connection and I am happier than ever… After six months time with this project and i got remunerated in whole 36 thousand us dollars… Basically I make up nearly 80 bucks/hr and work for three to four hours time day after day.And remarkable thing with this task is usually that you can control time and effort when you do the job and for just how long as you wish for and you generate a paycheck each and every week.—–>>>> VZTURL.COM/bnk55

    “Starting today, your T-Mobile phone number is a Digits number”

    Doesn’t seem that way unless you have a One plan. I expected better information from TmoNews.

    From the terms:

    DIGITS Talk & Text: Qualifying plan required. Limited-time offer; subject to change. Compatible device and qualifying service required. 1 non-DIGITS line required.

  • SirStephenH

    I wonder if existing tablet numbers can also be used as free Digits numbers.

  • bkat11

    I tried with my watch and phone…messed up my S8 had to get a new phone and get rid of digits. I would only recommend using on phones not phones and watches
