The People are in Danger – We Need you John
John, we know you’ve been busy saving people from evil, but the Metropolis is in danger and we need your help.
Last week, as you know, AT&T announced NumberSync, a phone number-based solution to allow users to place calls and texts across multiple devices. This with the caveat that AT&T’s NumberSync will operate solely on the carrier’s wireless network with LTE-connected, registered devices.
This announcement came as no surprise, following the success of Apple’s Continuity service, which also enables users to call and text cross-device, so long as they are using exclusively Apple hardware and running iOS 8 or OS X 10.10 Yosemite or later, and that their devices be connected to an iPhone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
But wait, people want cross-device freedom. Not to be forced to buy a series of hardware and network subscriptions.
Now, a few hours after AT&T’s announcement and T-Mobile and Sprint declare they too will be working on their own version of the above cross-device continuity.
With users increasingly demanding the ability to continue their smartphone conversations cross-device, why is everyone building their own, limited and closed ecosystem.
How does this serve us, the users?
As your Operating Chief Mike Sievert says, with T-Mobile’s strategy to: “ask customers what they want and need, and then build it.” versus “AT&T’s is to build or buy things, and then try to convince customers they asked for it.”, please consider offering subscribers true, unadulterated smartphone continuity across any and all devices worldwide.
For instance, when a call comes in, it should ring on all the devices a user is logged in to, users should be able to send and receive their SMS straight from a computer, all contacts should be synced cross-device, users should be able to switch between multiple smartphones, etc., and this, regardless of OS, hardware or network.
In a world where we use more and more screens daily, complete cross-device smartphone continuity ensures both users and industry win.
