Hi, I'm a psychotherapist looking to only carry one device (Verizon Motorola Q smart phone). I'm wondering if, using NotePage software or otherwise, it would be possible to replicate pager functionality -- someone calls a number (preferrably a different number than my cell phone, this would be for crisises only), touchtones in their call back number, and then I get a text message on my cell phone.

This seems pretty simple, but Verizon doesn't support it directly and I can't find a paging service that does it.

Any replies, leads, etc. appreciated on NotePage, commercial services, ....

Thanks.

PageGate can be configured to perform EXACTLY this function

Yes, you can configure PageGate to do just that. You would want to use PageGate with the GetTone Module.

Basically, the way it will work is you'll install PageGate on a computer with a modem. You'll then tell PageGate's GetTone Module to monitor that modem for any incoming calls.

You would then give out the number of the phone line that the modem uses to those who would want/need to page you. They call the number, PageGate has the modem pick up the phone line, they enter the touch-tones, PageGate reads them in and messages them to your Verizon device.
