EE's smart number tech lets you use one number across multiple devices

Smart number technology lets you have just one number that can be used across up to six devices letting you send text messages and make calls from your phone, laptop, tablet or smartwatch.

Once paired, incoming calls to your main number can be received on any of your paired devices.

Max Taylor, managing director of marketing at EE: "We've made it our mission to give our customers fantastic new technologies that make the most of our award-winning network to help keep them connected, wherever they go and whatever they want to do".

Your primary device must be on EE's network to use this service.

EE Smart number will arrive on Android devices in the future, although EE has given no indication of the timescale in question.

The company's new smart number technology allows you to make and receive calls and messages across tablets, watches and laptops using a single number. You'll then be able to take advantage of smart number technology on recent iPads running iOS 10 and later, various Mac and MacBooks running OS X El Capitan or later, and Apple Watch Series 1/2/3. I recommend jumping on a Wi-Fi network and plugging in your device beforehand you don't get any data overage charges on your bill and your device doesn't die during the installation process. The first is that you need to be on a pay-monthly contract to benefit. We can already do something similar with Skype and other VoIP solutions, although being able to use your mobile number in this way would be handy. You can be engaged in multiple calls simultaneously if that's your thing and you can hand over a call from one device to another without interrupting it, which sounds useful.
