This falls under the category of, “I did not know that”!
Verizon wireless has a little feature I found out about yesterday. It’s called Text to Landline and I can see it being very useful.
Verizon Wireless Text to Landline service enables subscribers to send text messages converted to voice messages to most White Pages listed phone numbers in the United States.
After the recipient’s address is checked for delivery eligibility, your text message will be recorded in a female voice. A standard call will be placed to the landline number after which the recipient’s phone will ring. If the phone is answered, a recorded message will ask whether the listener wishes to accept a message that has been sent from a wireless subscriber [sender’s phone number] at no charge. If the listener accepts, the recording of your text message will be played. If the call is received by an answering machine or voice mail, the recording will be delivered to the device or service as a voicemail and the message will be deemed as successfully delivered.
How cool is that? And it is a mere .25 cents a pop.
Thanks Carol for the heads up on this!
