Shopping around for a pager?
Considering buying a pager on Ebay or Amazon without service and thinking you can just connect anywhere?
Here are some questions that you may not have thought to ask when selecting your paging service provider:
This is probably a question we hear daily and unfortunately, the answer is often no. The reason is because a pager needs to be on the proper frequency and not tied to another account with a different paging company. Many pagers that are offered for sale on a marketplace such as ebay from private sellers are on old paging frequencies that are no longer in operation or from an account that owes money to the paging carrier and is not able to be reactivated. We don't recommend buying a pager from one seller and trying to activate with a different paging company. If you still insist on doing this, get the frequency and capcode before purchasing the pager and let us know this information ahead of time to see if we can add it to our system. Also find out the return policy in the event the pager doesn't function or receive pages.
