Do pagers even exist anymore?

Post by MonkeyDLuffy » Thu Feb 05, 2004 5:40 pm

I went to my friends japanese school. They had an Obentoo 2 book, and had a 2 page thing of these japanese school girls with pagers. Now, somehow, they powers of that book make me want a pager!

I did a search at BestBuy.com because they have some low prices, and pagers don't exist! It is all cell phones, and caller ID, and crap like that. Why can't I just have a pager? I hate cell phones so much. Why did they take away the pager goodness?

I was going to go buy one soon because my cell phone is dying, so at least I could get messages. I mean, if you looked around you, everyone has a cell phone, and you can just borrow theirs.

My question, where are all the pagers??? >_<

Um....beats me. My father and sisters have pagers, but they're about the only people I know who do. Everyone else has those awful cell phones! X_x

I'm the opposite. I don't like pagers, but I love my cellphone. It doesn't go anywhere without me. Hell, I can't remember the last time I used my home phone. My cell is easier. Everything's programmed into it, I have voice-dialing, and beaucoup de minutes. I love it.

They do still exist, though I couldn't say where to buy them now. One of my teachers still uses a pager as a way for students to contact him.

I did a few searches, here are some sites you might wanna visit.

I hope you can find which pager you're looking for!

Me: This is coming from the kid who doesn't know what Viagra is!
Ko: It's cold medicine, right?
Our Group: NO!!!
Me: Can I just say?
Dylan: Sure, it's no weirder than what normally comes out of your mouth.
Me: (says what)
Ko: .....What's that?
Me: ......*starts crying*
Carley: STEVE! STEVE GET OVER HERE AND TELL KO WHAT VIAGRA DOES!
Steve: See, it's like this: The bridge goes up and the soldiers rush out....

Tiff: Aww, you killed someone for me. That's so sweet in a f***ed up sort of way!

Thanks Celexia, but it seems they don't have any that really I need. Ugh, I should have gotten one in the past -____- I still hate my cell phone, it is half broken, and it junk. Maybe I can get a really small cell phone and make it LOOK like a pager :P
