How to Leave a Number When Paging Someone

Pagers have evolved since they were first introduced into the marketplace and are often referred to as "beepers." Originally capable of only receiving a numeric page, the newest alphanumeric pagers can now send and receive text, as well as email. If you only need to leave your phone number for a return call, it is a simple process.
