What Happens When You Text Message A Land Line


My home phone just rang and it was an automated operator at the other end.  The recording told me I had a text message and asked me if I wanted to open it.  I have never received a text message on a land line before, so I naturally chose to open the message.  The message was then read to me by some text-to-speech software, it was something about Manny Ramirez, and that was it.

It turns out my brother accidentally text messaged my home phone.  Now I know what happens when you do that.  He works for Bell Mobility IT services and this was news to him.

Now don't go trying to text message from a land line.  It hurts your finger dialling all those characters.
