Something I use at the office in lieu of a pager is this. I set up a Vonage phone number. I can access the account online and see a log of every call rec'd or made.
I have it send me an email everytime a message is left on this vonage number. The email shows the number where the call originated, I can then call my vonage number and get my messages. If you want the actual calls forwarded to your BB, it is easily done on the website.
There is another neat feature, only 10 cents a call, it will transcribe the voice message into a readable email and send it to your BB.
The cost for this phone line is CHEAP probably the same price as the pager. On mine, I never hooked it up to make calls, it is only used as a 'virtual number'. On all vonage numbers, incomng calls are free and access to your account online is great. Besides keeping a permanent record of all the calls comes in really handy when you have a need to know this info. Pagers only store a few of the most recent calls.
Calls can be easily forwarded directly to your office and handled normally then can easily be used as a pager when you need it.
All these options are FREE!
