Not using cell phones does not automatically excludes sms as an 
option. In many countries, it is possible to send sms to a normal 
land number and the phone company reads it for the receipient. In 
other words, you send the text as sms, they do text-to-voice 
conversion for you. Normally, one can also replay the message by 
pressing a button on the phone.
