AT&T NumberSync membuat Samsung Gear S2 tidak butuh smartphone

Operator telekomunikasi AT&T asal Amerika Serikat hari ini mengumumkan bahwa mereka telah mulai menjual Samsung Gear S2 dengan AT&T NumberSync. NumberSync adalah layanan yang memungkinkan pengguna meninggalkan ponsel tetapi tetap menggunakan nomor seluler mereka. Samsung Gear S2 adalah smartwatch terhubung pertama yang mendukung baik fungsi telepon dan pesan dengan NumberSync.

Pelanggan AT&T yang sudah memiliki Samsung Gear S2 bisa mendapatkan NumberSync di perangkat mereka melalui update software. Sedangkan pengguna baru Gear S2 bisa menikmati NumberSync secara langsung.

NumberSync memungkinkan pengguna mengirim dan menerima teks, serta membuat dan menerima panggilan, dari smartwatch dengan menggunakan nomor ponsel yang sama yang sudah dikenal baik oleh keluarga, teman dan kolega mereka.

NumberSync beroperasi di jaringan nirkabel AT&T dan tidak tergantung pada koneksi Bluetooth untuk sinkronisasi dengan smartphone. Pengguna bahkan dapat menggunakannya saat smartphone mereka dimatikan atau terputus dari jaringan.

Get Samsung Gear S2 with AT&T NumberSync Starting Today for $99.99 with a Two-Year Agreement.

Recently, we announced NumberSync, the service that lets you leave your phone, but bring your number. We are excited that you can get this service, available only from AT&T, starting today on the Samsung Gear S2, making it the first connected smartwatch to support both voice and messaging with NumberSync.

Existing customers can get NumberSync on Gear S2 through a software update. New customers can enjoy NumberSync upon initial setup.

NumberSync lets you send and receive texts, as well as make and receive calls, from your smartwatch using the same mobile number that your family, friends and colleagues already recognize.

NumberSync operates on the AT&T wireless network and is not dependent on a Bluetooth connection to your smartphone. You can even use it when your smartphone is off or disconnected from the network.

NumberSync is a great example of AT&T’s culture of innovation in action. The idea came through AT&T’s employee crowdsourcing platform, The Innovation Pipeline (TIP), and the early prototype was developed at our AT&T Foundry, a fast-paced and collaborative innovation center.

Just in time for the Holidays, AT&T is offering the Samsung Gear S2 for $99.99 with a two-year agreement allowing customers to experience the power of NumberSync at a price that won’t break the bank. A Mobile Share Value plan (minimum $30 for a new plan or $10 to add to an existing plan) is required.

NumberSync on the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch is just the beginning. We’ll have more to share on future devices soon, so stay tuned and check out for more information.
