Sprint today announced a way for its mobile subscribers to send text messages to landline users. Customers do not need to sign up for any additional service or do anything different. They simply send a text messages as they normally would, and if it is sent to a landline number the recipients phone will ring and text is read as voice message. Landline recipients can then choose to respond with pre-definied text messages or a voice message. Text to Landline is available to all subscribers with two-way messaging enabled phones.

Free doenst mean FREE, it means "pay up suck'a"

I just saw the post for the free txt to landline. I gave it a try and was bothered by a response i recieved from the sprint network saying that "standard text messaging rates apply". i thought, "what rates?! to a free service?!" i have unlimited text messageing, so i wanted to know the deal on the fees. customer service said the fee didnt apply to me, but to the landline customer. i brought up my aurgument that charging them was stupid. if i send a text message to the wrong #, they charge the wrong person. i told them it was being advertised as a free service (free to me, i have unlimited text messaging) so why are they trying to lie about it and still take money. anyway, seems pretty crooked to me on that part. its only .10 but still, its t...

This has been around since November

Text to landline from Sprint has been around since November. It is a great service and costs no more than a normal text (10 cents) if you are not part of a text message plan.

I have used it for quite some time and has worked like a charm each time.
I was just gonna post the same thing.
