Also known as beepers, these handheld devices ruled the early 90s. They started with being able to receive numeric messages (phone numbers). Then came the alpha-numeric pagers which allowed us to read a message. Two-way pagers rolled pretty late in the day by which time the mobile phone technology had begun taking its shape.

Pagers haven’t completely left this planet though. They have found usefulness in emergency medical and fire services.
