    I have an Alltel BlackBerry 8330 and I was always able to send texts to landlines, but for some reason, ever since they merged, I am unable to do this. I have called Verizon a few times and they are not very helpful.

    My landline is provided by AT&T, if that matters.

    How would the landline recieve the text? As a voice message? Or in the caller id area? I was not aware that you could send a text to a landline.

    yeah, or at least you can with Alltel

    but when they answer the phone, it tells the message you sent, its pretty neat

    Text-to-speech - extra charge.

    Try sending one to your home number - your phone should prompt you for the service.

    It is blockable by anyone with account access.

    That IS a neat feature. And why does it not surprise me that big red charges extra.

    Doesn't matter - that is considered a premium text service & outside the bounds of the contract or plan.
