send text messages ONLY to mobile phones

Every time I wish to compose an SMS/Text to a contact selected from 'Contacts' , I see included under that contact- an SMS/texting option even for Landline numbers for that contact.


Where I am from, we don't have yet the facility to send text messages to Landlines. SMS/Text receiving is possible only to Mobile phones.


Anyways whereby I cannot inadvertantly send SMS/Texts to Landline numbers? 


Appreciate your answers. Muy thanks in advance

Re: send text messages ONLY to mobile phones

I understand your need, but times are changing worldwide where even "home" and "work" lines are also mobile and your phone cannot determine the difference in landline and wireless.


So many people are beginning to use wireless for home and work phones.
