    Any idea on how to setup the Reply to Message setting to send a message to a different number?

    Example: I get a call from a landline. I clearly cannot send a text to this number, but I'd like to send a text back to his or her cell phone.

    Thoughts? This situation is actually coming up quite a bit for me. People calling me from their house phone, or from their work lines...

    No possible. Nor should it be.

    Open contacts. Find person. Send text.

    haha geez, you guys sound like you're fun to be around...

    Apple provided us with an incredibly convenient shortcut to send a text in situations when we are unable to answer a call. I'd like to take full advantage of it.

    Seems like it would be advantageous to be able assign a number as voice-only, with an alternative number assigned for messaging. This would also be helpful for people who use a supplemental texting app.

    Maybe for examples like this they could impliment it where if you have multiple numbers for the person that is calling you in your contacts already, and you want to message them back, it'll take you to their contacts page and you can pick which of the 2 or more numbers to pick from. (long run on)

    I think that could be a way around it, and of course it would be nice to turn this feature on and off.
