Landline text messaging allows you to send an SMS message from your mobile phone, which is then converted to voice when the receiver picks up his landline phone upon it ringing. If the person does not answer the phone, then the landline voice text goes to voice mail. Sending a text message to a landline phone may come in handy in the event that you cannot converse verbally. Many wireless carriers offer the text-to-landline feature. However, you may need to subscribe to the service depending on your wireless provider.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the "Messaging" application on your mobile phone. Select the option to create a new message.

  2. 2

    Enter the recipient(s) landline phone number into the "To" field.

  3. 3

    Type the contents of your message into the message field. Do not enter abbreviated words, as the computer will not be able to decipher them.

  4. 4

    Press the "Send" button to transmit your message to the landline phone.

Tips and warnings

  • Most recipients can reply to landline messages by speaking a message in the same manner as a voice mail. The message will be converted to text and sent back to your mobile phone.
