That spooky landline texting has happened again.

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

About a year ago I wrote about the experience of getting a text on my land line phone.  It was strange.  It didn't happen again until yesterday.

The phone was ringing and when I picked it up the message came through this way.

Robotic voice says with no expression, "Have a nice dinner.  I will call you tomorrow."   The robotic voice actually sounds almost threatening.  Why would someone call me and wish he a nice dinner unless it was going to be my last one?

I quickly hung up and started thinking.  And then I think I figured it out.  I'd called my daughter and told her we were having friends for dinner and unless she called me back quickly not to call until the next day.  She had probably done that text message.  She'd just got my message on her cell phone and answered by text not noticing that I'd called her on my landline.

With landline, words have to be spoken so there's no telling how much trouble it is to get it through.  I'll see if there is an extra charge for texting on the landline.  Hope it is not much or daughter will be in trouble!!

Alan, try it sometime and see what you think.  At least you will not be surprised when you get one.

Cynthia, you wouldn't have been spooked.  You're a brave one!!

Tony, I want to know what it costs before doing it much.  That may be another blog.  Landlines need a way to make money and that may be one way.

Patricia, try it!!
