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)

    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:  Edit:  Two more confirmed locations of conversion sites:  T-Mobile eNB 875316 Location: 40.7314623618499, -73.82849493999701   T-Mobile eNB 875868 Location: 40.75304305996773, -73.85311593221213
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use.
