Toronto -- Rogers Wireless, the leading wireless carrier in Canada, today announced the launch of TXT 2 Landline service. Thanks to a complete, premium messaging application provided by TeleMessage, Rogers Wireless is the first Canadian wireless carrier to provide customers with the ability to send text messages to landline phones anywhere in Canada and the Continental US. The text messages are converted to voice and can be delivered in English or French.

"Text messaging is a non-intrusive method of communication which has exploded in popularity," said Raj Doshi, Vice President, Product and Hardware Management, Rogers Wireless. "But not everyone has access to a text messaging device or is able to communicate in text. Rogers Wireless TXT 2 Landline service enables young customers to connect discreetly with their parents, couples to stay connected throughout the day, professionals to communicate outside from within meetings, and the visually impaired to communicate with friends and colleagues who use Text Messaging. We're pleased to further enhance our customers' ability to stay connected to the people that matter most."

Rogers Wireless TXT 2 Landline service converts text messages into voice format for delivery to landline phones. When a TXT 2 Landline call is answered, an automated voice system delivers the message, and provides the wireless phone number of the message sender. If the recipient has Call Display service, the wireless phone number of the message sender will appear. The recipient is then able to replay the message, send a voice message reply to the original sender, or terminate the call.

Meanwhile, the mobile user (original sender) will receive a confirmation text message advising that their message has been successfully delivered, whether it was delivered to an answering system or a live person, and whether a voice reply was sent back. If a reply was sent, the mobile user can call into a unique telephone number to listen to the response.

For a limited time, Rogers Wireless customers can send TXT 2 Landline messages at the same cost as a regular text message. Starting April 1, 2005, customers will be charged an additional $0.25 per TXT 2 Landline message.
