How To a Send Text to a Pager

By Christina Sloane

Although pagers can't send out information, it is possible to send a text message to certain pagers using email, as long as the message is short and the pager has the capability to accept and display text messages.

Step 1

Find out the pager's number and service provider, if you don't already know it.

Step 2

Look up the pager service provider's format for email addresses. With most service providers, the email will be (10-digit-number)@(serviceprovider.com), but .net is also used with some providers. With this information, you can figure out the email address for your pager.

Step 3

Log into your email and click "New Message."

Step 4

Type the pager's email address into the "To" field of your email form.

Step 5

Type a short message into the body of your email form. Try to keep it under 160 characters, as you would when typing a text message.

Step 6

Send the email. The pager will receive your message as a text.
