I've made the following textmagic tool, since no other options were available:

https://github.com/nicknomo/Python-TextMagic-PRTG-Phone-Notification

The super_HA version is what I'm currently using/testing . It allows for a backup connection, and accounts for local DNS failures. You can even hardcode the IP addresses of textmagic in case all DNS fails.

If anyone has any feedback, please raise an issue on the github page! Thanks

Yes this is possible. Setup a SMS Notification and enter as Recipient Number your land-line phone number. The SMS to Speech Service (if available) will then read the SMS message to you.
