My numeric-only pager just bought the farm & I’m tired of the cheap plastic, biodegradable offerings from the local wireless company.
I did a Google search on Abuse Resistant Pagers & came up with more sites relating to the copious consumption of alcohol than I care to read!
Any one out there able to suggest a specific model of pager that can take the abusive pounding that jobsites provide? I’m thinking that a metal case & metal belt clip would be a good platform to build a device around but the “highly trained customer representative” that I spoke to at the local wireless outlet gave me a blank stare similar to deer caught in my headlights when I tried to explain what I’m looking for!
No fancy ring tones or alpha text messaging, no integrated camera, no on-board games or upgradable software and color is not a selection criteria!
Unlike a Suit & Tie, I tend to move around a lot and twist, crawl, get banged by heavy objects and generally take more abuse than the average consumer “toys” were ever designed for.
For those who might wish to suggest a cell phone, I have one of those but prefer to leave it in the vehicle & receive pages only, selecting the time when I wish to converse with someone by returning their page from my phone on my schedule ie; not perched precariously someplace with both hands required to prevent an argument with gravity.
Thanks in advance,
