Question Pagers in Japan?

Please Login to Remove!

Dear all,
Our office is based in Japan (Tokyo) and we are planning to introduce pagers to our staff (either 1-way or 2-way).

Any ideas which pagers are recommended? Can I use Blackberry Pagers?

Please advise, as I am newbie.

Thank you.

Regards,

Does your company have computers, internet or even gas powered automobiles yet?

Sorry, but pager is an outdated technology but yes, a BB can do that and a whole lot more. Start here http://www.blackberryforums.com/show...=3494#post3494

then read more of the guides here http://blackberryforums.com/showthread.php?t=252

Hollar back if you have more questions...

Question

Dear Soapm,

If Pager is an outdated technology why are they still in use? In addition, why do major power houses (including Blackberry, Vodafone, T-Mobile) are still "selling" them?

I checked the reference links you sent and one of them was useful. Thanks anyway for your replies.

Regards,

I wasn't aware RIM (the maker of the BlackBErry) was still selling pagers. Do you have any references for a RIM pager?

You can still ride a horse but that doesn't mean there isn't better alternatives.

Maybe if you give us more detail of what you're trying to achieve then someone might make a suggestion. Who knows, pagers may be what you need.
