Sprint launches text to landline service

Apr 25 2006 - 12:39 PM ET | SMS, Sprint Nextel, Unique

Sprint Nextel announced Text to Landline, a clever service that allows Sprint customers to SMS any landline phone in the US. The text message is converted into a voice message which gets played back for the reciepient. At that point they can reply with a preset text message or record a voice message.

Text to Landline automatically kicks in if the number an SMS is going to is not a mobile phone. Standard text message rates apply.
