I just purchased an Apollo ALA25. But it was $198 from WiPath Sydney :shock:

Contrary to popular belief, the use of pagers did not die with the turn of the century. In fact, choosing to purchase a pager is still a common occurrence among many professionals and one that offers a variety of modern options. Before going out to look for a pager, however, buyers should be aware of the details of these options. First, buyers need to decide on the type of pager they want to buy: numeric, alphanumeric, or two-way. Next, buyers need to consider the different features that pagers offer including the alerts, memory, time and date stamps, and voicemail capabilities.

Hi all.
I have been using an actual pager for when away from home for several years now.
Started with an Apollo ALA25, pretty good, but then upgraded to a TPL Systems Birdy WP R2, that can have up to 128 capcodes in it, hand programmable too.
But, have now further upgraded to a Swissphone s.QUAD X35, this pager is awesome, very well made, & very expensive, like a swiss watch ! Probably a bit too high end for my use, but anyway, I do like to know about emergency situations, weather warnings etc., very handy... The Swissphone pager is highly customisable too.
