Last February, we announced Rogers One Number, a new service exclusively from Rogers that lets you talk, text and send picture messages and video chat with other Rogers One Number users, all from your computer using your existing phone number. Your feedback was positive and several of you told us that Rogers One Number really helped to simplify your life. So what’s next for Rogers One Number? Well, we’re thrilled to tell you that the service now works with your home phone and tablet, and we’re rolling out a solution for small business customers as well.
Get even more from your one Rogers wireless number. With an Internet connection, you can now extend your Rogers wireless number to make or transfer calls using a computer, tablet, and regular phone with an adapter.
- On iPad: With the Rogers One Number app, you can talk on the go, and even video chat with other Rogers One Number users. The app is expected to launch soon for Android tablets as well.
- On Your Regular Phone: With the add-on service, you can connect your regular phone to a telephone adapter and use your wireless number to make calls using the Internet. You’ll enjoy unlimited Canadian long distance and not use your daytime wireless minutes while using your regular phone. The adapter is $24.99, the add-on service is $9.95 per month (plus applicable taxes). Visit your local Rogers retail store to purchase the adapter.
- Check out this video for more information about how you can extend your wireless number to your regular phone.
If you’re a small business customer, we’ll post updates about the business solution on RedBoard Biz closer to launch.
