Who still has a beeper?


According to David Harkleroad

Sign at symphony, “Please turn off cell phones and beepers.” Who still has a beeper???

I responded

@davidharkleroad 6 million ppl in US “still has a beeper”, & most cant “turn off”. 1 reason: http://bit.ly/3G7u1B

Paging is not simply cheaper than cell phone text messages, it’s much more reliable, penetrates buildings better, works better in difficult terrain, etc. When disaster strikes, you’ll be glad the first responders use pagers.
