Pager Services Today Are a Better Buy Than Cell Phones

By: Anna Woodward

In today's age of technology, most of us think about cell phones when you talk about business communication. However, alpha-numeric pagers can be a wonderful alternative when you need notification messages but don't need the added features of a cell phone. They are simple to use, reliable, and much cheaper than cell phones. Their batteries last for months and you do not have to worry about charging them every night like you do a cell phone. Alpha-numeric pagers these days come with nationwide paging capability, and the costs are very reasonable.

Many alpha-numeric pagers available are easy to wear on your belt or carry in your pocket. They allow you to stay in touch anywhere in the nation including inside buildings and in remote areas where cell towers do not exist. The cost of these pagers is usually below $50.00, and you can easily find monthly nationwide paging service plans for less than $25.00 each month.

If you are in the market for an alpha-numeric pager, another great option is a line of pagers that are slim, fit on your belt, and offer you many advanced features. These advanced pagers offer you a four line display and the ability to zoom into an enlarged two line display. This is a wonderful option for those of us who need the extra large text to read. Some also have a 20 character display per line allowing you the best, clearest, messages possible from your notification center.

Some lines of numeric pagers have a very user friendly icon driven user interface. This user interface is simple to understand and use even for those less comfortable with technology. These may have a backlit display for easy reading in dark areas or in your car. These usually have an amazing 32KB message memory capacity and date and time stamps each of your received messages.

Of course, you may want to personalize your alphanumeric pager with a large selection of ring and beep options. You can set it to ring like a phone, beep like the pagers of the past, chirp, or even vibrate if you prefer that option.

Most alphanumeric pagers will run for about three months on one single AA battery! Also, look for a battery display so you will know far in advance if you are in need of changing the battery to a new one.

Consider an alpha-numeric pager available for nationwide paging and the added bonus of an out of service range indicator. This allows for you to know if you are not in range to receive your messages.

The more advanced alpha-numeric pagers can be purchased new for under $70.00 with nationwide paging packages starting at under $25.00 per month.

Alpha-numeric pagers can be a great alternative to the cell phone for professionals such as doctors, lawyers and anyone required to be on-call 24/7. They are cheaper than cell phones and allow you to receive a message you can choose to respond to if needed.
