Yes, I know – 1990 called and want their tech back. The reason of the pager is to not replace the phone, but compliment the phone. Since this is not a public number, I will not provide the telephone number. Instead, when referencing this number, you would seeĀ [Pager]. I had tried virtual paging, but it didn’t work the way I wanted it to. This number is on a new Apollo pager, and there is a backup pager just in case this one fails to work properly.

My pager number is only provided to a few people. They are then instructed to use this pager if they can’t reach me by telephone, and it is an emergency. The pager is always in the same room as I am. Since it is loud, I don’t need to carry it with me (such as from the couch to the desk).

The pager is a black Apollo Bravo 500r pager which is one of the few brand new pagers that are available for purchase. The one thing I don’t like is that that pager number is owned by Pagers Direct, and it does not support porting (even to another pager provider). This will be another reason why I will only provide this number to a select few.
