The radio networks to support the pagers are shrinking. I had one for my job, because I needed to be on call after work hours. It worked great, it did one job and did it damn well.
The problem was the coverage area started to shrink. The paging company could no longer afford to pay for the tower leases to maintain their network, so we started losing coverage in rural areas. Now I have a damned iPhone to maintain, charge, etc. Ugh!
I HIGHLY recommend at least trying a pager if you are going to spend your time in an urban area! Outside that, coverage may be iffy. I miss mine terribly...
