Pager Services

Service Description: 

Pager service has been arranged through a contract between the University of Washington and a local provider. 

The most basic pager is the display/vibrate type, which only displays the telephone number of the number to be called. The alpha-numeric type allows the person doing the paging to send a message up to 240 characters in length via email or Personal Digital Assistant (PDA). Two-way pagers can both send and receive text messages and have the same coverage as nationwide pagers.

Service Options: 

There are five options for pager service:

  • Local display/vibrate
  • Local alpha-numeric
  • Nationwide display/vibrate
  • Nationwide alpha-numeric
  • 2 Way alpha
