Thanks to a complete, premium messaging application provided by TeleMessage, Rogers Wireless is the first Canadian wireless carrier to provide customers with the ability to send text messages to landline phones anywhere in Canada and the Continental US. The text messages are converted to voice and can be delivered in English or French. ...Rogers Wireless TXT 2 Landline service converts text messages into voice format for delivery to landline phones. When a TXT 2 Landline call is answered, an automated voice system delivers the message, and provides the wireless phone number of the message sender. If the recipient has Call Display service, the wireless phone number of the message sender will appear. The recipient is then able to replay the message, send a voice message reply to the original sender, or terminate the call."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/Temporale-20050227-RogersWirelessLogo.gif" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/> <br /><br />This news release is a couple months old, but what I really want to know is, how does Mauricio from Geekzone (in New Zealand) know about this before I do? After all, I live here in Toronto - where Rogers Wireless is based out of. :? Anyway, it sounds pretty cool, and now that Fido is owned by Rogers, I'll have to give this a try.
