BlackBerry technology enables 3 Hong Kong to offer 10 mobile numbers on one SIM

3 Hong Kong has now launched a new service called Numbers Master for iOS and Android smartphones based on technology from BlackBerry. According to the press release, Numbers Master is capable of loading up to ten mobile numbers on one SIM and users can make or receive calls anytime, anywhere via those ten numbers, allowing them to separate office and personal calls with the utmost ease.

Numbers Master has been designed to suit the rising "bring your own device" (BYOD) trend. Our service grants employees the ability to switch to the office number via an app on their personal handsets anytime, anywhere. As well as boosting efficiency among staff, Numbers Master eliminates the need for corporations of any size in any industry to pump resources into purchasing and maintaining handsets, said HTHKH Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Tan.

As part of the announcement, 3 Hong Kong also announced they would be the first carrier in Hong Kong to offer the all new BlackBerry DTEK50.

3 Hong Kong is the first local telecoms operator to launch BlackBerry's thinnest-ever and highly- secure DTEK50 smartphone. Aimed at corporate customers, the DTEK50 offers an innovative, safe and reliable mobile service via Numbers Master. Starting today, customers subscribing to a monthly $1682 4G LTE plan can get the DTEK50 handset for free, along with a 1GB data entitlement, plus myTV Super Basic Pack and Premium SVOD3, and waiver of requirement to subscribe to a value-added service, during the contract period.

Additionally, the first 100 customers subscribing to the plan will get a free BlackBerry MP-12600 power charger valued at HK$468.

Numbers Master from 3 Hong Kong enables one SIM to carry 10 mobile numbers – setting a new record and offering a service ideal for corporations

Hong Kong, 31 August 2016 – 3 Hong Kong, the mobile division of Hutchison Telecommunications Hong Kong Holdings Limited (HTHKH; stock code: 215), today announced launch of Numbers Master, which is capable of loading the most mobile numbers onto one Hong Kong SIM. This breakthrough allows corporate customers to use one primary number plus a record maximum of nine additional numbers – all controlled via a mobile app. Users can make or receive calls anytime, anywhere via 10 numbers on one handset, allowing them to separate office and personal calls with the utmost ease.

Service managed by mobile app and compatible with iOS/Android smartphones

Numbers Master is compatible with iOS and Android smartphones and based on technology from BlackBerry, which is widely revered for system security. The new service manages 10 mobile numbers on one SIM via a mobile app, and provides a clear, stable and high-quality voice service when connected to a telephone circuit. Corporations and SMEs served by 3 Hong Kong can add nine supplementary numbers to a primary number on a smartphone via a dedicated app. This doubles the number of additional numbers offered by a similar service on the local market, and represents a significant advancement in SIM card functionality. Customers are able to switch between numbers, or turn them on and off at any time via use of an app. Each number "owns" a personalised interface and labelling, and comes complete with call- forwarding and voice mail settings. Personalised labelling of any one mobile number is displayed onscreen when calls and SMS are received, so users know whether a call or SMS is of a business or personal nature. Voice, data, SMS and roaming usage by additional numbers is deducted from the entitlements of a primary number's monthly plan. Numbers Master is especially suitable for Hong Kong's banking, insurance and property industries.

HTHKH Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Tan said: "Numbers Master has been designed to suit the rising "bring your own device" (BYOD) trend. Our service grants employees the ability to switch to the office number via an app on their personal handsets anytime, anywhere.
