From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]:

n
  1. an electronic device that generates a series of beeps when the person carrying it is being paged
    Synonym(s): beeper, pager
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   pager
  
      1. (Or "beeper", "bleeper" (UK?))
      A small wireless receiver that, when triggered (generally via
      phone), will beep or vibrate (un)pleasantly.   The wearer will
      have been trained to respond to this signal by looking at a
      small screen on the device for an unimportant message.
  
      In recent years, pagers have grown more complex, allowing for
      long {alphanumeric} messages to be received and scrolled
      though (as opposed to earlier models, which supported only
      short numeric messages); at the same time as pager functions
      are integrated into some {PDA}s.   If this trend continues, the
      distinction between {PDA}s and high-end {pagers} will
      disappear.
  
      {Short Message Service} allows a mobile phone to display a
      message, just like an alphanumeric pager.
  
      2. A program for viewing a {text file} a screenful at a
      time via a text {terminal}, as opposed to scrolling through it
      in a {GUI} window, or {cat}ting it all at once to the
      terminal.
  
      The best known pagers are {more}, {less}, pg and list.com.
