I believe it's a service that you would need to activate via Sky. It's not available on all Sky lines. Call them on 150.

This has just happened to me. Did you get it sorted. I phoned sky and they didn't seem to understand what I was talking about.

To confirm: you're not receiving text messages on your Sky landline?

Yes. When someone sent a sms text to the landline, the phone would ring and when you answer a robot says something like "you have received a text message from (phone number)" and then it reads the message. These messages are no longer getting through.

Just a thought - are  you using Sky's Talk Shield that might be blocking the number? If not I'd suggest calling again. Hopefully you'll be connected to an adviser that knows about the service.
