How do you send a message from an iPhone to a pager?

Here is what I found from Quora.

  • Numeric Pager– for this type of pager, you dial the pager number, wait for the  tone, and then dial your number followed by #.  Your number shows up on the pager’s display.  Short numeric messaging (911 for emergency, etc…) can accompany your message, but in a very limited fashion.  The recipient typically cannot reply using the pager.
  • Alphanumeric Pager– for this type of pager, you can send a message via text messaging, email, or both depending on the model.  If the pager is a two way response device then you may receive receipt confirmations and other limited, menu driven messages.  Nowadays this is exceedingly rare.

So, from your iPhone you would either dial a numeric pager and use your touchscreen dial pad to send your number and/or short numeric message, or you would send a text or email message if the recipient has an alphanumeric pager.
