This is the BT text to voice reader service. If someone tries to send a text to your landline it will read it out for you. Unfortunately it does have a habit of dropping the line as soon as you answer, but it will call back later. It is safe.

Pretended from BT and that my landline had received a text and it had gone to BT's messaging service. a) I'm not on BT, b) my landline provider doesn't accept texts to any messaging service, c) on another 'look up site' someone else was told this number purported to be from Nationwide. It can't be all these various things so SCAM. Avoid. Don't press anything.

BT Messaging Service, as others have said before. You've received a text message on your landline and option 1 will get it read out to you. I believe you can set the times between which you receive these calls, so you should be able to get rid of those pesky late night/early morning calls. I haven't tried it myself, but I'm sure I heard something about it as I was deleting the message and hanging up.

Audio text service number. It's owned and operated by BT and is used by most mobile phone operators and some businesses to relay audio translations of text messages that someone sent to a landline. Free to answer. The system will ALWAYS tell you the originating number before giving various options. Try it by sending a text from your mobile to your landline.
