The AT&T Wireless outage on 2/22/24 is a great example of how a pager could have come in handy during this time.
Suppose someone needed to get in touch with you for an urgent matter. They could have paged you or sent an alphanumeric message via email to your alpha pager with a brief summary of the issue and you could have used either a landline or borrowed a friend's Verizon or T-Mobile phone and handled the issue.
Pagers rarely go out of service especially during times of natural disasters when phone congestion is at it's peak.
