My Pager Number Is 40x xx47

My Pager Number is 40x xx47 …. When I first said that in the late 80s, I felt so proud of being the owner of a pager. You don’t see people wearing a pager nowadays too (or maybe not too common);

The one on the left was my first pager in 1989 when I had my first sales job. At that time, it was still 7 digits without the 9 added to the pager number. At least, mine was considered new fashion if you compared it with those long and skinny type of pagers without any display. Those were probably the first generation of pagers I’ve come across – just a simple beep with no display; when you received a beep, you just returned a call to the company (usually it’s used by the company you worked for).

Take note of that old Telecom logo on the pager. Here are the receipts I still kept, my goodness – $260 for a pager!
