    TELUS Text to Landline

    I just noticed that TELUS now has a text to landline service.

    Does anyone know if there is a fee for this service or is it free if you have unlimited text messaging?

    Thanks.

    Pretty sure it's included in your text package, I use it every now and again and have never gotten charged.

    Also it's not new, it has definitely been around for years.

    Just noticed? It's been around for quite some time. As for how it's charged, it's just like any other text message. If you have a text package it's just deducted from it. If you don't it's $0.15 like any other message.

    It's definitely not new. I use that for my answering machine outgoing msg because I want it to sound robotic. If you have more than 2 sentences, make sure you put "period space space and Capital next word" otherwise it sounds like a run on sentence that wouldn't stop.

    i guess that's one way, but couldn't you just find a synthesizer online?
