    TORONTO, Ontario, Feb. 4 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell Canada today announced the
availability of two new services, Online Voice Mail and Text to Landline

    Online Voice Mail allows Bell Home Phone clients to retrieve voice
messages online as an audio file attachment from any computer in the world
with an Internet connection. The Text to Landline service offered by Bell
Mobility allows clients to send text messages to any landline phone, including
Bell Home Phone.

    Online Voice Mail

    With Online Voice Mail, messages can be easily accessed and managed
through a secured web portal. Clients can also receive real time notifications
of new home phone messages via email or text message on their Bell mobile
phone. Online Voice Mail is available for as little as $3 per month.

    Online Voice Mail includes the following features:
    - Listen, delete and download voice mail directly from any computer with

    Text to Landline

    The Text to Landline Service offered by Bell Mobility enables clients to
send text messages to any landline phone. Text messages are converted into an
automated voice message delivered to the recipient's phone. The message can
then be heard live or is sent to voicemail if the call is received by an
answering machine or voicemail. A confirmation message is sent to the sender
indicating whether the message was successfully delivered to a live person or
a voicemail system.
    If delivered to a person, the recipient will have the option to respond
immediately by sending a voice message back to the original sender, who
automatically receives a notification message. The Text to Landline service
works with any landline in Canada or the US. Regular text messaging rates
