      text messages via sky talk

      I,ve recentley purchased a new set of phones BT Synergy 6500 which has the feautre of sending texts from your land line, as long as you have caller ID.

      My line rental is via Sky and i do have Caller ID. My question is has anyone else tried this and does it work?.

      I've have contacted Sky on three occasions and recived three diferent answers, as follows---1. No Sky do not support this service.
      2. Yes Sky do support this feature.
      3.Yes Sky do support this feature but only if availble at local exchage.

      I think No.3 sounds about right although advisor did not know how to check if it availble or not.

      Does anyone know the ins and outs of this service?

      thanks in advance Dominic.

      A friend used to use this service when she had BT. She's moved over to Sky and her connection no longer supports the texting.

      For reference to others, this allows you to text mobiles or for mobiles to text your land-line. The messaging goes to the phone handset and you don't get a telephone call reading out the message.

      If you are on the non-sky network it will work, if you are on SVBN then it won't work.
