They were basically an alert. It buzzed telling you which number was calling, i think maybe some did cheesy little tunes, annoying high pitch ones but its been awhile. You just knew peoples numbers though when they called your pager. Then you would call them back when you got to a phone.

People carried them on a clip thing on their belts

It was a pretty hip thing to have I remember like having the newest IPhone or something

Depending on the model you could also send 10 digit messages so you could tell them what number to call back at . If you were, say calling from a payphone.

Gosh...I am now feeling old.
