No, you have to be at least a Sergeant.
Is it still possible for a private to buy a pager?
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier
and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the
service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
love and thanks of man and woman."

I have a pager, but no paging service.
It has been rigged to buzz about 3 minutes after you press the button. That little bugger has saved me from countless boring meetings.......
Actually, cell service here stinks. text messaging is okay if you are in an area with cell service. There's a reason I have a 2meter in all of the vehicles !

I have one for work. When it goes off at 2pm or 3am, my reaction is the same. It normally gets thrown, I hate that thing.

Up until recently our weekend duty crews still carried them. I liked them because they got better reception out in the desert then my phone does, so I could still go shooting and be within the reasonable distance to report in.
It takes a college degree to break'em;
and a high school education to fix'em!

I have a pager and there are lots and lots still in use here.
My pager is issued to me by the Sheriff Dept. Everybody has one. Its how they alert everyone for man hunts, road trips, whatever.
The Nuclear Plant that I work for also issues them. If the SHTF, an alert goes out to all affected workers, which I am one of.
Rather than carrying two pagers, they have the number of the one that I carry.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

I also have a pager issued by the nuke plant I work for, hate the damn thing, but it still gets messages when inside a room that is 20' underground and has 4' thick concrete walls. Can't say that for a cell phone.

Yes. I have one for SWAT and Narc call outs.

There are many areas, especially in the hospital itself, where there is no cell service but there is pager service. Many pager transmissions come from satellites. Cell service is, by definition, from a close by cell tower.
