Verizon Digital Phone and Alphanumeric Pagers

Sending Text Messages

Anyone with Internet access can send an alphanumeric message to an Verizon Wireless Digital customer who has subscribed to Text Messaging or an Verizon Paging customer. It's just like sending email to a phone or a pager.

Want a response from the person you are paging?

If the person is using a two-way pager you will be able to get a response each time you page them.

The PF1500 pager has 13 canned responses:

Will Call Later
Thank You
Send More Information
On My Way
Will Arrive 15m
Will Arrive 30m
Call Me
Can I Call You?
Send # to Call
Traffic Delay
If you use the Internet web page you can have up to (6) additional Custom QuickReply Responses that will allow you to accurately relay your message. This is a great feature to use, specially if the person you are trying to contact is not near a phone or cannot use a cell phone.

PF1500 Pager - only canned responses can be sent

T900 Pager - any response can be sent
