Default Unication E3 pager

Are these pagers on the way out or something?

I've noticed everyone is pushing the G1 or the other newer voice ones.

I'd like to grab an E3 shortly but not if it's basically going to be wasted money.

Any ideas?

The E3 is an alpha-numeric pager and the G1 is a voice pager. They are not interchangeable.

We are an authorized Unication dealer, if you are interested in more information and pricing.

As far as being on the way out, the E3 is not on the way out.

The G1 is a 2 tone or 5/6 tone voice pager, the E3 is a POCSAG alphanumeric text pager.

While some photos show messaging on the G1, it's not mentioned in the specs.

The messaging you see on the photos of the G1 was when they made the GSM model. It worked on a SIM card with a monthly data plan and received text messages, IamResponding and Active911 calls, or anything that was also emailed to the SIM card.

Yeah…I think there's still an E3 model with GSM. Unication should really correct their site and brochures. Kind of misleading for potential buyers.

Thanks for the replies. I should have been more clear. I am aware of the difference between the different ones they offer.

I was just curious since the two dealers near me never really have them for sale on their site, only the G1 and newer styles are available for purchase and only had information about the E3. They could get one for me, but I was just alittle put off with it not being promoted as much.

It is good to know it isn't on the way out though!

I have the E3 for use in Horry County, SC. Works very well and easy to program. The only improvement I'd like is the ability to use a wild card in place of a complete code via the PPS. That would allow station alerting rather than only individual unit alerting.

Alpha paging is not near as popular as voice paging. That is most likely the reason they don't advertise them.
