jcostom asks: "I'm pondering the purchase of a pager, so as not to give out my mobile number to all the clients. In the past, I've had Skytel pagers, which I was always happy with, service-wise (I had the SkyWord Plus service, with numeric, alpha and VM) but the pager was pretty large (almost a small VCR!). I'm intrigued by the Timex Beepwear offerrings, which use Skytel services, but are much smaller (a watch, or you can remove the band and get some nifty holster-type things). My requirements are: numeric, alpha-numeric, voice mail, can get alpha pages from an e-mail, nationwide coverage, and availability of personal 800/888 numbers. Skytel can do it all but are there any other options that might be better?"
