How to Enable SMS Receipt on my Plusnet Landline with a Compatible Handset

I have just switched landline from BT to PlusNet.
I used to receive and send SMS texts via my compatible handset with BT.
How do I set up PlusNet to do the same?

It should work just the same as with BT.
Caller Display is required (optional extra @£0.99/month on Plusnet Home Phone).
You may need to re-register to enable the service, see this BT guide: http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/8510/~/all-about-bt-text

Many thanks.  Now set up.
Not as good as BT though as they gave you 200 free texts per month and then 10.5 p each thereafter.  Plus net does not seem to have any free texts and they are charging 12 p per text for using the BT service!
