Anyone collect pagers as a hobby? I don’t, I just didn’t throw away my old pagers. I will not go into detail of the pagers as I have done it in my previous post here. When I asked my wife about her pagers for the filming of the documentary by Vertigo Pictures, she brought out 2 of her pagers too, so altogether we had 4 pagers in our collection;
Believed you can guess which 2 belong to my wife hehe. There are something I liked about pagers : they don’t need to be charged like our handphone, just change the battery (AA or AAA);
They are more lasting than the handphones as all my pagers still work well after so many years.
Do you still remember reading the news on Weekend Today that Singtel had ceased paging services on 9 July 2008?
Then later the VP of SunPage replied that Sun Page is still providing paging services to its clients;
