    I'm trying to send a text to a friend of mine - to his cell, but I keep getting a message "xxx-xxx-xxxx is a landline #. Reply Y to send all TXT messages to this # as voice messages for $0.25/msg + std msg fee. Details @ vtext.com, TexttoLandline"

    I KNOW that this is not a landline, I've texted him many times before from my previous phone. Any work around?

    This pirate walks into a bar with a big ship's wheel down his pants. The bartender says, "Excuse me, sir, but do you know you have a ship's wheel down the front of your pants?"
    And the pirate says...
    Aaargh, it's driving me nuts!!


    Ahem... Do you know what carrier the number is on?

    I would call Verizon they should be able to fix it. If the other number is not Verizon a third party sms vendie handles all texts.

    Well, it started when I loaded Handcent, so I un-installed it and it's still doing that.

    He's with AT&T I think.

    Thanks - I'll call them tomorrow and see what's up.

    Was just hoping maybe someone had experienced the same thing before and knew how to resolve it.

    I don't like the way the messaging is set up. If they have 3 numbers you have the option of sending messages to those 3 numbers. Who is going to send a text to a home or work number. My eris isnt set up like this, I don't know why the Incredible is.
