I sent a text message to someone. I thought it was that person's cell phone number. It wasn't. It was a land line number. I got a text back from Sprint initially saying I'll have to pay 25 cent to send the message but then it said that my first message is free! It then say all future text to landline would be 25 cents if I opted in. How do I make sure that no text to landline past thru and instead it should say "undeliverable"? Anyway, I have never heard of a text to landline and I don't want any surprise charges!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I received a couple or more text reply asking me if I want to send the message, reply with "y" and it will cost 25 cents. Explain how this mobile to landline text works. how does a landline get a text message? is this a new service? I want to opt out of it completely. if I send another text to landline, will I be getting the same alerts again? Answer all my questions; not just 1 or 2 answer. all of it. Thanks!
so when I send a text message to a landline phone number, it would actually "CALL" the number and a "robot" would read the "text message"? Is that how it works? what happens if it goes to the landlines voicemail system? does it have time to speak the message after the greeting starts? where can I get more information about this type of service? I sent a text to 9360 with stop but I did not get a response back on that text.
why don't the annoying msgs asking us to accept the .25 charge, also tell us how to STOP the annoying msg? I have rec'd 4 msgs in the last 2 hours and none included instructions on how to stop the msgs. That's what led me to this page. I did reply STOP, let's see if it works...but how to stop the msgs should have been included in the msg to begin with.
unless you already have you will need to ask this question in the customer service forum. site changes as of a month ago so now all non phone specific questions are taken care of in there.
no worries. if you run into any future issues make sure to hop into the cs area..if its a specific device there are forums dedicated to those as well to help keep things a bit more on track..ish.
