The T-Mobile DIGITS application lets you access your phone number and related information (call logs and messages) on virtually any iOS (10.0 and above) device without needing a SIM card associated with the number. You can use this application to place voice calls, send and receive instant messages using single and multiple lines.
Ratings and Reviews
Really not good.
I gave them a second star for effort, because they do update this app quite frequently. Unfortunately with each update, it brings a new bug or doesn’t do anything to help with the stability of the app. The current version (2.0.22) doesn’t like to show that messages or voicemails have been read without coercing it. Then it stopped sending texts with it just stuck at “sending” and when I tried to fix it by uninstalling and clearing all data, it constantly kept telling me over and over that my line couldn’t be activated. After the 10th try, I finally closed the app out, reopened it and saw that it did actually activate my line. The issues with unread messages still applies, and if it isn’t that problem, it’s usually some other issue with text threads disappearing, messages syncing with a delay, my line going inactive and not reactivating unless I force close or sign out and back in, etc. Luckily I only use this with my main number to have all my texts on more than one device, because I wouldn’t want to rely on this for anything else. I really like the functionality of this app, I just wish it actually worked consistently.
Developer Response ,
Please update to the latest release 1.1.8 as there are sync issues fixed within this latest release.
Problems after problems, can I give it a negative star??
I’ve had Digits since December of 2017. Since day 1, it’s been one problem after another. You’d think that after 1+ years, they’d improve the app and the purpose of its use. I use this for work and 3/4 of the time, it stalls, freezes, suddenly quits, “line not active” pops up, or when I log out and back in, it shows all my read messages as unread so I end up having 90+ unread messages that I now have to go back and “read”. The voicemail feature is also whack; can’t delete voicemails after reviewing... some days it work and some days it doesn’t. I’ve even had ALL of my texts deleted and vanished therefore having to start all over. I’ve called at least 1-2 times a week since having Digits and it’s always been the same “oh, we are so sorry for your frustration with this, we are working hard to improve the app”. So many problems, that I’ve eventually stopped calling it in. Of course, now I can’t delete it because all of my staff have my # and I don’t want to get a new #/phone. Digits is useless. If you don’t have it yet, please save yourself some sanity and DO NOT DOWNLOAD DIGITS.
I am livid...
WHY DID I TRUST T-MOBILE?! when I asked them why the reviews were so awful they responded with “oh it’s a low rating because the app is new and not many people have reviewed it yet!” So I SPECIFICALLY ASKED “honestly, are there a lot of issues with digits, because if there are, I’d rather just get a separate business phone.” Lol. They told me the app is “GREAT! No common issues!” Well great. I JUST STARTED A SMALL BUSINESS. MY DIGITS NUMBER IS ON MY VEHICLE/WEBSITE/BUSINESS CARDS and come to find out, people have been trying to inquire my services but are complaining that I don’t respond! SOMETIMES I get an alert about a missed call or message, but when I go to retrieve it, everything is deleted. I even texted with a lady and scheduled her first appointment but when I went in to open the message so I could write her name/number/address down in my appointment book, IT VANISHED. now a new client will think I just didn’t show up because I have no way to find out who she is or how to contact her now. This is a new business I’m starting. I’ve lost atleast 10 opportunities in the past week and I’m devastated now. I have never wanted to throw my phone so bad
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
