    I know that you can receive texts from cell to landline, but i'm not sure if it goes the other way

    Just use AIM? Type +1 then the area code and phone number as the user you are texting. Easiest way to text if you don't want to use a cell phone.

    id like it to show up as a number, not as a sn though

    essentially iwa want all the features of a cell phone minus a cell plan as i would ideally just use my land line or sometheing
