It's farewell time for pagers in Japan

Dec 05, 2018 17:20 IST

It's time to bid farewell to pagers, as Japan is saying goodbye to its last pager service, Tokyo Tele-message. The company will be shutting down the service in September 2019. After a remarkable period of over 50 years, pagers have become redundant in the face of mobile phones. They were at the peak in the 1990s, when movies and songs also featured them as symbols of that era.
