AT&T has announced “NumberSync” which seems to be focused on being the solution for when you forget your phone, lose your phone, or your phone battery dies. AT&T didn’t explain the service too well in the announcement, but said that it would be a network-based service so it would be fully cross-platform (however, that would mean manufacturers need to work with AT&T to support NumberSync). AT&T says that with NumberSync, you’ll have “freedom” from the following situations:
- You will no longer need a fitness band and your smartphone to stay connected when you go for a run.
- Forget your phone on the way to the store? You won’t have to turn around to be able to ask your spouse if eggs should be on your list.
