Not sure about all carriers, but I know some will call the landline and “read” the text message. I got a call recently and when I said “hello”, an obvious digitized voice informed me I was getting a text message from a Virgin Mobile number (that I recognized as a friend’s), then read it aloud in a siri-like voice. It was a little strange. I don’t know if other carriers do it or not, but it is a neat idea.
