    Didn't see it posted yet, and it seems to be new for SPCS customers. Send SMS/Text Messages to any landline... Haven't tried it yet so I have no idea how well it works.

    Sprint PCS - Text to Landline

    Wonder how fast the novelty of this will wear off?

    Cool! Since I am deaf, especially useful. I have seen services like this before but it cost $$.

    Yes you read it right, plus it works well, even bad words . Just send a text from your Treo/any Sprint cell phone to any landline # and they will receive it, and they can respond back to you. Just some info. for ya all....

    Pretty cool, but how do we hear voice replies?
    I'll elaborate.

    I sent myself an sms to my work number from my treo.
    My work phone rang and a voice said that there was a text to landline message sent from someone (someone being the number of the sender). Then asked to press 1 to listen to message, so I pressed one.
    It read the sms out loud to me bright and clear. then presented me with two options, reply by voice or reply by text.
    I chose reply by voice and said my message and pressed 1. system told me that the reply was sent.
    I then get a sms saying that I got a reply and to press TALK to listen to it. There's not TALK button or option in the SMS window.

    so how to i listen to this reply?

    So if you have unlimited SMS, I assume you can use this all you want for free?

    When you get the sms saying that you got a reply etc, just select "respond" then select "call sender" you will then be able to listen to the message.

    Or just tap the number that shows up in the reply to dial it and retrieve your reply.

    Its part of your texting plan until October 2, 2005. Then I believe their will be a different charge. I believe Rogers is also doing this.

    It certainly looks that way. At least until October 12th.

    Anyone here try it yet? I tried it a couple of times (1 SMS to home phone, 1 SMS to work phone) and it didn't seem to work -- neither phone received a call or message.

    Probably not something I'd use regularly, but just wanted to try it out.

    I've heard of others that have had "hit or miss" experiences with it so far. I haven't had a chance to try yet...

    Same here (no call)

    I'd assume they are still in the testing stage.

    I tried it here at work...however, not sure if the girls in billing got it or not...I did see if the faq's though that delivery will be attempted and if no answer the only way it will save is if the individual has sprint VM on the line.

    Since you're handicapped you may be able to get them to let you use it indefinitely at no additional charge.

    I've found a lot of ways around "fees for this and that" when the things are a necessity for my blind hubby.

    Hmm maybe, but when it comes to Sprint I'd file it as "not likely"
