Sending SMS to landline on Vodafone Sweden

Sending SMS to landline on Vodafone Sweden
Vodafone Sweden introduced a service where mobile phone users can send SMS to fixed line numbers. All telephone users with a regular fixed line can, as of today, receive text messages - SMS - from Vodafone Sweden's mobile customers. Messages are automatically delivered as a phone call.

Vodafone is offering a slightly different and entertaining communication service. To send an SMS message to the fixed network, customers follow exactly the same procedure as with mobile SMS, except you enter a fixed network number (including area code) instead of a mobile number prior to sending.

When customers receive an SMS via the fixed line, their telephones will ring in the same way as with a regular incoming call. When the customer answers the phone, a computerised voice automatically reads the message and specifies the sender's telephone number.

This service is also available to Vodafone Sweden's mobile customers when they are abroad. Mobile users do not have to enter Sweden's prefix when sending an SMS home to the Swedish fixed network, but simply dial the fixed network number in the exactly the same way as they would in Sweden.

If the recipient does not answer or if the line is busy when the SMS is being sent, the system will automatically make eight more attempts to send the message - once an hour. If the recipient still does not answer on any of these nine attempts, the message is automatically deleted without the recipient having heard the message. Messages are recorded onto the customers' telephone answering machines. Senders of SMS automatically receive a receipt when their text message has reached the recipient.

To prevent the service disturbing people at inconvenient times, there is a limit on when SMS can be sent to the fixed network. The fixed-line SMS delivery times are: Monday-Friday between 07.00 - 22.00 and Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays between 09.00-23.00. For fixed-network text messages that are sent outside these hours, deliveries will automatically be resumed when the network is open for SMS deliveries.

Anonymous text messages are not permitted. They will automatically be blocked from delivery. The price of sending SMS to the fixed network will be exactly the same as SMS to other mobile phones.
