Text To Landline: Yup and we will automatically read your message out loud over the phone. For real.
Now you can send text messages to landline phones. Just type in your message, send it off, and we'll read it out loud to the recipient over their landline phone. Simple as that. And the best part is... it costs the same as a normal text message!

How do I use it?
Just type a text message like you normally would and enter the 10-digit landline phone number in the "Send To" field.

When the person answers his or her landline phone, we'll read your message out loud to them.

Once you send your message, you'll receive a confirmation text message letting you know if your message was received. You may also receive a voice reply or a short text reply from the person who received your message. You will be charged your normal text message rate for each confirmation text message and text reply you receive.

Personalize it
You can choose to include a recording of your voice in your Text to Landline messages. Just call 1-781-577-6890 (standard airtime rates apply) and follow the prompts to record your name.

Then, for every Text to Landline message you send, the person receiving it will hear your own recorded voice saying your name before the recorded message: "...has sent you a Text to Landline message."
