Disable? Just don't text a landline.

 

How are you supposed to know? ...

 

Example, when looking to buy on Craigslist I always text the number on the ad to inquire etc. Sometimes I find myself texting landlines.

There isn't an additional cost to text a landline.

 

I was just going to say that too. I never knew of any charge for this.  I know the voicemail charges for the voice to text, if that is what he means?

Unless the ad says to specifically call or text for inquiries on the item why would you text the person?  i could see maybe if you were phone shy?  But...if you insist on texting from your end, then I gues you will need to take the time to run the number through one of the websites that show who the owner of the number is.

True story. The app Flixster has a deal where you get free movies added to your ultraviolet account if you spam/text a certain number of people about the deal. I chose businesses in my address book such as the pizza place, my dentist, doctor, etc. I thought I was being slick.

 

After hitting send I remembered text to landline. lol 

 

Oops. :-)

 

(If I could turn it off, I would too)

    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
    • From a few days back: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/deutsche-telekom-aims-50-t-mobile-ownership-2024 DT Chief Executive Timotheus Hoettgas said buying the majority stake in T-Mobile US was the group's most important strategic project at present, according to Reuters. He said that stake should top 50% much sooner than its previous projection of 2024. Earlier this year, DT paid $2.4 billion to SoftBank Group to increase its stake in T-Mobile US to 48.4%.
    • 5.9GHz finally approved by a court: https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/court-upholds-fccs-decision-59-ghz.  This should be added to 5GHz wi-fi.  considering wi-fi 7 will be included in the qualcomm x70 and related SOCs, doubtful they will be able to add this now, unless designed to be added later.  5.9GHz will given us a third 160MHz unique carrier iirc, a major improvement.
    • waiting for about 400 with demand > supply, or 95% to look again in some detail.  Until then : https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
