Two Way Pager Use
My daughter came home for a few days, and we had a great time! We
live in different states, but she keeps in touch with me daily, either
on email or by Wyndtell pager. If you haven't heard about the Wyndtell
pagers you should visit the site to at least see them!!!
We pay the unlimited fee of $59 per month, which is much like a cell
phone charge. She can use it for so many things! She calls me on the
telephone by typing in a message and then putting my phone number in. It
calls me and voices what she types!!! She can email, receive and send
faxes, call AAA, do lots of things! We talk back and forth sometimes
almost like instant messages with it!
A short story to tell: She was with a friend last night and her dad
(who was waiting for her to come home to grandpa's house) called me and
said she was late and he wanted to know where she was! He couldn't get
online cause I was online on the account, so I emailed her pager, and
within about 2 minutes she wrote me back that they were on the subway
heading to grandpa's house. I told my husband and he felt a lot better.
Pretty neat, huh?
The pagers vibrate...are pretty small...have a keyboard to type that
is really tiny (you should see her hold it and use her two thumbs to
type really fast!!) At school she once wrote: "I'm walking between
classes and I hope I don't run into a pole!" Most of her friends at
school also have one, and they use them to keep in touch with each
other, make meeting plans, etc. - just like we use our cell phones....
What a wonderful thing for the HI and deaf.
