PagersDirect offers pager service on a local, regional or nationwide basis via the two largest paging networks in the USA: American Messaging or USA Mobility. You will be dealing with PagersDirect for your pagers, billing and customer service, however the actual paging signal transmission is via one of the paging carrier's networks.
Although many areas have good paging coverage on both paging networks, some areas have better reception on one vs. the other just as cellular carrier networks have their own coverage differences. Please keep in mind that paging networks are independent of cellular phone networks and pagers may receive in areas that cellular phones do not.
In addition to offering service on both of the major paging carrier's networks, PagersDirect also offers 800/888 toll free numbers, voicemail, extended range services and many other options customized for your pager.
Important: If the area that you need 1-way paging coverage is not showing on the paging carriers maps, we also offer two additional paging services that may work for you.
1. Virtual paging brings paging to your cell phone. With Virtual Paging, we provide a pager phone number and when your callers send you a page, they have no idea that you are actually viewing the page on your cell phone as either a text message, email or via the iphone pager app (available for iphone).
2. The Brand New Zipit® Now™ 2-way pager utilizes the nations largest 3g data network, therefore, it's not relying on the paging carrier's networks but the 3g data network where coverage is much broader.
