Who Remembers there first pager?

Home Inspector with WWW.ExecutiveRestoration.Com

Who remembers your first pager?  I had my first pager in 1985.  My pager number was 529-3880.  This number no longer works but someone would call it and input their phone number and I would call them back. If you try to call this number and try to contact me now, it is not the way to get in touch with me.  It seems like just yesterday that I had my first pager and then this led to the huge bag phone that was first 4 watts.  Who remembers these days?  Who had one, besides David Snell?  I would be on a job and I got a beep or a page and I would use the customer's landline to call the client back.  Using a pager or beeper was very inconvenient to say the least.  Wink.


My name is David Snell and I own a company called Executive Restoration and Certified Mold Inspection with Sample and testing and scans to walls and determine if the home has water damage or had water damage or elevated levels of Mold to the home or building.

Hello David - I started using pagers many years(err decades) ago.  Long before real estate.  Must have been in the 1980s.  They were company-owned and for business purposes only.  I purchased my first pager contract just before I became licensed in 1993 and I still remember that phone number(the actual pager is long gone).  In fact, after I got my first cell phone(remember how large they were), I kept that pager because cell rates were so expensive and we were charged for incoming calls in those days.

I'll admit it... I don't remember... do you think maybe that's because I never had a pager? 😉

Michael, when cell phones cames out they were not affordable so I continued with a pager for many years and I just sacrificed.
